Add an HTTPS record
Increase security and reduce page load times on your website by adding an HTTPS record to your DNS zone file. Every time you load a web page in your browser, the browser goes through a series of checks to determine what service protocol it should use to load the page, either http:// or https://. HTTPS records explicitly tell the browser to make the connection over HTTPS, removing the extra checks upfront and helping pages load faster.
- Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
- Select Domain Edit Options next to your domain and then select Edit DNS. You may need to scroll down to see Edit DNS.
- Select Add to add a new record.
- Select HTTPS from the Type menu options.
- Enter the details for your new HTTPS record:
- Name: The hostname for the HTTPS record. Type @ to put the record on your root domain, or enter a subdomain prefix such as www.
- Priority: The priority is always set to 0 because we currently only support HTTPS records in Alias mode.
- Value: Enter a domain name the HTTPS record will point to.
- TTL: Determines how long the server should cache information. The default setting is 1 hour.
- Select Add record to save your new HTTPS record.
Most DNS updates take effect within an hour, but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
- Edit an existing HTTPS record or delete records you no longer need.
- Create a new Websites + Marketing site and get connected with professional email.
- Turn on auto-renew to continue your domain registration uninterrupted.
