I am in the middle of migrating my domain (jdebordphoto.com) to my Pixels website.
Under "Behind the scenes" it says this ---
You have to point your CNAME Record to the following URL: custom.artistwebsites.com. Don't include http:// or any other prefixes.
For the host name, type "www" without the quotes.
I use 1& 1 as my domain host.
I don't know which one I should edit (see screen shot below) and really don't want to risk messing this up.
Any ideas which it is that I want to point my CNAME to?
If I am understanding, I literally just enter "custom.artistwebsites.com" verbatim, word for word?
I believe the autodiscover record might be a 1and1 email record. So it looks like you should replace the _domainconnect record with custom.artistwebsites.com word for word. You can always just copy and paste the old record(s) (or take a screenshot of the records) and save them if you think you might screw up. You can always put them back.
You can definitely get padlocks on your site using Cloudflare SSL. Below is a short tutorial video I made. If the video seems blurry click one of the HD settings.
You will need to set your records at 1&1 to point to Cloudflare and then set the Cloudflare records to your artist website...takes about 5 minutes. It's free to use Cloudflare SSL. Note: The domain I used in the video is just one of mine that I am using for illustrative purposes.
Right. I was going to post the link, but I think all of the information we put on there as we worked through the proper settings, and the other sorta unrelated info posted, might confuse a few folks. ;) In any case, it was a job well done. Anyone that needs help, feel free to post there if they like.
Thanks all for the help. Been sick so I am just getting around to reading the replies.
I have forwarded my domain but I am getting the "insecure" alert. Hm, this isn't good.
I am going to watch the tutorial Don posted & holler back later if I have any questions.
