Upgrade HTTP Requests

SiteDetour has the optional support for redirecting all HTTP to HTTPS.

On this page:

Overview

SiteDetour allows your redirects to upgrade from HTTP to HTTPS before performing a redirect. This setting can be useful when you don't have an HTTPS upgrade setup on the target url, or if you want to ensure that your redirect happen over HTTPS.

​To turn on this feature simply click on your redirect, and then hit advanced options. From there simply enable the "Upgrade HTTP Requests" toggle as shown in the screen shot below.

Example

Let's say we have a redirect for "sitedetour.com". When the Upgrade HTTP option is not enabled a request to http://sitedetour.com will immediately redirect to the target defined. Once we enable the Upgrade HTTP option, any request to http://sitedetour.com will first 302 redirect to https://sitedetour.com and then perform the redirect to the target location over HTTPS.
