so I've set
www.mydomain.com to point to
ghs.google.com, which correctly loads my Google site, but if you go to
mydomain.com, it doesn't redirect/forward to
www.mydomain.com, it just hangs. is there a way to change this in the Godaddy DNS manager?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
It's not a DNS setting; you need to set up a redirect from
Its not subdomain at all. I am using domain forwarding. Just select forward of domain, not subdomain, and add www to it, and forward only, and it automatically adds the ip address in the A record of DNS in godaddy. If you are using cloudflare, do it in the dns settings on godaddy first and then add domain to cloudflare or if you are already using cloudflare, the delete domain off of cloudflare, and redo the dns and forwarding on godaddy, then rescan on cloudflare, if the dns settings do not show up from godaddy, then add them from godaddy by copying and pasting the settings over to cloudflare, and then add cloudflare nameservers over to godaddy.
If you arent using cloudflare, then just forward the domain non www to the forwarding of www under domain forwarding in godaddy as said at first, then wait and it will do it. I put an extra A record with * pointing to the forwarding ip address too, so you have two A records, one with * and other with @ pointing to ip address.
