I have enabled SSL for my site in the vhost file. I also have the redirection for the non-www to www over port 80:
<VirtualHost 126.96.36.199:80> ServerName pretty-story.com Redirect permanent / https://www.pretty-story.com/ </VirtualHost>
However it seems it takes a lot longer (about 2 seconds) to redirect from non-www to www over https.
So if I type
http://pretty-story.com, it quickly resolves to
https://www.pretty-story.com but if I type
https://pretty-story.com it takes more than 2 seconds to resolve to
I tried to add the following :
<VirtualHost 188.8.131.52:443> ServerName pretty-story.com Redirect permanent / https://www.pretty-story.com/ </VirtualHost>
But then the website becomes inaccessible.
What should I do ?
Here's the results on pingdom (using Sweden because my CDN is only active in Europe):
https://www.pretty-story.com -> 874 ms
http://www.pretty-story.com -> 1.04s
http://pretty-story.com -> 947 ms
https://pretty-story.com -> 2.51s !!!!!!!!!!!
