Stack Exchange network consists of 176 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
I typed in http://area51.stackexchange.com and I did not get redirected to the https version. Is this intentional or a bug?
The redirection works for stackoverflow and stackexchange
It redirects for me. Maybe the redirect has been corrected/added since you posted the question?
https://area51.meta.stackexchange.com uses the HTTPS protocol but http://area51.stackexchange.com does not.
I think this may be that they have not installed a SSL Certificate on all servers or included it in the area51 subdomain
