It’s the first time I’m trying to put my site online, and I’m running through some troubles, hopefully somebody will be able to help me ^^;
So I’ve bought a domain name on GoDaddy, and chose to host my site on Netlify. I’ve started the process on Netlify, until the point where I reached the 3rd step “Secure your site with HTTPS”. It then takes me to the “Domain Management” section. There, It displays 3 domains in the custom domain section:
(The last 2 ones are the domain names I bought on GoDaddy)
For the last 2 ones, I got an error saying “Check DNS Configuration”, and when I click on it, It advised me to “Log in to the account you have with your DNS provider, and add a CNAME record for www pointing to sharp-meitner-f42803.netlify.app.”
So I went to GoDaddy and tried that, but it wouldn’t let me add a CNAME record for www (I would get an error everytime I tried). So I looked online, and found some tuto about how to setup on GoDaddy. This tuto was basically saying I need to get the NameServers from Netlify and use them in my GoDaddy NameServers’ section. Problem is, I didn’t how to find NameServers for Netlify, so I’ve tried using the following 2:
Now back on Netlify, I get a processing mark in the HTTPS section saying “waiting on DNS propagation”. I don’t know if it means I did things right and just need to wait a few hours, or if I’m wrong.
I tried to get in touch with the GoDaddy customer support and they fixed by using the forward function, but the guy keeps asking me for NameServer to configure it properly without forwarding, so I’m a bit confused…
Also, although the forwarding takes me to the welcome page, all the other sub-pages seems to not be linked. Is it something I need to fix on Netlify or GoDaddy?
Sorry it’s a lot of details and probably stupid questions, but it’s my first time, and I’d be really thankful for any help…
