Site not forwarding if www left off

Team: the Cloudflare support ticket system is not working properly and this seems like such a minor issue. my website will not automatically forward if a first time visitor leaves off the www. the site was moved to Cloudflare from godaddy. any tips?

Do you have a DNS entry for WWW in your DNS settings?

Do you have a page rule to automatically redirect requests for www to the root?

Sad. my first attempt to get some help on a simple issue for my site (a whopping 1 month customer) and even the support ticket page wouldn’t work!!! this is a desperate attempt to get some response from Cloudflare, as every time I tried to submit a ticket on this the site wanted more details and then wouldn’t allow it to be submitted.

There is a way to make a redirection from non-www to www, or vice-versa.
