#58222 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Upper case breaks WP home/url and no warning is given.

Description

Browsers (at least Safari, Firefox, Chrome) will request mysite.example.com when you enter mySite.example.com. Any upper case gets set to lower.

If you have a home url set like mySite.example.com for example your home page will be completely inaccessible with 301 redirect to itself as browsers turn the upper case to lower case. It seems like that should be lower-cased for subdomains.
