Hosting and redirect to https

Hello experts,
I’ve run into an issue. I’ve developed an ASP.NET site with a Master Page structure for a client who already had hosting set up on 1and1. We needed to install an SSL cert. All works great EXCEPT when they try and reference the site without https://www.clientsite.com when the go to the old linky http://www.clientsite.com obviously nothing is found. Normally I’ve had access to the sever in which I could load Microsoft’s redirect module or use Go Daddy who has the module installed. Well as things would have it 1and1 is several decades behind in the server side technology and I’m struggling to find any way to redirect.
I’ve tried a couple different approaches including adding redirects such as these to both the master page and default page with  no luck:
If Not Request.Url.Scheme = "https" Then
     Response.Redirect("https://www. clientsite.com/Home")
End If

I contacted 1and1 and they sent me this:
http://help.1and1.com/domains-c36931/domain-administration-c79822/ssl-certificates-c39129/how-do-i-redirect-traffic-to-my-ssl-secured-site-a618201.html

I’m not sure I see the relevance as I’m using a master and that seems to reference .asp vs .aspx further I’ve done an almost identical scenario in the code above.

Any direction would be great.

This how I am doing that in a MVC web site, in the Home Controller module:

                if (Request.Url.Scheme != "https")
                    {
                    var baseUri = new Uri("https://" + Request.Url.Host);
                    var relUri = new Uri(Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath, UriKind.Relative);

                    return (Redirect(new Uri(baseUri, relUri).ToString()));
                    }

They are asking you to create a default.asp file which is what IIS will try to serve on http. In the asp file, user will then be redirected to https. Try putting that code in a default.asp and placing in your root folder.

I ended up doing this plus adjusting the default page in my web.config
