Forced HTTPS activation implies that all requests made to your website through the HTTP protocol (Port 80) are automatically redirected to HTTPS (Port 443). This means that all requests made to port 80 will be redirected internally to port 443, and in a mandatory way.
To activate this option it is essential to have an SSL certificate activated and previously installed in your hosting service or Cloud. We attach some manuals on how to proceed.
In SW Hosting you can activate the forced HTTPS redirection through the Dashboard of your service in the SW Panel. The steps to activate it are as follows:
1. From the search box of your SW Panel, you must locate the service where the web on which you want to activate the forced HTTPS redirection is hosted.
2. Once located in the Dashboard of the service, you must click on the checkbox "Activate forced HTTPS redirection", located in the box "Available improvements ".
3. In the window that will open next, you must click on the red button "YES, ACTIVATE ".
After a short period of time, your forced HTTPS redirect will be fully operational for everyone who accesses your website.
