I am not running a webserver, and I simply want to redirect x.mysite.com to a Calendly link. I did this using the Host records - I set it up so x.mysite.com redirects to Calendly.com/mycalendly. However, this used to work but now is broken.
After some diagnosis, I noticed that if I input x.mysite.com into the web browser manually, the redirect works. and if I click on any link that contains x.mysite.com - it does not work. The underlying issue seems to be when a link is clicked, it assumes its a https link, which the redirect fails whereas if I manually type in the URL, it checks for both HTTP and HTTPS and it will use HTTP URL redirect, which works.
What is the solution to this issue?
