Redirect to HTTPS
Allow HTTPS only configuration to responds with 'redirect to HTTPS' when HTTP request is received. This will be very useful for the new static website storage accounts. Especially, when the wider premium 3rd party CDN is not needed.
This is in progress for Azure CDN from Microsoft.

Pretty please add this in, I need to use a premium CDN to accomplish this now
A web server looks at the "Host" header in the HTTP request to see which site it needs to serve. The SSL negotiation happens before the HTTP request is sent, so at that point the web server can't tell which website it will display. It will always send the same certificate to the browser. https://www.mobdro.guide/

Ya, this would definitely help in configuration. The default error is rather disappointing, as users think there is an outage.
Definitely need this feature.
Current page is really ugly.
And what is more awful that users think that your site is down because of this message :(
The same thing for static web sites hosting BTW
"Our services aren't available right now
We're working to restore all services as soon as possible. Please check back soon.
now with Static website hosting in Azure Storage which is in preview, force HTTPS is a real need.
helps drive the internet to HTTPS only.

second that! no need for a fancy rules editor, just give us a "force https" option on all profiles.
