Question

redirecting root domain to www (App platform)

I’m hosting a website on the new App Platform and i want to run the website on www.mydomain.com. I’ve added that in my App settings and it works.

Now I want to redirect all requests on my root domain (mydomain.com) to www.mydomain.com.

Is that possible ?

I’m using redirect.pizza until DO builds this in. Simple and free. Keeps me from having to launch another app or fork out $30/mo to DNSimple for https redirects. Of course, there is also Cloudflare.

Hi @encantairaq7, this is a planned feature but it is not available yet. For now you will need to update your app to perform this redirect if it is needed.
