Naked domain points to Heroku instead of Clickfunnels


#1

Hey, so www.domain.com and https://www.domain.com points to my ClickFunnels funnel just fine.
But when I type in the naked url without www or https it goes to a Heroku page totally unrelated to clickfunnels.
I followed the set-up from Clickfunnels and are using 2 CNAMES.

www
@

I saw people mentioning in other posts I need to enter an A-record. But it says that can’t be done since the 2 CNAME records already have the www and @.

Any idea how I can get this naked url to point to ClickFunnels also?

Thank you!

If you make sure the naked domain is set to :orange:, you should set a Page Rule for a Forwarding URL.
Match example.com/* and URL Forward it (301) to https://www.example.com/

Just to clarify, I believe ClickFunnels runs on Heroku. The issue is that they register your www (www.example.com) with their heroku load balancer, not your naked domain.


For a fix, you should remove the @/root/apex record from your DNS, then add a new A record with the name set to @, and address 192.0.2.1. Then, do as @sdayman instructed and create a page rule that redirects the root domain to the www subdomain, like below:

(301 or 302 is up to you)

Thank you Judge, that worked out perfectly.
The page-rule was already in place so I just removed the @ CNAME and created the A-record to 192.0.2.1 as you instructed.

However, where is 192.0.2.1 pointing to? Isn’t this an internal address? It feels weird to me that I want to link it to clickfunnels but need to use an address like 192.0.2.1 to get it done. Or is it just a dummy address to get the page-rule activated?

Exactly that.
