I have a simple static website deployed to App platform.
The application has two domains attached: my-app.com and www.my-app.com
Both of them work well, however, I would like to setup a redirect of the www domain to non-www with 301 status code.
How can I configure this, please?
Thank you, Peter

If your domain nameserver record is pointing to DigitalOcean nameserver then you have to update the CNAME record in DigitalOcean cloud panel. you can follow below documentation link to add the CNAME record:
It will take 1-12 hours to propagate the changes then the subdomain should be resolving to the given hostname ( example: portfolio-12345.ondigitalocean.app)
Note that not all DNS providers support this method for root domains, known as CNAME flattening or using an ANAME or ALIAS record. I believe that GoDaddy does not support this yet.
What you could do instead, is to switch your DNS management to DigitalOcean:
That way when you add your non-www domain name to your App Platform, it will automatically take care of the DNS records for you.
Let me know if you have any questions!
