ASP .NET - Redirecting to HTTPS

On a project where I had to install a third party shopping cart, one issue that came up was to make sure all the pages ran under https (many hard coded links used "http").

I put the following code in the Global.asax file:

protected void Application_BeginRequest(Object sender, EventArgs e)
if (Request.Url.Port != 443)
Response.Redirect ("" + Request.Url.AbsolutePath, true);

This uses


to determine if the call was made over SSL.


if (Request.IsSecureConnection)

Another way to write this:

if (!Request.IsSecureConnection)
string serverName =HttpUtility.UrlEncode(Request.ServerVariables["SERVER_NAME"]);
string filePath = Request.FilePath;
Response.Redirect("https://" + serverName + filePath);
