Traditionally, implementing HTTPS on a website or redirect required quite a lot of time and effort. Website owners needed to own an SSL/TLS certificate and manually implement it. Aside from that, from a search engine optimization perspective, they have to ensure that all of the outdated HTTP links are rewritten to the HTTPS version. Otherwise, users may experience errors, often causing web browsers to display warnings such as the image below. In some cases, it can even block the user from visiting the website entirely.
This is where we can help. redirect.pizza includes an automated HTTPS service that enables you to implement SSL/TLS certificates in a couple of clicks. After implementation, the service keeps everything up to date, so you’ll never have to think about it again! Aside from that, both the HTTP and HTTPS versions of your domain will still work. Useful if you’ve got existing redirects via a domain provider - such as Godaddy or Namecheap.
How redirect.pizza ensures your website is always running on HTTPS
To make sure your website is always secure, redirect.pizza automatically installs an SSL certificate on your domain. This means that redirects with "http://" & "https://" are both working. On top of this, we make sure the SSL ciphers are always up-to-date. Only the most secure TLS versions are supported and we'll automatically renew the certificate before it expires.
We're built on top of the SSL giants of LetsEncrypt & ZeroSSL and can't offer redirect.pizza without them. Why use 2 issuers? Redundancy! When one of those isn't responding or is rate limited, we can automatically fall back on the second one. By implementing OSCP stapling, we ensure that even if one of those issuers revokes a certificate, a new certificate is automatically requested and installed.
We're proud to have an A+ rating from Qualys SSL Labs for our HTTPS redirects in all the different plans, even Free!
