How do I setup my GoDaddy domain name as my Pro Page URL with SSL? **NEW**

Below are the instructions which will allow you to setup your GoDaddy domain name as your Pro Page URL.  Please note that the option to use your own domain name as your Pro Page URL is only offered to Pro and Unlimited BeatStars members.  If your domain name service provider is not GoDaddy, please contact your domain name service provider with regards to setup instructions with 3rd party services.

1.  Go to GoDaddy.com and sign into your account.  (see screenshot)


2.  
Click the "Manage" button.  (see screenshot)


3.
  Next click the "Settings" icon and then click "Manage DNS".  (see screenshot)


 


4.  C
lick the "Add" link.  (see screenshot)


5.
 Next select "CNAME" for the "Type" field and input "www" in the "Host" field.  Then input "propage.beatstars.com" (NOT YOUR URL) in the "Points to" field and click "Save".  (see screenshot)

IMPORTANT:  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.

6. 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: 52.206.159.80

8. Delete any old A Record with an @ Host. YOU MAY NEED TO REFRESH PAGE FIRST TO BE ABLE TO DELETE THEM.

9.  Lastly, log into your BeatStars account and visit the link Pro Page Setup.  You will need to input your domain name in the "Domain Name" field.  (see screenshot)

IMPORTANT:  Do not include http:// and/or www. before your entry, please simply start with your actual domain name.  Also, you may need to clear your browser's cache, close your browser, and then re-open your browser after this step in order to see your Pro Page populate correctly.

    Hi Yung Pros,

    We're sorry if you are having trouble. This error usually occurs when users already had an existing cname with a www as the host. If this is indeed the case, you will need to edit that one instead of creating a new one.

    We hope this information helps.

    best,
    BeatStars Team

    This is not working at all for me, I have followed all the directions over and over again and its still not working. My site is just redirecting to Beatstars.com/sell-music. I need help ASAP with this issue.

    I have finally gotten it to work. Make sure before you follow these instructions that you disconnect your domain from any hosting accounts your domain is connected to, as well as changing your nameservers back to default. The first few times I did it I did change the nameservers, but I didnt realize that wix was storing my domain and I had to disconnect it as well. After that, I followed the instructions and it came right up.
