Why not default to HTTPS/TLS protocol?

Your site works great using HTTPS... so why not default to doing that? Your site gets an "A" rating for the way you have implemented HTTPS, see for yourself:

You can use HSTS to make your site visitors web browsers automatically connect to your web server via HTTPS protocol even if they click on a HTTP link to get there. All you have to do is add the following line to your web servers headers:

Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains; preload

Once you do that, then go to this page and add your domain name to the list for HSTS preloading in people's web browsers:


You can read all about how to implement HSTS on your website on this page:
