No, I did not leave off the closing anchor intentionally. My knowledge of htaccess is quite limited. I wrote the code based on code snippets I found on the net and they did not have closing anchors. What is the significance of the closing anchor?
As for the order of my conditions, they were already in the right order (again, not intentionally! :-)) but thanks for the tip. It will certainly be useful in the future.
example2.com, example3.com, etc are all domains I bought to prevent competitors from buying them. They do not have a secure certificate. I will ask my web host if there is any way to refuse secure connections for these domains.
