Attention valued Acceleration client:

HTTPS Secure badgeYour website hosting plan with Acceleration now includes a Free Secure Certificate that allows visitors to securely visit your website, even if you do not take payments online.

While this is already available for your site, the HTML code within your site must be properly written before redirecting any insecure (HTTP://) traffic to the secure (HTTPS://) protocol, otherwise browsers may not load the content (images, javascript, CSS, etc.) correctly. This is done by making sure all of your website’s local sources reference relative paths (e.g. <img src=”/images/flower.jpg”> ).

Once your code has been reviewed and appears to be using all relative paths, redirecting your site’s traffic from HTTP:// to HTTPS:// can be done by one of three ways:

1. Using a web.config file in the root (or “parent”) directory of your website, add the following code:
       <rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true"> 
         <match url="(.*)" /> 
           <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
         <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" />
2. Using a .htaccess file in the root directory of your website, add the following code:
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
3. Let Acceleration configure the HTTP to HTTPS redirection setting, free of charge.

Just let us know your code is ready, and we’ll take care of it!

If you are unsure of whether or not your website is ready to switch over to using the secure HTTPS:// protocol, please do not hesitate to reach out to us, we would be happy to review your site.
