These are the steps on how to manually connect your domain through GoDaddy.

⚠️ If you are wanting to migrate a blog you can not switch your DNS records until our Showit blog team has finished migrating your blog. If you do switch your DNS records before your blog is migrated, our blog team will be unable to migrate your blog. Once the migration is complete, our team will message you and give you the necessary DNS records.

If you need to add or migrate a blog you can do so here:

💡 If you've already applied the DNS settings and just need to have the SSL (secured url) applied, you can message our support team and ask for that to be setup.

To get started you'll want to login to your GoDaddy account where you purchased the domain. After you have logged in, select your name in the upper right and then select
"My Products."

This will bring you to the products page where you'll see a list of all your domains. Select the domain you'd like to edit the DNS settings for.

Next, scroll down the Domain Settings Page to the bottom and choose manage DNS.

Then, you'll see a list of all the DNS records for your domain. Set the DNS records to the following values:
A Record: @ to: (Have a blog? Use the IP provided by our team)
A record: * to:
CNAME: www to: @ (The @ is the default to your domain)

***Important***  Make sure there are no other A Records named @  or CNAME Records named www.  If there are, delete those records so the new DNS settings will apply. 

Once you have set up these 3 DNS records occasionally, the changes that were made can take time to propagate throughout the internet worldwide. So if you aren't seeing it live just yet, give it another few hours, and refresh the page.
In rare cases, it can take up to 48 hours for full propagation. If it's not working at that point for you, then let us know.

If you need your URL secured (SSL applied) please contact our support team in the Showit app (bottom right corner) and ask for an SSL certificate to be applied.
