I am also curious about what is the best practice on doing this. Would you just add to the index page <?php header("Location: https://yourdomain.com" ?> so that any time the index page is called it would automatically go to a secure page. Would you have to add it to all the pages of your website so if someone enters on another page it would be redirected to a secure connection. Or would you put a permanent forward by the service provided from the index page to another page. Or is their a better more efficent way to enter into a secure environment?
