I'd like to forward the "www" subdomain to the top level domain. For example, going to www.foo.com should redirect to foo.com.
I feel like this has been asked a thousand times for the opposite direction; that is redirecting TO www. I want to redirect FROM www to my base domain.
The crazy thing to me is that I can get ANY OTHER subdomain to work. I can make a subdomain of bar.foo.com and redirect it to foo.com just fine. Something seems "special" with www which is causing this to not work right.
P.S. What really blows my mind is I've been on the phone with customer support for a full hour and they have given up on me. The guy I'm talking with has said that they don't understand how to make it work, it's up to me to make it work on my own, and that they've exhausted all their resources on their side. I asked for Tier 2 support or escalate to the engineers or literally anyone else that might know and I was told that that wasn't possible. What??? Clearly www is special somehow given that literally any other subdomain I add will work as advertised. I referenced this article and haven't gotten it to work. I asked customer support about the note about the "Required A record" pointing at some magical IP and they didn't know what it was for. I feel really let down. I love GoDaddy but wow the support is lacking big time.
