.APP Forwarding Issues

Hello, 

 

I own a .APP domain with Godaddy. 

 

I am facing issues in setting Domain Forwarding. 

 

I have set the domain to be forwarded to a particular URL in the DNS settings, but forwarding is just not happening. 

 

I am not facing this issue with other extensions - org, net , com. 

 

Is this a known issue with .APP extension? 

 

Is GoDaddy doing anything about it ? 

 

Thanks

Ishan

Hi @ikumar. The issue you're seeing is likely due to the fact that .app domains are sometimes redirected to HTTPS automatically. This is because they are expected to have HTTPS by the browser since they come with free SSL (per the domain registry). However, our forwarding service will not accept HTTPS requests at this time. Therefore, I'd suggest using a different redirect solution if you need to get your .app domain to point to another URL. Hope that helps.

Hey there @ikumar,

 

Thanks for posting. You should be able to forward your domain following these steps: https://www.godaddy.com/help/forward-a-domain-12123. Are you following these steps and getting an error? Feel free to provide more information. Others in the community may be able to provide you with additional suggestions.

Article is outdated. I've contacted support via phone and they were not helpful, said there was nothing they could do.
