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
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.
Step 5: Add/Edit the CNAME
Step 6: Now, Let’s Attach That To Your Carrot Site
A: Point Your Domain to Your Carrot Website
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! Give it a few for the changes to update, then return to here to add your domain to your Carrot site’s dashboard.
