How do I set up my domain name as my Pro Page URL with SSL?

Below are the instructions which will allow you to set up your custom domain name as your Pro Page URL.

After following these instructions, it can take a few business days to apply the SSL certificate.  Your default URL based on your username followed by "" should still be secure in the meantime.  

For Godaddy:

1.  Click the "Add" button (see screenshot)

  First, we will create a CNAME.  Type/select the following values into each field: 

Type: CNAME 

Host: www

 Points to:  

 If you receive "An unexpected error occurred." during this step, this error usually occurs when users already have an existing "CNAME" with "www" as the host.  If this is the case, you will need to edit that one instead of creating a new one.


3. Next, you will need to create an A Record. Cick the "Add" and fill in the A Record with the information below. 

Type: A

Host: @

Points To:


4.  Delete any Forwarding you have set-up. Click the Trash can icon to delete.


5. Delete any old A Record with an @ Host. You may need to refresh the page in order to delete them.


6.  Lastly, log into your BeatStars account and visit the Pro Page Setup page.  You will need to input your domain name in the "Domain Name" field. Do not include http:// or www. before your entry, please simply start with your actual domain name (see screenshot)Screen_Shot_2021-01-14_at_1.43.57_PM.png
