    Hello!

    Let me explain my problem.Nobody can answer this,and now im here :)

    1x Main-Domain (SSL) public_html/FILES
    1x Addon-Domain (SSL) public_html/DOMAIN.COM <(Files inside)

    The Main-Domain have one .htaccess to force ssl - this works here are no problems.
    But all non SSL visitors on the Addon-Domain get a redirect to the Main-Domain

    Some hours later i found some ways to exlude the Addon-Domain from the .htaccess rules.

    But witch is the best way ?




    1. Force SSl for the second Domain

    PHP:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond 
    %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteRule 
    ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond 
    %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule 
    . /index.php [L]
    </
    IfModule>

    2.Exclude the second Domain on the "main" htaccess


    PHP:
    ### RewriteEngine On ###
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    ### http -> https ###
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?SECOND-DOMAIN\.com$
    RewriteRule ^.*$ '-' [L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTPSoff
    RewriteCond 
    %{REQUEST_URI} !^/[0-9]+\..+\.cpaneldcv$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/[A-F0-9]{32}\.txt(?:\ ComodoDCV)?$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/\.well-known/acme-challenge/[0-9a-zA-Z_-]+$
    RewriteRule (.*) https://MAIN-DOMAIN.COM%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
    ### Rewrite application ###
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond 
    %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond 
    %{REQUEST_URI} !^/[0-9]+\..+\.cpaneldcv$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/[A-F0-9]{32}\.txt(?:\ ComodoDCV)?$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/\.well-known/acme-challenge/[0-9a-zA-Z_-]+$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?$[L,QSA]
    ### Close RewriteEngine ###
    </IfModule>
    <
    Files 403.shtml>
    order allow,deny
    allow from all
    </Files>

    3. I use a shared host, what can my provider do,to "split" this two Domains?


    Thanks!

    Hello,

    One option to consider is to check with your hosting provider to see if they can disable the following option under the "Domains" tab in "WHM >> Tweak Settings":

    Restrict document roots to public_html

    This would allow you to move your addon domain name outside of the public_html directory so it's not affected by the .htaccess rules in the public_html directory. Otherwise, you'd need to exclude the addon domain name from the rewrite rules configured in the .htaccess file located in the public_html directory. Here's a third-party URL where rules like that are discussed:

    .htaccess mod_rewrite - how to exclude addon domain from rewrite rule?

    Thank you.
