https://ft.com both redirect to
http://www.ft.com. As ft.com is now mostly served over https, and we have custom vcl to redirect back to http where appropriate, I would like
http[s]://ft.com to redirect to
https://www.ft.com to save an additional roundtrip.
The redirect appears to happen before entering into our vcl as, when curling, none of our debug headers show up, so I guess it’s not something we can tackle within our vcl. I’m also nervous of using the force TLS option in the fastly dashboards because there are scenarios where we do wish to redirect back to http.
Is there some way I can configure fastly to redirect the root domain to https://www?
