Forwarding secure (https) non-www to www domain

I've run into a little hitch setting up domain forwarding. I'm trying to get all my traffic to be on the "www" subdomain and on "https" (secure) protocol. To accomplish that, I've got GoDaddy forwarding on the domain set up to forward to


When I visit, I'm successfully forwarded to

But when I visit, Chrome says the server "refused to connect"


Where should I start trying to troubleshoot this? How can I tell if GoDaddy is forwarding and the issue is my server? How can I tell if GoDaddy forwarding isn't even happening?


Any insight would be much appreciated!
