How to exclude HTTP. Only need HTTPS.

Posted October 1, 2014 3.5k views

I have a website that is controlled by speech-recognition software. The user does not control the website. This website needs to be HTTPS only! I followed this document
to set up the HTTPS: How To Set Up Apache with a Free Signed SSL Certificate on a VPS.

I got it to work but now I want to remove HTTP.

I assume I have to do the following:

  1. nano /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default and remove <VirtualHost *:80>

  2. sudo ufw deny http

I want to be able to use “” or “” and have it resolve to “https://....”

Is there anything else I need to do to make this happen?
