How I change a SharePoint web application to run HTTP to HTTPs protocol.

  • Can I extend the existing web application (that is running on port 80) to port 443?

You need to configure SSL to open your site through https:// instead of http://,

You may refer links once your web application is on internet zone you cannot extend it to internet zone again you need to extend it either to intranet, extranet or custom,

  • Can I extend the existing web application (that is running on port 80) to port 443? Yes, but usually I just change the AAM to https and change the bindings in IIS to only use https if you are using IIS 5 or 6, you must "Require SSL".

  • in which Zone should I extend is extranet or internet? Internet

  • here site opens when i type example .com but how i enable by default it opens with https; for example when i type example.com it should be open with example.com – adilahmed Jun 17 '15 at 15:02
  • You are talking about a redirect. One way I know to do that is to custom code your 403.4 error page in IIS, add some javascript that will take the URL and redirect using https. Another way is to use the url rewrite module for iis. Here is an article about that: jppinto.com/2010/03/… – Mike Jun 18 '15 at 13:08
