What’s up?!

In this video, I wanted to show you how you can add a subdomain to your existing domain within ClickFunnels using Cloudflare.

This setup will not work unless you already have the regular domain integration setup between ClickFunnels and Cloudflare, so make sure to check that video out first if you haven’t integrated a custom domain with ClickFunnels yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbyX55esv_Q&t=44s&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNASorSJ04itRrhsnZ00x5u&index=27.

A subdomain is the word that comes before your domain. So for example ‘www’ is a subdomain to many domains. However you can change your subdomain to be whatever you want it to be, such as ‘blog’, ‘kite’, or ‘monkeys’. Literally whatever word you want to have instead of ‘www’, you can.

This can be of benefit to you since it will be more informative to the visitors as to what your site is about. If your site is a blog, perhaps a ‘blog’ as a subdomain would be better than ‘www’. In addition, if you are an affiliate promoting someone else’s products, it may make things easier for you to sell if you can put the company name for which you are selling as a subdomain. Keep in mind this MAY go against the terms of use for some companies, so make sure you clarify this with them before using their name as a subdomain.

But either way, when you do decide you would like to utilize a subdomain, simply head over to your Cloudflare account, go to the DNS settings tab, and select ‘CNAME’ from the dropdown on the left-hand side. Put in any subdomain name you would like (I am using ‘blog’ in this video), and direct it to ‘target.clickfunnels.com’. You are not limited to one subdomain and can have multiple at the same time.

After you do that, simply head in to your ClickFunnels account, go to the ‘custom domains’ tab, and add your new full subdomain and domain name under the ‘manual setup’ option. So something like this: subdomain.domain.com.

That’s pretty much it! Now you just need to go to the actual funnel where you want to change the subdomain and select the new domain you added from the dropdown.

That’s it!
