This tutorial will guide you on how to properly setup your domain on Google.
Want us to do it for you? Please scroll to the end of this tutorial and complete the form to get started.
*You may find your registrar’s support team asking for an “IP Address” to attach the domain name. We use a cname record to attach domain names because using IP Addresses means a systems servers must remain the same and ours do not and flux with incoming traffic and other updates. To ensure domain names always work, please use a cname to attach the domain to your site.
*If you have a custom email, this process will likely disconnect the email. Please be sure to check with your registrar to ensure it continues to work after this update.
Step 1: Login to your Google Domains Account
Step 2: Click on My Domain and Manage
Step 3: Click on DNS
Step 4: Add the Non-www redirect & CName
Scroll down and under Synthetic records, add the Subdomain forward entering “@” in the first box and your domain with “http://www.YourDomain.com” as the second box. This must be the domain you are setting up inside of Google (with http://www. in front of it), not your *.carrot.com admin URL. Select Permanent Redirect (301) and leave the other values as they are.
Enter the below info exactly. Do not enter anything else, including your personal carrot.com site URL, or it will not work.
Similar to the step above, scroll down further to Custom resource records and add CNAME with “www” in the first box and “carrot.com” in the second box.
Step 6: Now, Let’s Attach That To Your Carrot Site
Sign into your Carrot Account page and click the green box to “add a custom domain.”
Enter your domain name on Step #1, then hit “Save Custom Domain” to save changes.
That’s it! If you have any trouble at all, hit up support via email or live chat for guidance. We will also gladly do it for ya if you provide Support with your Google login info.
Just come through chat because of the 2-factor authentication on your google domain account that will require quick verification through a code!
Google is going to send you a verification that will require you to send us the code in real time!
You can do this by logging into your Carrot account, then clicking on the orange chat bubble:
