How to add a Forwarder to your Custom Domain
When setting up your custom domain, you will want to make sure that no matter if the www. is entered or not, your site will always be the endpoint. To ensure this happens, you will need to add a Forwarder to your Domain through the registrar that you are using to host your domain such as Bluehost, HostGator, Google Domains, or GoDaddy. Each of these hosts has their own flow for doing this, so depending on your host your setup may slightly differ.
