00:04

it’s Irina Z and in this video I’m going

00:06

to show you how to set up your cname

00:08

record within Namecheap and also how to

00:10

set up the URL redirect in Namecheap now

00:13

you would do this if you were adding

00:15

your name cheap domain to be used inside

00:17

of clickfunnels

00:18

now in this case you would be using the

00:21

www version of your domain and we’ll go

00:24

ahead and begin by going over to the

00:27

domain list on your left hand side menu

00:30

once you are in this screen right here

00:33

what you’ll be able to do is select the

00:34

domain that you want to use inside of

00:36

clickfunnels

00:36

and simply just click manage next to

00:39

that domain so in this account we only

00:41

have one domain but we’ll go ahead and

00:42

select manage which will take us to the

00:47

next screen and in this screen you’ll be

00:49

selecting advanced DNS settings now

00:55

it’ll probably look something like this

00:57

on your end unless you have some MX or

00:59

txt records already added to this domain

01:02

but if you have just purchased this

01:04

domain you’re setting it up from scratch

01:06

this is what it would look like and what

01:08

we’re gonna do is set up a cname record

01:10

for your domain it’s gonna be a www

01:13

record as you can see right now it’s set

01:15

to parked at Namecheap so we’re going to

01:17

want to go ahead and change that so what

01:19

we can do is go ahead and add a new

01:21

record and then we’ll go ahead and

01:24

remove this one that’s in there right

01:25

now afterwards so I’ll go ahead and

01:27

click add new record and it’s going to

01:29

be a cname record so I’ll click cname

01:31

record from the drop down for the host

01:33

I’m going to enter www that’s going to

01:35

be the version of the domain we’re going

01:37

to be adding to clickfunnels and then

01:39

for the target value I’m going to enter

01:42

target dot clickfunnels comm and for the

01:47

TTL I’m going to keep it at automatic

01:50

and then go ahead and check Save Changes

01:51

with this little green check mark right

01:53

here now as you can see we have two

01:56

cname records right here so we’re gonna

01:57

want to go ahead and remove this parking

01:59

page for Namecheap so we’ll just go

02:02

ahead and click the trash icon next to

02:05

it and now the records look something

02:07

like this so you have a cname record for

02:09

the host WW for the value target

02:12

clickfunnels

02:13

calm and the TTL is automatic the next

02:16

thing you’ll do is set up the forwarding

02:18

rule so what this means is if somebody

02:21

visits your domain without the www in

02:23

front of it they’ll still be directed to

02:26

the domain that’s in your clickfunnels

02:27

account which is the www version so

02:30

we’ll go ahead and select add new record

02:33

and you’ll scroll down right here and

02:35

select the URL redirect record for the

02:39

host will enter the @ symbol and for the

02:41

destination URL we’ll go ahead and enter

02:43

HTTP the coulomb two forward slashes

02:48

ww your domain so for this example we’ll

02:53

go ahead and answer the domain we’re

02:55

using and for the drop down we’ll go

02:58

ahead and select permanent 301 and we’ll

03:01

go ahead and click Save Changes this

03:02

little green check mark now keep in mind

03:04

that after you’ve set this up it could

03:06

take up to 72 hours for the records to

03:10

go ahead and spread through the internet

03:12

or it could take several minutes so if

03:14

your domain is not instantly verified

03:16

inside of clickfunnels is due to the

03:18

fact that they’re still propagating the

03:20

records and it just takes some time for

03:22

it to go ahead and spread through the

03:25

internet once you have completed the

03:27

step you’ll head over to your

03:29

clickfunnels account you’ll add the www

03:31

version of your domain in here if it’s

03:34

not instantly verified not to worry you

03:37

could just take some time for it to go

03:39

ahead and to go ahead and propagate

03:41

through the Internet

03:42

now if you run into any trouble with

03:43

this please reach out to our support

03:45

team and they would be more than happy

03:46

to help thanks so much
