Alejandra C

This article will help you connect an external domain using the Manual method. 

If your domain registrar is not supported by Entri or cannot be added Automatically for any other reason, you should check this guide.


 


Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:

  • A ClickFunnels account
  • An external domain

Manually adding an external domain

  1. From the Site & Funnels menu, select Domains and click on the Connect Existing Domain button.

  7. Inside your domain registrar, create a TXT record. For the Host, add an @, and for Value, add the text provided in the DNS table.

    Important note: We are using Namecheap as a Domain registrar for this example.
  8. Once you have added the TXT record, go back to ClickFunnels and click on Validate Ownership.

  9. DNS records can take up to 48 to propagate and validate. After this step, we will need to wait for the information to update.
  10. Once the ownership of the domain has been verified, the domain status will change to Securing. (SSL can take up to 48 hours to complete)
  11. Click on Show DNS table.
