Hello ! I just installed and finished up my server yesterday! I bought a Domain at and also did change the DNS Nameservers! My domain name works fine, but not with the www.

I did ofcourse not change the “A” Record IP of the Domain that points to @ in Godaddy!

And in the CNAME there is already www added that points to @. So that looks fine. Right now there has passed more than 24 hours and my domain does not react when I add the www infront! If I could get some help or advice how to fix this I will be appereciated !

Thank you very much in advance!

It shouldn’t redirect by default, is your app causing the redirect?

Thanks for the reply, it resolves now and redirect to Do you know how to do it without redirect, so when user types it stays with www. without redirection?
