Godaddy Domain Does Not redirect when you add https to it without www (Blogger Hosting)

Hello,

Please I bought a domain name with Godaddy and have hosted the domain with blogger and activated the blogger https. However the domain since activation have not been opening when searched with open https

My site opens very well with this https://www.myphoneprices.com or myphoneprices.com  and even http://myphoneprices.com

but does not open like this https://myphoneprices.com when you add https to it without www

The https://myphoneprices.com does not redirect to https://www.myphoneprices.com

making website to say not reached when searched. 

 

Please help me. What is the solution to this as it is frustration my experience with Godaddy.

Hi @Prestige324. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! Unfortunately, you won't be able to use our domain forwarding with HTTPS requests on your naked domain (myphoneprices.com). This is because HTTPS requires an SSL Certificate. SSL Certificates are issued to domains and installed on the server that the domain is pointed to. In the case of forwarding, there isn't a way to install an SSL Certificate for your domain to that server, so HTTPS will not work. We are looking at adding this as a feature in the future, but I'm not sure when or if that will come about. If you wish to use HTTPS for redirects of your naked domain to your Blogger account, you'll need to find a forwarding solution that allows HTTPS requests. Sorry Man Sad

I don't accept this answer Godaddy because majority of the blogger websites I have come across have https enabled through blogger and their https without www is redirecting very well to https://www. So why should my own be different. 

Do you really understand my problem?

https://myphoneprices.com is not redirecting to https://www.myphoneprices.com

Because of that am getting site down from adsense. Please tell me how to resolve this issue. I love using goddady. I don't want to regret buying my domain from godaddy

Hi @Prestige324. It looks like you've removed our domain forwarding and now your naked domain is pointed toward Google's DNS. The redirect is working for me now. If you're not experiencing the same, it may just be a matter of browser caching. However, if you continue having issues, I suggest contacting Google support as the domain is now fully pointed to their services. Glad you were able to figure something out Man Happy
