Allowing www. on discourse


(Trent) #1

Hey,

Trying to set my prefered domain on google webmasters and it won’t let me select anything until I add the www. version of my site:

Part of the process of setting a preferred domain is to verify that you own http://www.domain.com/. Please verify http://www.domain.com

Is there a setting to allow this? I only need it to verify on webmsters to then change my preffered domain to https:// domain.com/

Thanks

example.com and www.example.com are two different host names, so you’d either need to create a new DNS record to point to your existing server, or create a separate web server called www.

Regardless, this is less a matter of Discourse configuration and more of a DNS and/or hosting configuration issue.

Hey,

Yeah I figured it out. I forgot to add this eventually took a look and noticed I hadn’t added it. Thanks.
