A simple step by step Clickfunnelscustom domain setup…
I see it all the time “clickfunnels custom domain setup” people using clickfunnels are looking to have their own domain name pointing to their clickfunnel instead of having clickfunnels name in place of it. I find that people often become confused in this simple process of updating the DNS records. Although setting up your dns records can seem to be a trivial and confusing thing to do I believe the below demonstration provides a clear and easy way to accomplishing clickfunnels custom domain setup.
Clickfunnels custom domain setup is easy just follow this step by step guide
I will cover both a complete custom domain and a sub-domain. Both work the same except if you want to keep your registrar like Hostgator or for your top level domain, like and any websites, or blogs connected to it.
Step # 1 This 1st clickfunnels custom domain example will take less than 5 minutes and when you are done, you are done. So the 1st step I always start by doing is setting up the cloudflare. This is because you will go through a scan period, and during that time you can be doing other steps.
If you do not already have a cloudflare account. Cloudflare offers a free https for your domain.
Starting at cloudflare the 1st thing you want to do is enter your domain name.
Press Scan DNS records to complete this step-
Once the DNS records scanned the next page will show you the results of the scan.
Step #2 You probably do not need all the records for your clickfunnels custom domain setup it is extremely important when first starting out to only remove the A records pointing to your site. Both your www.domain.com and your www record.
Step #3 Clickfunnels does explain this but it around 4 paragraphs long. So here is the simple version of clickfunnels custom domain setup –
You need to add (2) CNAME Records
- 1 – CNAME @ POINTS TO target.clickfunnels.com
- 2- CNAME www POINTS TO target.clickfunnels.com
Select the Free Website Plan/CLICK CONTINUE
When you get to this screen, always click the recheck nameservers, This is not automatic. Plus it will refresh the cache and check the DNS fresh. (I had a client who in 3 days did not it past this screen because she was not aware she needed to click the box, so please save yourself the headache and click it)
Step #4 The Next Step is to add your new name servers to your hosting.
(Once you do this, it can take 24-48 hour for the change to take effect, though not likely. However, for some of my international clients, I have seen it take around 18 hours) You should still finish the process in the meantime.
Step #5 Once you are good to go you literally get a green light in cloudflare. There are just a few simple remaining steps to setting up clickfunnels domain
Step #6 Click on Create Page Rule and in this exact order
- 1st line www.yourdomain.com/*

Make sure that the “SLL is “Full”
