Redirects do not work if port 80 is not enabled in ufw?

I’ve changed my ufw settings to only allow port 22 for ssh and 443 for https.

If i go to it works fine but if i try to go to then it says server not found. I take it i have no choice BUT to enable port 80?

At minimum, you need ports 22, 80, and 443 open and accepting incoming requests. Ports 80 and 443 are web-facing ports that are required for HTTP and HTTPS requests to get through.
