Original Domain redirect issue

Once the domain has been mapped, the site is getting redirected from the original domain, then to http protoco of the mapped domainl, and only then it loads the https of the mapped domain.

Please check the chat notes for more info about the site, and screenshots.

    Hello there Dean,

    hope you're doing good today! :slight_smile:

    I've just checked this using a shared Siteground server, with its built-in Let's Encrypt certificates and force-redirect-to-https tools it provides, and I was able to reproduce and confirm this case.
    When I try to navigate in subsite's URL, there's a redirection to http://mapped.com, then another one in https://mapped.com
    I can see that these calls all started at point zero though, I don't know if this is happening due to the HTTP/2 protocol that's enabled in my testing server.

    I've already created a report to our devs, asking if there's anything we can do to force the https:// protocol in first place. Me or another colleague of mine will keep you posted here as soon as we've got some valuable insights, your patience on this is highly appreciated!

    Warm regards,
    Dimitris

    Hello there Dean,

    hope you're doing good today! :slight_smile:

    I just had some feedback from Domain Mapping's lead developer (and I quote):

    This has more to do with browser settings, if I understand the described issue.
    Browsers often default to http when no scheme is included in the URL. The server then has to redirect to https if that is enforced on the server side. This will probably change as SSL has become increasingly popular due to Let's Encrypt's free SSL certificates.

    So it seems that this is rather a browser thing, rather than a plugins or WP issue.
    Hopefully, in a more "secure" future, this will become the default state.

    Warm regards,
    Dimitris
