What you will need: 

**Please note: Cloudflare is the only DNS provider that will allow you to use the root of your domain in ClickFunnels. Check out the steps below to learn how you can connect the root domain (domain.com) or the "www" subdomain (www.domain.com) to ClickFunnels. Bare in mind, if you have an existing website at your root/www, you will want to setup a subdomain instead.**

Step One: Adding Your Root Domain (without WWW)

**Please note: if you prefer to connect your domain so that it defaults to "www.domain.com" instead, please skip to step two.**

  • From within your Cloudflare account, click on the domain you wish to connect with ClickFunnels.
  • Along the top menu, select "DNS."
  • Locate the A Record for your root domain (just your domain.com) and click on the X to the right of the root name.
  • Cloudflare will ask if you are sure you want to delete; click "Yes."
  • Under DNS Records and towards the top, select CNAME from the dropdown.
  • Enter @ as the Name.
  • Enter target.clickfunnels.com as the Domain Name
  • Leave it as Automatic TTL
  • Click on the Orange Cloud to turn it Grey.
  • Click "Add Record."

**Please note: the cloud must be grey for this record.**

  • Next, add a CNAME for "www" and point it to your root domain. 
  • Make sure to leave the cloud orange for this record. 
  • Up top in the navigation, click on Page Rules
  • Click "Create Page Rule."
  • Enter your domain as "www.domain.com/*
  • Under Then the settings are: select Forwarding URL.
  • Under Select Status Code click "301 - Permanent Redirect."
  • For the destination url, enter is in this exact format: "https://domain.com/$1."
  • Click "Save and Deploy."

**Please note: Make sure to review the images and follow this format exactly.**

Step Two: Adding Your WWW CNAME Record

**Please note: if you are doing this setup, you should have skipped step one. If you did step one instead, please skip to step three.**

  • From within your Cloudflare account, click on the domain you wish to connect with ClickFunnels.
  • Along the top menu, select "DNS."
  • Under DNS Records and towards the top, select CNAME from the dropdown.
  • Put "www" as the Name and "target.clickfunnels.com" as the Domain Name.
  • Make sure to click on the Orange cloud so it turns Grey
  • Create a 2nd CNAME with @ as the Name and your domain (i.e. www.domain.com) as the Domain Name (please review image for an example). 
  • Leave this cloud as Orange. 
  • Back at the top navigation, click "Page Rules."
  • Enter your domain as "domain.com/*" 
  • Under Then the settings are: select Forwarding URL.
  • Under Select Status Code click "301 - Permanent Redirect."
  • For the destination url, enter is in this exact format: "https://www.domain.com/$1."
  • Click "Save and Deploy."
