The process to set up a custom domain from GoDaddy is short and simple.
Create your site on Popsy and click the Publish button on top.
Enter the domain that you bought on GoDaddy and click Next.
Choose GoDaddy from the list of domain providers and click Next.
You will see a list of 2 records on the right.* These are so-called DNS records that you will add to your domain on GoDaddy in the next steps.
*If you are using a subdomain (like: subdomain.mydomain.com) then you will only see 1 record.
Open a new tab in your browser and go to GoDaddy. Log in to your account and open the My Products page from the dropdown in the top right corner.
Scroll down to where you see a list of all the domains you own.
Click the DNS button next to the domain you want to use.
A list of all DNS records for this domain will show. First, you should delete any preexisting records with the name of
www. These are the records we will be replacing. If your list doesn't include any
www records you can skip this step.
Click the edit icon on the right side of the @ record. Then click the trash icon on the right and confirm the deletion. Do the same for the record with the name www.
You are now ready to add DNS records from Popsy.
Click Add on the right side.
Go back to Popsy and copy the value from the 1st record.
Go to GoDaddy and choose option
A under Type and type in
@ under Host. Paste the value you copied from Popsy under Points to. Click Save. The first record is now set up.
You have to do the same for the 2nd record.*
On GoDaddy click Add again. Choose option
A under Type, and type in
www under Host. Copy the value under 2nd record on Popsy and paste it under Points to.
*If you are using a subdomain (like: subdomain.mydomain.com) then you only need to set 1 record.
Click Save on GoDaddy, go back to Popsy, and click Publish.
You are done! 🙏
The publishing process usually takes a few minutes, but in some cases, it can take up to 24 hours.
