My Wordpress Home and Site URL are set to https://www.resurrectedhair.com
I have installed a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate on my origin server under resurrectedhair.com and www.resurrectedhair.com. I disabled (commented) the redirect https permanent syntax in my apache virtual hosts file as well as HSTS.
However, if I use the sub domain www.resurrectedhair.com there’s only one redirect.
Is this normal?
For the life of me, I am really confused on what domain name I should use when I conduct any online security, SEO, or speed test. For example, if I have this setting enabled, to prevent further confusion/false positives, using Pingdom, do I use www.resurrectedhair.com or resurrectedhair.com?
Also, based on my configuration, if someone types resurrectedhair.com he/she will be redirected to www.resurrectedhair.com. What kind of an affect does this behavior have on SEO, Google indexing, etc.? Would I be penalized as having two 301 redirects if someone types resurrectedhair.com to be redirected to www.resurrectedhair.com?
Lastly, what domain name should I add to the Google Search console here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/home?hl=en. I am thinking since my WordPress site is named under www.resurrectedhair.com, that’s the name I should use with a preface of https.
Thank you so much for looking into my questions. This definitely means a ton!
All my best,
