Question

How to point non-www domain to www

Hello,

I have a Rails app deployed to the DO App Platform and I added my custom domain and pointed the name servers to DO. But the problem is that I want any requests coming to mydomain.com to be redirected to www.mydomain.com, and I already configured the app to handle this 301 redirect. But I still couldn’t get this to work.

I’m aware that there are many other posts about this problem but none of them helped me. Any ideas?
