My ISP is saying:
"As the URL you provided is invalid there is nothing wrong with being incorrectly redirected.
The site you are accessing does “not” have an SSL certificate and therefore the URL: [mysite.com...] is invalid."
"You are on the same server and they are the closest IP with an SSL certificate. If you have a valid certificate the issue the url would be valid and no problem would be displayed."
Sounds wrong and possibly damaging to SEO. Is this a common practice?
I'd also check the TOS with whomever you are using for hosting as this seems slightly odd behaviour from anyone that does serious hosting.
i'd be checking that TOS and other service documents to confirm...
The site it redirects to is an .org and although it does have products for sale it also has content and is targeted to a hobby so it's not as bad as it could be.
Still doesn't seem right to me though, guess I'll have to get that SSL sooner than needed.
