This question already has an answer here:
Serving a apache website via https:// => how can I disable the certificate/SSL handshake on the WWW version only?
Hi we use SSL on the https://www version of our website
Now I would like to disable the SSL connection on the https://non-www version of our website
SO the result is:
- https://non-www => SSL handshake
- https://www => no SSL handshake => and htaccess rewrites are executed
question: Can this be done?
ps. I am asking because nowadays more websites move to https, not realizing that directing non-www to www traffic (and vice versa) is a little more difficult - because the handshake occurs before the htaccess (rewrite) directives .. the solution is ofcourse an extra certificate ... but a better solution would be to do find a solution to just redirect the traffic ...
Appreciate your help
