I have a CloudFront distribution setup and working correctly. I also have an SSL certificate issued using ACM.

My GoDaddy DNS has a CNAME entry for www which points to the cloudfront distribution

The following URLS work as expected and display the CloudFront distribution...


But this one does not..


It gives me a non-secure page error, looking further into it I can see that is it because the domain is actually the GoDaddy URL shortener shortener.secureserver.net which the SSL certificate does not recognise.

Anyone any idea how I can resolve? Can I create another CNAME entry for @?


No, you can’t CNAME your root domain name, and for that reason you should avoid using or promoting it. However, if you move your DNS to Cloudflare, they have a workaround for this.
