I'm using a "synthetic record" at Google Domains to redirect traffic from the bare domain
This works for requests to
http://example.com, of which there are 4 A records that all point to Google Apps IP addresses (makes sense, that's how they handle "synthetic records" for a host name that you haven't mapped to an A record). The response to such requests is:
HTTP/1.1 302 Found Location: http://www.example.com Date: Wed, 30 Sep 2015 17:08:59 GMT Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 Server: ghs Content-Length: 230 X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
However, requests to
https://example.com are completely ignored. There is no response from the server. Has anyone else run into this limitation with Google's implementation of redirecting a bare domain to a subdomain? Any advice for getting around this without having my own A record at the apex?
