This post presents the snippet from the Nginx configuration that redirects all request to https://www.bookmarks.dev:

# redirect HTTP to www
server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server;
    server_name bookmarks.dev www.bookmarks.dev;

    return 301 https://www.bookmarks.dev$request_uri;
}

# redirect HTTPS to wwww
server {
    listen 443;
    server_name bookmarks.dev;

    return 301 https://www.bookmarks.dev$request_uri;
}

Note the missing www.bookmarks.dev in the second server/server_name entry, to avoid an infinite loop

Lots of other good Nginx resources can be found if you search for the nginx tag on codingmarks: https://www.bookmarks.dev?q=[nginx]
