If your domain registrar is not supported by Entri or if it cannot be added automatically for any other reason, you might want to check this guide.

This article will guide you step by step on how to connect an external domain using the Manual method.

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.

  2. Enter the existing domain in the blank field and click continue.

    Note: Be sure to include the subdomain at the beginning.

  3. Once the domain registrar information populates, click the Add Domain button.

  4. To manually add the records, click on the Clicking here link.

  5. A DNS records area will show; click on Show DNS table.

  6. You will be provided a TXT record that needs to be added to your domain registrar.

  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.

  12. You will be given two other records to add to your domain registrar.

  13. This is how the TXT and CNAME records should be added.

     

  14. Back on your ClickFunnels account, click on Check connection.

  15. You will see a confirmation message saying Connection was verified. That means that the domain was successfully added.
