htaccess redirect https domainA to domainB

Hello, I am trying to redirect domainA to domainB via the following entry in my .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domainA.com
RewriteRule ^(.*) http://domainB.com/en/ [P]

Open in new window

This works quite well as I thought it did but it does not when a person types into the url https://domainA.com 
Then the customer is not redirected to domainB.com.

What am I missing here ?
