However on the new site accessible from the subdomain there is no automatic redirect from http to https, is this something I have missed on the netlify side or on the side where I purchased the domain?
Could you please share the Netlify URL where you’re seeing HTTP? Sounds like maybe there was an problem provisioning or extending your SSL certificate, as we do force HTTPS on all connections. Thanks!

There more information about this header here:
If that header isn’t available for any reason, please send the information it replaces (or as many of these details as possible). Those details are:
