I request a ssl from https://www.sslforfree.com.

Simply fill your website url and request a free ssl.

Then you will get 3 files, Certificate(CRT), Private Key, and CA Bundle. first two are mandatory to install ssl, CA bundle is optional.

Open the file with Text editor, then copy all the content ( include —begin Certificate —- and —–END CERTIFICATE—– line ) in the first two files to the related area in the SSL installation page in the CPANEL.

SSL Certificates expire after 90 days so be sure to re-generate your SSL Certificate. Or you can register by email, so you can get a notice 1 week before the expiration.

Let the visit automatically switch(redirect) to https

 

If you have a secure certificate (SSL) on your website, you can automatically redirect visitors to the secured (HTTPS) version of your website to make sure their information is protected.

Linux & cPanel

Linux-based accounts use .htaccess files to handle redirection.

If you need to create a .htaccess file, you can use your control panel’s file manager (Web & Classic / cPanel).

Using the following code in your .htaccess file automatically redirects visitors to the HTTPS version of your site:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

If you have an existing .htaccess file:

  • Do not duplicate RewriteEngine On.
  • Make sure the lines beginning RewriteCond and RewriteRuleimmediately follow the already-existing RewriteEngine On.

If you ware using WordPress for your website, using following:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress
Windows & Plesk

Windows-based accounts use web.config files to handle redirection.

If you need to create a web.config file, you can use your control panel’s file manager (Web & Classic / Plesk).

Using the following code in your web.config file automatically redirects visitors to the HTTPS version of your site:

<configuration>
<system.webServer>
<rewrite>
    <rules>
	<rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true"> 
	<match url="(.*)" /> 
	<conditions> 
		<add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
	</conditions> 
	<action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" />
</rule>   
    </rules>
</rewrite>
</system.webServer>
</configuration>

If you have an existing web.config file:

  • Ensure you have sections (i.e. opening and closing tags) for:
    • system.webServer (which contains rewrite)
    • rewrite (which contains rules)
    • rules (which contains one or more rule sections)

    Insert any of those sections that do not exist.

  • Insert the entire rule section, including matchconditions, and action, inside the rules section.

    You’re inserting the rule (without an ‘s’) inside the rules (with an ‘s’) section.
