Domain forwarding from naked domain not working

0

I'm using AWS Amplify to host my website. I'm not using Route 53 or any other AWS services. My website can be addressed by "https://www.heat-consulting.co.uk" but not "https://heat-consulting.co.uk". I have set up domain management as shown in the attached screenshot. How do I enable the website to be accessed by "https://heat-consulting.co.uk"? Domain Management Settings Screenshot

You don't have a root record for heat-consulting.co.uk. Please check this example link. https://support.dnsimple.com/articles/common-dns-records/#1-root-domain-examplecom

You can update it in your DNS settings, wherever the zone record is hosted. Here is what its resolving right now. www.heat-consulting.co.uk, looks OK but not for heat-consulting.co.uk

nslookup www.heat-consulting.co.uk

Address:  192.168.86.1

Hello!

I probed the DNS records for www.consulting.co.uk and consulting.co.uk

$ host heat-consulting.co.uk 
heat-consulting.co.uk has address 94.136.40.82
heat-consulting.co.uk mail is handled by 10 mx0.123-reg.co.uk.
heat-consulting.co.uk mail is handled by 20 mx1.123-reg.co.uk.
$ host www.heat-consulting.co.uk 
www.heat-consulting.co.uk is an alias for d15u997s7fbj2e.cloudfront.net.
d15u997s7fbj2e.cloudfront.net has address 99.84.208.105
d15u997s7fbj2e.cloudfront.net has address 99.84.208.102
d15u997s7fbj2e.cloudfront.net has address 99.84.208.3
d15u997s7fbj2e.cloudfront.net has address 99.84.208.56

The root domain heat-consulting.co.uk is not pointing to AWS Amplify. You should configure the root domain to point to your AWS Amplify hosted application and then add the other sub-domains (i.e.: www.heat-consulting.co.uk)

The following documentation outlines the steps you need to follow to configure the root domain: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/amplify/latest/userguide/to-add-a-custom-domain-managed-by-a-third-party-dns-provider.html
