GitHub Pages can now automatically secure the www variant of your custom domain

When configuring a custom domain for your GitHub Pages site, we will now automatically request a certificate for both the Apex and www subdomain of that custom domain if DNS is configured appropriately. As part of this, we've also moved the GitHub Pages settings to their own dedicated tab and refreshed the setup flow to help you get everything set up with ease.

If you don't want to use both domains with GitHub Pages, we'll continue requesting a certificate for only the specific domain you configure. Custom domains that use a subdomain other than www are not affected by this change.
