I want to use Cloudflare on a few websites, one of which has a subdomain:
Instead of paying for the certificate, I’d rather update my subdomain site to https://portal.example.org. I don’t see any way to do this without Cloudflare breaking though.
My problem is that many people have the site in their favorites with the www included (https://www.portal.example.org). Even if I update my webserver config to force the URL to https://portal.example.org, it is going to give them an cipher match error before my webserver can remove the www.
Besides posting a message to my users asking them to update their favorites after I remove the www on the webserver, what are my options? I’ve tried page rules “Forwarding URL,” and that didn’t work either.
