This whole conversation has been very helpful, because it’s got me thinking about what we can do to make this transition a net positive for everyone. Faster loads, easier configurations, less time waiting for help with your configuration, etc.
In particular, since most registrars support bare-domain to www redirects (the equivalent of writing a very short .htaccess rule), most users across bubble won’t even need to concern themselves with ALIAS record types. The challenge here is, how do we most effectively communicate this to the Bubble community?
We also knew there would be demand for bare domain records of the type you desire, which is why we have come up with the options we have to support users like you and @sudsy. But since ALIAS and ANAME records are so uncommon, and bare domains only support A records for reasons that go back to the dawn of time, the question we need to answer here is how can we effectively serve your needs, too?
The best solution I have right now for you is, when the time comes, move your DNS to Cloudflare’s free tier. They have the best user interface for these things I’ve seen, and they have hacked DNS in a way that works how most internet users expect.
