I had a webshop which was index by google with https. Now my SSL certificate is expired, and the https request don't work anymore. I want that people who click on a link in Google or other links starting with https get redirected to the http version. I already tried ISAPI rewrite (45 day trial) but my solution did not work. Maybe there are others way to do this. Thanks in advance

1) why not buy a new cert? Is it too expensive?
2) If you really do not want to encrypt anymore, you also could apply a self-signed cert to your SSL server, and put an Info page with delayed redirection to your unsecured web page.

1) Maybe I gave not enough information. The webshop is moved to a new URL, my old URL was http://www.mywebsite.com/store/. I was able to redirect all request from store to redirect to my new domain. However, the http requests are not redirected.
2) How can I do this?

I am still not sure if I get you right. Redirecting in general can be done as follows: create a default HTML page on the old place with the following contents (see code).

Does this help you?

If not, please clarify on the type of old = deprecated request URL, and type of new URL.
