I would like to set up my web app to use the www subdomain as my primary url. I’ll be using a separate service to handle 301 redirects from apex domain to www subdomain (example.com -> www.example.com). What is the correct way to set up the DNS records for my www subdomain? Should my subdomain have “A” and “AAAA” records pointing to the IP address set up for my naked/apex domain? Or should my subdomain be a “CNAME” pointing to the starter domain generated by my app? (ex. example.test.ondigialocean.app)
