I have a site I’m setting up on Google App Engine. App Engine will let me do that for a subdomain, but not for a whole domain. So I can use www.mydomain.com, but not mydomain.com, for my App Engine site. Google suggests forwarding mydomain.com to www.mydomain.com, which sounds good to me.
- I want mydomain.com to redirect to www.mydomain.com, and
- I want www.mydomain.com to refer to Google App Engine.
#1 is doable if my domain is Fully Hosted, since there’s a radio button for that. But #2 is not doable because I can’t add a CNAME record to redirect www to Google. This is because www already has a DNS record that is locked down by the Full Hosting option.
#2 is doable if my domain is Google Hosted, because www is not locked down in DNS and I can add the CNAME record just fine. But I don’t see any way to accomplish #1.
Any ideas? I don’t want to go find another host, because I’ve generally had a great experience here.
