Possibly this is a redirect configured in your CPanel. If it’s not in the .htaccess I would look on the server configuration level.October 8, 2018 at 5:57 am #135214

long redirect times are often caused by your hosting provider. You can try to enable the ‘301 .htaccess redirect’ option in the plugin settings. The .htaccess redirect is generally the fastest redirect option and should improve the redirect speed. If that doesn’t improve your sites loading speed, you can contact your hosting provider about this issue.
Having a redirect chain from http://www, https://www to https:// is not an issue. If users come in via the http:// domain there will only be one redirect to https://. You can set a preferred domain without in Google Webmaster Tools/Search Console. This will make sure that incoming organic traffic will be taken straight from the http:// to the https:// domain.

your redirect chain is normal and nothing to worry about. Really Simple SSL will redirect the first requests to https://, from http://www to https://www and then WordPress will redirect to the site address, which is https:// in this case. Visitors coming in on the non-www domain will be redirected to the https:// domain directly.
