return 301 $scheme://happy.example.com$request_uri;
If happy.example.com is configured in nginx to use happy.com as another domain then you will just need your client to point their domain name to your server’s IP address or create a CNAME record to point it to happy.example.com.
Basically, on your end you’ll want to modify the line in your server block (in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/) from:
server_name happy.example.com happy.com;
Then restart nginx with service nginx restart
service nginx restart
Your server will now be ready to accept requests for happy.com once your client’s DNS is updated.
