Domains : How to Connect an Existing Sub Domain

Tim P.

In this article, we will cover how to connect an existing sub domain to ClickFunnels.

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

  • A ClickFunnels account

  • An existing domain from a 3rd party registrar

Step by Step Walk Through:

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

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

    Note: A subdomain will include the word you wish to use before the root domain. In the example below, the word Sales was used to create the subdomain. When creating the subdomain, be sure to not include www as that would act as a subdomain itself and cause errors.

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

  4. Click on the Start Domain Setup button.

    Important: The Optional setting below is a redirect setting that will redirect your root domain to your subdomain. If you are using your root domain somewhere else, you need to disable the redirect by toggling it off. If not, it will ruin your root domain.

  5. A window will open confirming that ClickFunnels uses a 3rd party tool called Entri to configure domains. Click the Continue button.

  6. A window confirming the domain’s registrar will appear. To proceed, click the authorize button.

  7. The new DNS records that are being added to the registrar will be displayed. Click the authorize button to continue.

  8. Click the Done button once the sub domain configuration has been confirmed.

  9. The sub domain will now show as connected to confirm a successful connection.

  10. Note: On some occasions, the domain status will show as "securing." Please allow up to 48 hours for the securing process to finish.

  11. Congratulations! You now know how to connect an existing sub domain in ClickFunnels.
