Below you will find the video walkthrough and step-by-step instructions for setting up your custom domain with DropFunnels.
Follow these instructions in the exact order listed below in order for your DNS to properly connect to DropFunnels.
Connect Domain with DropFunnels
Step 1: In the back office of DropFunnels, head over to the Marketing > Integrations > Domain page.
Step 2: Copy the IP Address seen below (184.108.40.206).
Step 3: Head over to your domain registrar (where you purchased your domain). You want to find your DNS settings/manager.
Step 4: Add an A record in your DNS settings by inputting the follow:
NOTE: Your page may look slightly different than the example below.
Click the Add button.
IMPORTANT! Once you hit the Add button above in your DNS manager, it will typically take 5-10 minutes to propagate, depending on your domain registrar. Some may take longer. You MUST wait until this propagates.
Use this DNS Checker to monitor the progress. Simply input your domain, select A and hit the Search button. Once you start to see the DropFunnels IP address showing up (220.127.116.11) in the different locations, you can proceed to the Step 5 below.
Step 5: Back in DropFunnels, on the Marketing > Integrations > Domain page, input your domain (without the www) and hit the Set Custom Domain button.
If you are receiving an error after clicking the Set Custom Domain button, please wait 5-10 minute and try again.
Step 6: When successfully setup, you will be taken to a landing page while your website is completing the setup. This typically takes less than 5 minutes.
Once completed, you will then login to your DropFunnels back office using the following URL: yourdomain.com/login
Setting up Cloudflare
Step 7: Create a free Cloudflare account here (if you have an existing Cloudflare account, move to the next step).
Step 8: On the Home page of Cloudflare, click the Add a Site button.
Step 9: Type in your domain, yourdomain.com (without the www) and hit Add Site.
Step 10: Select the Free plan and click Confirm Plan.
Step 11: Add a CNAME record inside the Cloudflare DNS settings by using the following inputs and hit Add Record.
Step 12: Add another CNAME record by using the following inputs and hit Add Record.
NOTE: Delete any A records that you see in your Cloudflare account for your domain.
Step 13: Click Continue
This will take you to the Change your nameservers page. Keep this Cloudflare page open.
The next few steps are going to walk you through updating your DNS nameservers. In this example we are going to be using GoDaddy. This is the same process no matter what registrar, the only difference is the interface and where your DNS Management is located.
Step 14: Change your nameservers by selecting I’ll use my own nameservers.
Step 15: Copy and Paste both Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2 from Cloudflare, into your domain registrar (in this case, GoDaddy), then hit Save.
This step can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 24 hours, depending on the registrar. Please be patient and wait a full 24 hours before reaching out to support. In most instances, it will resolve itself.
Step 16: Click on the Page Rules at the top of the Cloudflare dashboard. Proceed to click on the Create Page Rule button.
Step 17: Type/Select the following information (using your own domain).
Then the settings are:
301 – Permanent Redirect
Step 18: Click Save and Deploy
IMPORTANT: In order to login to your DropFunnels back office, you will now access it by typing your own domain, like this:
https://yourdomain.com/login NOT https://yoursubdomain.dropfunnels.com
