This isn't something the Debian website team can fix, please contact
the admin for each mirror individually.

That hostname is not a public Debian mirror and doesn't support https,
what gave you the impression it was?

The primary mirrors ftp.*.debian.org cannot support https because the
mirror team have to be able to repoint the domains at different
mirrors when one goes down.
The Debian mirror team don't keep track of https support for the
secondary mirrors so the website team cannot add information about
that to the website.
