Already own a domain through GoDaddy?

Great! With Pro, you can bring your GoDaddy domain to and connect it to your about. me page in just five simple steps.

Step 0

If you want to skip five steps and connect your domain in just one simple step, use the Godaddy connect button. If not, move on to steps 1-5.


Step 1

Log in to your GoDaddy account at .

If you're already logged in, simply click the person icon in the right-hand corner next to the cart icon and go to "Manage domains."



Step 2

You'll see a few tabs across the top - click on "DNS" and then "Manage Zones" in the drop-down menu. Type in the domain you're connecting to your page and hit enter.


Step 3

In your DNS Management, you'll see your domain at the top, and "Records" below. Here's where things can get a little bit tricky, so follow along with the example below and make sure all of your values match what you see in the recording.

A. For your A record, replace whatever is under "Value" with (copy and paste that number just as it is and be sure there are no extra periods at the end).

B. For your CNAME record, just make sure "www" is under "Name" and "@" is under "Value." Also, be sure that your Nameservers are set to default. If you see custom here, click to change the selection to default.


(Pay particularly close attention to the CNAME and A Records - there should be no other IP addresses or records in this view.)

Your DNS Records should look similar to the screenshot below: 


Step 4

Head back to your page to check to make sure everything is connected properly.


Step 5

You're all set! Go to your new domain and check out how beautiful your new page is! Just a reminder that your domain may take up to 48 hours to fully connect.
