Plugin Directory

HTTPS domain alias

Enable your site to have a different domains for HTTP and HTTPS.

  1. Upload plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the "Plugins" menu in WordPress.
  3. Make sure the wp-config.php defines the needed constants.


define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);
define('HTTPS_DOMAIN_ALIAS', 'example.org');

The plugin scenario assumes the site domain is example.com but there is no https certificate for it. Instead there is a https certificate for example.org, which has been defined as the HTTPS_DOMAIN_ALIAS.

In a WordPress Network installation the HTTPS_DOMAIN_ALIAS can be defined as *.example.org and then <domain.tld> will be redirected to .example.org. This plugin is designed to be compatible with the WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin.
