Have you just launched a new website and don’t know how to enable Https Redirect in your cPanel account? Don’t panic! You’re in the right place. We will guide you step-by-step to enable Https Redirect in your cPanel account quickly.
The HTTPS stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure is an extension of HTTP. It is used for secure communication over a computer network and that’s why it is important for every website today.
On Internet HTTPS encrypts all user data like financial information, browsing history, sensitive information, etc, to protect against Man-In-The-Middle and other attacks.
In some web hosting accounts the Https is enabled by default whereas in some web hosting accounts it is not enabled. If it is not enabled you have to enable Https manually in cPanel account. Once Https is enabled your website URL is always redirected to Https://.
Follow the steps to enable Https Redirect in cPanel:
- Login to your cPanel account. The Username, Password, and Link are provided to you by your web hosting provider.
- Click the “Domains” located under the Domains section.
- Turn On the “Force HTTPS Redirect”.
- Now open your website URL with and without HTTPS like “http://example.com”, “https://example.com”, and see whether it redirects to HTTPS or not. Replace “example.com” with your domain.
