where is the case of a URL defined? how do I ensure it is mixed case and not all lower case?

Either name is valid.  Whatever you type into your web browser should stay

If you type a directory name without the trailing slash so that the web
server sends back a redirect, then it's a question of the configuration of
the web server how it spells the hostname when it returns the redirection URL.
But it doesn't typically get this from DNS... at least, Apache doesn't.

But I don't see any subdirectories in your web pages so this won't come up

Perhaps you are clicking on some other link which spells it in lower-case.

Or perhaps you are typing it in in lower case to your web browser and
expecting it to change.  This doesn't happen.
