Apache Web Server Forum

Site Running on HTTP & HTTPS
Is it considered as Duplicate Sites?

 12:27 pm on Jan 23, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hello Everyone,

My client's site is running on two headers:

The client says that this is done for secure transaction reason.

Q1. Is Google viewing it as two duplicate sites?

Q2. Please recommend a way for resolving this.

Thanks in advance for all your help and advice!

Yes, that is a risk. You can resolve it by using .htaccess and only allowing the SSL connections for the checkout pages. See mod_rewrite - and use a RewriteCondition based on the port.

a WebmasterWorld search for "htaccess ssl rewrite" [google.com] should give you all the resources you need to solve this.
