Root domain nor redirecting to "www" like it should

Hi everyone!

I’m hosting my website in Webflow and added my custom domain. I have set the “www” as the default because I’m familiar to the root domain issue in some DNS providers.

However, my A records are configured as should be, but when I try to access my website using the root domain, the redirect doesn’t happen.

My SSL is activated but I don’t think that this is the problem because I’m not using the root domain as default. I’m using AWS Route 53 as my DNS provider.

Hello @pedrogandra and @Drew_Schafer , I’m having the exact same issue.
Is there a solution for it? I just filed a custom support at Webflow and AWS Route 53. If I got any update, I will share here as well.

Hey @Rosie_Way Try removing the @ and just leaving that blank. Some DNS providers require you add @ to indicate that it is on the root domain, while others you just need to leave blank.

Let me know if that works.

Hi @Drew_Schafer thanks for the tips! I already updated my domain to Webflow successfully :slight_smile: you’re right, just left the name place blank; while also add the value in the same record. It just worked!
