I have a site where the apex is handled at aws route53 using a cloudfront distribution. This apex is already redirecting traffic to the www.
However, when I add the www custom subdomain on netlify, it wants to also use take control of the apex and wants me to implement Netlify DNS or gives errors that my apex A record has multiple entries (this is due to how route53 handles the apex). I don’t want Netlify to host my DNS, nor do I want it to touch my apex. I just want it to handle the www domain. Is there a way to allow me to use just the www cname. There is nothing in DNS that prevents this from happening, as far as I know; it seems to be a Netlify specific rule.
The site in question is swanbitcoin.com. I currently have the www routed elsewhere (to unbounce) because whenever I route it to netlify, it fails to provision SSL due to the apex handling. I want to only have a www certificate. It works for any other subdomain, just not www.
