var httpURL = window.location.hostname + window.location.pathname;
var httpsURL = “https://&#8221; + httpURL ;
window.location = httpsURL ;
<!– end of HttpRedirect.htm file –>

<!– beginning of HttpRedirect.htm file –><script type=”text/javascript”>function redirectToHttps(){var httpURL = window.location.hostname + window.location.pathname;var httpsURL = “https://&#8221; + httpURL ;window.location = httpsURL ;}redirectToHttps();</script>
