Since Google says https gives websites a small ranking benefit and Let's Encrypt gives free certs, more and more sites have been converted. This is a more thurral snippet of https redirection. It has some rules from Drupal's htaccess. This avoids all kind of redirection loops etc... Also redirect from www to non-www, which can be removed or turned into reverse.
