Adding SSL to a website

Last Modified: 2014-05-08
I have a website say mysite.com.

There is a section for clients to login mysite.com/clients.

I want that section to be secured using an ssl certificate.

I buy an ssl certificate for mysite.com and add it to the server.

I want to users to still be able to access mysite.com using http but be forced to use https if they browser to mysite.com/clients.  The website is running IIS 7.5.

Is there an easy way to do this?
