Hi @digitaldev,

Using DNS for a HTTP redirection is not possible with just DNS. There are companies providing DNS forwarding though.

As for the Nginx rules, now that’s possible.

You can server_name which supports suffix matches using syntax:

server {
  rewrite ^$request_uri? permanent;
or on any version 0.9.1 or higher:

server {
  return 301$request_uri;
