Question: How do I force users to use the SSL version of a folder on my website?
Answer: With e-commerce websites it is very important to make sure your customers have a secure connection to your website. Nothing can be more damaging to a business than to have sensitive user information leaked to would-be attackers and cyber-criminals. While you can always make sure your links point to the SSL version of a particular page, user might still reach the page without the “https” protocol. Using a simple Apache rewrite rule, you can ensure that even if users go to http://www.yoursite.com/billing, they will be redirected to https://www.yoursite.com/billing.
In the directory you want to redirect, create an empty .htaccess file and add the following code:
RewriteRule (.*) https://www.yoursite.com/billing/ [R=301,L]
That is all it takes. Now you will guarantee your users a secure experience whenever they access your site.
