[edit reason] exemplified domain [/edit]
These hosts try to take advantage of their customers. This doesn't need to cost you anything.
Get a free cert here:Lets Encrypt [letsencrypt.org]
links elsewhere formed as www.example.com should still work, will they?
I'm not sure how you did that with Disqus. In my initial test, the Disqus comments will disappear if the site is accessed through https. I'm not sure though if the HTTPS 301 redirect triggered that. In my case I just used disqus recommendation of migration tool which is the csv method, and the process was easier than I thought.
if you enter www.example.com in the browser address bar (without protocol specified) the default requested ptrotocol usually depends on browser settings.

[edit reason] unlinked partial URL [/edit]
But would it be wise to request webmasters hosting inward links to our site change their links to https ..?It's no different from any other type of link where your URL has changed (or the link was incorrect in the first place). If you can get the linking site* to update it, do so. Otherwise, just make sure you've got the appropriate redirect in place.
It's no different from any other type of link where your URL has changed (or the link was incorrect in the first place).Sure it's different. Other links that have changed in path lose some link juice with redirects. Google has stated that an HTTPS 301 will not.
Other links that have changed in path lose some link juice with redirects.Link juice isn't everything. Or, at least, it isn't the only thing. (This is not the Google SEO subforum.) There's also bandwidth and server load and all the details that add up whenever someone has to make more than one request in order to receive a given page.
Hmm, I may have to look at the URLs used in adwords also.
No need. All Adsense is HTTPS.
Unless you're referring to the links you put in Adword ads you are creating.
