How do I get my domain to default on the secure page- SSL I just bought?

Hi- When I type in my domain it's defaulting to the http version of my site. I can only get to the https version if I  manually type it in. How can I get it to default to the https when I just type in domainname.com?

Hi @HeadTower,

 

If you are inexperienced in changing "server settings" plan a call to support.  If you have a managed WP hosting account, the tech will go straight to a couple of your settings and its done.  In the event that you have a cPanel installation, ask the tech to help you change the .htaccess file so that your domain redirects to your https:// automatically. 

 

Here's the link to what the tech will essentially be doing with you during the support session.

Hope this helps,

Hi @Cathrinegreen,

 

Would like to help, but could you be a bit more specific about your problem?  Also, what is your url?

 

Looking forward to helping out!
