Enable forced HTTPS redirection

The 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 internally redirected to port 443.

To activate this option it is essential to have an SSL certificate activated and previously installed in your hosting or Cloud service. Attached are some manuals on how to proceed.
