There is only 1 site.

The hoster is suggesting I set up a subdomain on GoDaddy instead os using
an "A" record. Then I can point it to the secure site.

Seem reasonable? Downside?

Sure, a subdomain redirect is perfectly reasonable.

I do this for some of my domains ... if you visit http://ridewithdavid.com it will redirect you to https://rwd.diabetessucks.net. This is handled automatically by Google Domains.

The only downside is it's harder to get SSL on the initial domain. In my example, you can't go to https://ridewithdavid.com because Google doesn't offer SSL redirects. If I wanted to, I could setup my own redirect with a LetsEncrypt certificate ... but I'm lazy. :)
