I want to force https:// on the index page only of a site.
Right now, I am using htaccess to append www to the url:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.mysite.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.com/$1 [R=301]

How do I force ssl to only the index page? There is a login box on this page and I need it to be secure, but the rest of the pages, I dont want to force ssl (I will control the rest through navigation).
