To redirect your www subdomain to your domain apex:

  1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account.
  2. Go to Bulk Redirects.
  3. Create a bulk redirect list modeled after the following (but replacing the values as appropriate):

  • Preserve query string
  • Subpath matching
  • Preserve path suffix
  • Include subdomains
  1. Create a bulk redirect rule using the list you just created.
  2. Go to DNS.
  3. Create a DNS record for the www subdomain using the following values:

It may take a moment for this DNS change to propagate, but once complete, you can run the following command in your terminal.

$ curl --head -i
