Why is automatically redirected to

In order to enable the static assets of your website site to be served by a CDN (Cloudflare), the DNS entries of your domain have to be of type 'CNAME'. Unfortunately, the root entry of a DNS zone cannot be a 'CNAME' (it must be an 'A' entry). That is why we automatically redirect the root domain '' to ''. Also note that the SSL certificate is provided fo subdomains only and is not available for the root domain.

If you want to avoid the redirection or have an SSL certificate on the root domain, you will have to transfer the DNS management to T3Gardens.

There is no limit. As many custom domains as you want can point to your website. Simply open a support ticket for adding a new custom domain.

How can I enable SSL on the root domain?
