I followed the instructions in Webflow’s How to Connect to a Custom Domain video and managed to change my A settings successfully.
But I can’t seem to alter my CNAME setting in a way that points my Webflow site to the domain name that I own (domain name registered through Wordpress).
On Wordpress, it’s showing a CNAME setting for *.okrabranding.com (with the asterisk) and I can’t edit this setting. I’ve added a new CNAME for home.okrabranding.com, because trying to add www.okrabranding.com only points it to www.www.okrabranding.com (wtf?).
So, right now, I’ve managed to point my Webflow site to this address: home.okrabranding.com, but I can’t get it to connect to www.okrabranding.com
Is there any way for me to connect my Webflow site to www.okrabranding.com?
What do I have to do in order for me to use www.okrabranding.com for my Webflow site?
Thank you all in advance
Have you fixed the domain pointing?
Yes the domain pointing has been fixed.
What I did was, I switched my registrar from Wordpress to GoDaddy. GoDaddy is more flexible with its DNS settings and I was able to do what I set out to do.
Awesome! Glad you got it. Take care.
Hi Gary, so is there a way to do what Okra_Branding was describing initially? Running into the exact problem right now… Thanks in advance!
Not sure about Wordpress, but if you’re wanting to use GoDaddy (which I use); then it’s best to purchase the domain on GoDaddy and close the domains from the Wordpress registrar.
It’s always best to cancel a domain on the current registrar and buy it again on another. I’ve tried many times to switch it with time left, but its a hassle. You should purchase the same domain again, it’ll cost a little extra but its still worth avoiding the hassle.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the quick response. I’m trying to cancel the domain from Wordpress, but since I bought the domain for a year, its saying that it’ll remain active till the year is up. Is there a way to get around this?
