I got a question regarding the redirect rules and I’m wondering if it has anything to do with htaccess file.

My default URL = https://www.example.com

All of the following URL redirect very well to my default URL :

http://example.com
http://www.example.com
https://example.com
https://www.example.com

But when I write directly example.com in Chrome or Firefox, it redirects me to the page /wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fexample.com%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

I checked the .htaccess but did not find anything specific. But my .htaccess code is below.

Options All -Indexes

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} GET
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} [a-zA-Z0-9_]=http:// [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} [a-zA-Z0-9_]=(..//?)+ [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} [a-zA-Z0-9_]=/([a-z0-9_.]//?)+ [NC]
RewriteRule .* - [F]

<files wp-config.php>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</files>

<Files ~ "^.*.([Hh][Tt][AaPp])">
order allow,deny
deny from all
satisfy all
</Files>

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^author=([0-9]*)
RewriteRule .* - [F]
</IfModule>
