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

This article applies to:

  • Beat Sellers
  • Professional Plan

 

Overview:
In this article, you'll learn how to connect your custom domain to your Pro Page. The screenshots shown are on GoDaddy, but any domain provider should have equivalent sections to configure your DNS. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: 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 ".beatstars.com" should still be secure in the meantime. 

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Click the "Add" button.

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

    Type: CNAME
    Host: www
    Points to:  propage.beatstars.com

    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.5a_Newer.jpg

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

    Type: A
    Host: @

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

    NOTE: You will not need to add an AAAA record. Please remove any AAAA record on your DNS settings.

  5. Delete any old A Record with an @ Host. You may need to refresh the page in order to delete them. Screen_Shot_2018-12-11_at_12.25.44_PM.png

  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.Screen_Shot_2021-01-14_at_1.43.57_PM.png
