I recently purchased a domain that has a backlink from forbes. The site earlier had ssl https and getting backlink from forbes to https://sitename.com

I set up 301 redirection from this domain to my site. Now sitename.com, www.sitename.com and http://sitename.com is redirecting to my site but https://sitename.com is not.

My question is do I have to buy a ssl for this domain so https://sitename.com also redirect or is there any other way to go?

    No need to buy SSL for your old domain https://sitename.com to redirect it again to http. You will have to redirect it with 301 redirection.

    Use this code for it:
    # Redirect HTTPS to HTTP
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} =https
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
