Namecheap CNAME Record




  • Miriam Jacobs

    First of all, the videos do not allow me to pause, and since I cannot do this as quickly as you do I have to keep watching the look over and over again. Also: the screen is so little that I can only see what you are doing if it is large, and this does not allow me to have the instructions and my doc open at the same time so I have to keep having to do multiple steps just to go back and forth. Thirdly, after I finally did it all, I am still no further cause it still does not work. Fourthly: you keep using abbreviations which mean nothing to me such as 'SSL certificate'. I don't care if this is all in Swahili, but it also does not allow me to have any idea of what I am doing, why I need to do it, or how it all fits in, which parts fit where. 

    Dear Russel Brunson: if you want to 10X your business, then make a simple version of all this, all-inclusive, without forcing us to either get a certificate in your business or hire somebody who does. I have a good idea, I understand what a funnel is and does and how much you have put into it, but the mystery maze that I have to go through in order to set this up is absurd. You are losing all the business from people like me ... I have been in this place before and gave up. I am back, reluctantly, but with my back against the wall, otherwise, I would give up again.

    I'm with Miriam Jacobs.  Very insightful message.  Please Russell and team...slow down and take a breath.  You sell the simplicity in the sales videos, but when you get inside it's very complex to set up.  I have 30+ years of IT experience and this is not a walk in the park for me.  I can only imagine a non-technical person trying to set this up.

    You have gone to great lengths to set this training up, but it is virtually useless to the average person. The videos don't have controls on them and you can't pause them making them unusable.

    I agree with these comments as I struggle and have been trying to get an answer to a question about my domain and just got sent to stuff I had already read and still did not get an answer.  And it's true the videos go too fast and it is hard to keep up for peeps like me who are really not tech savvy but want to learn to do this.  I have paid for about 3 months now and can't even get my domain verified with Clickfunnels let alone get a funnel working to try to get some income from it.  That's alot of NZ $ to go down the drain.  The first time I asked a question as I could not even get into my account after paying took 6 WEEKS to get answered due to 'experiencing high demand', so the first month and a half I paid but could not access my account.

    very frustrating.

    Followed these instructions and it didn't work. Namecheap support had me perform this step: 

    - having logged into Namecheap account, go to your Domain List -> click 'Manage' next to the domain -> 'Advanced DNS' tab -> 'Host Records' section.
    - Then click on 'Add New Record' and create the following record:

    Type: CNAME Record | Host: www | Value: | TTL: Automatic

    - click on the checkmark on the right to save the changes.

    It may take up to 30 minutes for the new settings to be accepted globally.




    Still didn't work - then I was poking around clickfunnels and went to Domains > and clicked verify on my domain. Then click within your domain and scroll down to SSL Certificate > Expand > Setup SSL Certificate.

    One minor note, on your redirects you will need to use this not as noted in the article. If you do not use the last "/" if you share a URL that is not the root funnel it will redirect the page to the root.


    for example if the user types in they will be redirected to, not

    This needs to be updated as namecheap has changed their site. 

    I had to go through the cPanel and go to "DNS Zone Editor" for the first step and then to ".com Redirects" for the second step.

    And both were completely different looking. 

    Was able to chat with someone from namecheap to walk me through it.
