I can redirect HTTP traffic to my www domain using forwarding. Alternatively I can redirect HTTPS traffic to my www domain using forwarding. What I don't seem to be able to find a way of doing in GoDaddy is redirecting anything pointed at the naked / apex domain to the www version. I need to redirect both HTTP and HTTPS traffic to www.
I need to support the following...
I have called support but the person I spoke to didn't seem to have a clue about what was possible and wasn't. I was told initially I needed an SSL certificate (not true as I could get one working and not the other at the same time). I was also told it was a problem with my hosting provider (not true as it doesn't get that far). The person I spoke to had to check with colleagues about 4 or 5 times and I gave up in the end.
I am not using a web server with which I can do any URL writing and I do not have a fixed IP. I am trying to set up sites behind CloudFront. I'm looking to have the changes / redirecting happen before getting anywhere near the hosting provider (AWS).
There must be a way to support this. Is anyone else more in the know?
Thanks for any help.
Thanks for posting. You will need to confirm that you have issued a SSL certtficate that is covering WWW, if there is not an SSL certifcate issue for www you will not be able to foward to HTTPS://www. Hope that helps!
I do have an SSL certificate set up but this is with my hosting provider for when the request makes it that far.
I don't believe this is part of the issue as it does not get as far as I my hosting provider and it will work if I use HTTPS, it just cannot be made to work for both HTTP and HTTPS at the same time.
Is there anyone out there that actually knows the answer to this?
