I am working on finalizing a client site and, for the first time, need to set up SSL hosting. I plugged in the following records on NameCheap as advised here in a webflow article:
Webflow has provided this resource for setting up SSL, but I am really struggling here. Please help, if you can!
Delete all records except first two. Wait 72 hours.
Thanks for the response. Will this result in the page showing [Secure] in the URL nav?
Hi @ctrav - doesn’t your CNAME Record need to be proxy-ssl.webflow.com…? As advised here:
Thanks for this tip. Huge help. I’ve added the CNAME as you advised and will wait for the domain to propagate, then I will update you.
Wow, here we go - already propagated!
For anyone else reading this thread who needs help with SSL on Namecheap (or other DNS provider):
These are my domain settings within Namecheap:
And these are my domain settings within Webflow:
@samliew actually you are required to have a CNAME record of
proxy-ssl.webflow.com for your sub domains (www, and any others), and A Records for your root domain of
184.108.40.206. As those A Records ensure that your root domain traffic gets re-directed to your
www sub domain on SSL hosting.
Unless you’re using a third party DNS provider which supports CNAME flattening (serving the root domain over SSL), you’ll need to use the setup above for SSL hosting for a Webflow hosted site.
