the-christmas-game.com is fully hosted, but I have actually moved the website to Shopify, with a single subdomain remaining hosted a dreamhost.
So I have a bare A record pointing to shopify, and a CNAME record for “store” pointing to shopify.
The panel is set to remove the www and redirect to the-christmas-game.com.
I last changed the panel a week ago, so there’s been plenty of time for the settings to propagate.
Sometimes I get stuck in an infinite redirect loop, sometimes I don’t. Different browsers, different computers, different times of day generate different results. One browser will loop while another doesn’t, simultaneously.
Other configurations I have tried include “leave the www alone so they both work,” with a CNAME record for www pointing to Shopify, but that also generated loops.
I can’t guess why it would be intermittent a week later.
What is the right way to do this? It would be okay to end “fully hosted” and host only the domain, pointing to shopify, and abandon the hosted subdomain, but I’m not sure how to do that either.
