My company has an enterprise account with root endpoint for the API. I would imagine some others have hosts like this as well. In fact, Github's manual refers to endpoints as http(s)://.

The minor tweak in the PR defaults to https: if not specified in the host argument, otherwise allowing something like


to work. Hope it helps!

This PR breaks the tests on linux and windows. I would suggest running the tests locally with devtools::test() and figuring out why this change breaks them, then update your code so it no longer does so.

Can't say it was easy (rtools is super finicky!), but I think I got all the tests to pass. Not sure what's failing in the AppVeyor tests though...
