I am new to render and was wondering how to configure the following scenario: suppose I have example . com, www . example . com, and blog . example . com. I would like to have the first two (apex and www…) redirect to blog… I have not been able to work out yet how to nominate a single custom domain as the canonical one though I have to say I have not tested the various combinations yet (DNS caching makes changes time-consuming to evaluate). I do not want the content delivered on the other domains but a HTTP redirect (ideally with http to https redirects done implicitly).
Based on the documentation and the various settings on the dashboard, the only solution I could work out is to have a dummy project for the apex and the www… sub-domain and configure only wildcard redirects to blog… That would involve the additional implicit redirect apex → www (on the dummy project) but might work as a chain apex → www → blog and www → blog depending on where the user starts.
Have I missed anything in terms of alternatives for easier configuration of multiple aliases?
PS I have already up-voted the domain-level redirect feature request, which may solve (part of) the problem.
PPS I had to add spaces to domain names as the forum software complained about too many links. Please disregard those.
