so we connected our domain with HubSpot CMS. They only support SSL for subdomains, so when someone does not type in "www." they are prompted with a security warning. They told me I needed to set up a redirect through GoDaddy for it to always go to the root domain (https://example.com)?

In GoDaddy's forwarding section I see one that says "Domain" and the other says "Subdomain".

What do I type in each of these boxes so that my site goes to https://example.com no matter what someone types in?

    Godaddy's redirection services are horribly broken and don't support HTTPS. I'm not sure why they are suggesting Godaddy as a solution to your problem, because there is no way it will help. Commented Oct 6, 2020 at 9:42

    When you say "HubSpot CMS" do you mean "CMS Hub™" with pricing that starts at nearly $3000 per year? If so, that seems really expensive to not do HTTPS redirects for your bare domain and have such poor customer support. Commented Oct 6, 2020 at 9:49
  • You might be able to use CloudFlare if you are also willing to use them as a CDN for your site. CloudFlare does do HTTP to HTTPS redirects and handles the certificates for you. I know hot to set up their services for alternate domains for free. However, I think that using CloudFlare for your bare domain would also necessitate using them as a CDN for your www subdomain.
