Help with Webflow SSL via GoDaddy


#1

Hey there - I hate to post redundant topics, but I am having trouble establishing SSL with GoDaddy. I’ve read connecting a custom domain by Webflow and am still struggling. Also, the solution provided in this similar question is too vague to be considered a solution.

Here’s my list of Records on GoDaddy:

and here’s the current state of my domains on the Webflow side:

Do I need to remove certain records from this list (webflow’s help pages told me to create/add some records, but did not say to remove or replace others - unless I missed that)? Are some of my records incorrect? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Best,
Christopher

Hello @seetravers

Delete the first 2 @ records and the first CNAME one and you should be good to go.

I will give this a shot. Thank you.


#4

@aaronocampo Unfortunately removing those broke access to the site. Any other ideas?


#5

I thought you didn’t have access to the site.


#6

The situation is the site does load with the records in the above screenshots, but does not load as showing ”Secure” by Google.

I need to figure out how to get the site to be viewed as secure.

@webflow can you jump here?

@seetravers in your hosting tab there’s a chat button that you can use to contact Webflow’s Support team, they should be able to help you with this.

Sounds good, I’ll reach out to them.

Hi @seetravers I looked at your records:

https://www.whatsmydns.net/#CNAME/www.writkit.com
https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/writkit.com

They still have the old records.

Please remove the A-Records:
104.156.81.229
22.235.33.229

And change your CNAME to proxy-ssl.webflow.com

​Try these steps and let me know if you’re successful. I’ll be standing by for your response.

Cheers

All set - thank you both! I needed a www CNAME record pointing at proxy.webflow.com (not www.writkit.com pointing there) for it to work.

Thanks again,
Christopher
