Domain Forwarding to https://domain.com/firstname.lastname fails

I am trying to forward hansoninvest.com to https://ameripriseadvisors.com/greg.hanson/, however, it gets trapped saying the site is not secure and https in the URL is lined-out. 

What is odd is that I have hansonfunds.com forwarded to hansoninvest.com and it successfully resolves to https://ameripriseadvisors.com/greg.hanson/. 

CNAME - Host www points to @ 

The A record in hansonfunds points to "Forwarded" and hansoninvest points to an ip address. Other than that their records are the same.

 

Comparing the two domains I noticed hansonfunds.com was forwarding using http and hansoninvest.com was using https. I changed hansonfunds to https and it failed. I changed hansoninvest to http and it succeeded. Setting them both to forward to http correctly resolves to https at the destination.

Correction: it worked for about 5 minutes. hansonfunds is still set to http and works, hansoninvest does not appear to work with either http or https.

 

When I use Preview they all work, when I save and test in a browser tab it fails.

 

 

Help me, Obi Wan. You're my only hope!

Re: Domain Forwarding to https://domain.com/firstname.lastname fails

I am seeing a report of mixed content no matter if it's forwarded or direct.  This is coming from images loaded over http:// instead of https:// to be secure, specifically it's the emblems next to the contact details .  As this is in the code for the page an administrator for the website would need to resolve it.

Nate,

Thanks for the reply. I am embarrassed to admit that clearing my browser cache fixed the problem. The redirects are working happily.

Yikes! What a newbie mistake...
