I have used code backticks around some of the content of this post to try to avoid the restriction to include ‘only include 6 links’. I don’t want them to be links.
My Netlify site is
I own the domain
The registrar is TSOHOST
The DNS is managed at TSOHOST
TSOHOST has made a CNAME for www and pointed it to
TSOHOST has also made a redirect from

Redirects automatically to primary domain

But then I realised that I should have instead added
www.robwakeman.com which is recommended by Netlify

www.robwakeman.com because this subdomain points via a CNAME record at TSOHOST to
Do I need to remove
robwakeman.com (the apex domain)? Or is ok to just leave it there? It seems effectively redundant.
If so, I can see there is an option to ‘Remove domain’ for
www.robwakeman.com but there is no equivalent option to ‘Remove domain’ for
