One of the unique things about EasyRedir is our support for HTTPS redirects. There are two different types of support that we offer, partial and automatic.

Partial HTTPS support

Partial HTTPS support allows you to redirect from non-HTTPS URLs to HTTPS URLs. For example, let's say you want to redirect from www.foo.com to www.bar.com. Partial HTTPS support would allow you to redirect the non-HTTPS version of www.foo.com (i.e. http://www.foo.com), but it would not allow you to redirect the HTTPS version (i.e. https://www.foo.com). If you attempted to access https://www.foo.com you'd receive an SSL certificate warning in your web browser telling you that the domain names did not match what the browser expected them to be.

Automatic HTTPS support 

Automatic HTTPS, allows you to redirect secure HTTPS URLs to other HTTPS URLs (or even non-HTTPS URLs if you wish). EasyRedir gives you a seamless way to manage HTTPS URLs and provides automatic SSL certificates through Let's Encrypt. To accomplish this, you need to fill in the URL you wish to redirect, and the target you wish to redirect to. EasyRedir will then give you the values needed to modify your DNS records. This DNS record modification needs to be done FIRST. Once the DNS records point to EasyRedir, the redirects will work immediately, and will automatically be configured for HTTPS redirection. EasyRedir uses military-grade encryption to keep all your data secure, including your SSL certificates and private keys. 

Choosing between Partial and Automatic HTTPS support

You only need Automatic HTTPS support if you need to redirect source URLs using HTTPS. This is likely only necessary if you have external links (e.g. search engines, web pages you don't control. etc.) that link to your source domain using HTTPS, or if your organization has chosen to standardize on HTTPS for all your web traffic. This is quite popular as the importance of information security has grown and continues to grow.
