I have a website hosted in godaddy and purchased SSL (https) support for one year.  when I add custom https with my pages it works fine. How can I redirect or set by default when I access my site to go with https?

for example someone type, http://www.test.com  to go with https://www.test.com

add the following to .htaccess  file
( at the top )
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

Open in new window
