  5. You will see the DNS record data that you will need to add to your domain’s DNS. You will need to update this from within the administrative console offered by your DNS Provider. (Popular DNS providers include GoDaddy, Namecheap etc.)

Adding DNS Records to GoDaddy

Different domain providers have different way to configure the domain DNS. In this article, we will cover the most common steps. But for more information, we’d recommend visiting the help documentation of your domain’s provider.

  1. Login to your domain provider's administrative console.

  2. Go to DNS Settings section.

  3. Navigate to DNS configurations / Manage DNS section.

  4. Press the Add a new Record button.

  5. First add an “A Record”. Copy the record name and value from the tab that appeared in the Add Domain section.

  6. Press the save button.

  7. Next, add a “TXT Record”. Copy the record name and value and save it too.

Now, you can head back to CodeDesign and press the Validate Domain Button. It may take up about 1 hour for the changes to propagate.

Once the domain is successfully validated, you should see the table below.

Now, head back to your project and go to the deploy tab. You should see the domain name that you added. Press the “Deploy Current Version” button to publish your project to your domain.

Congrats, you’ve successfully deployed your project!
