Okay, so we're here for John to set up the Mail Gun and make sure that Mailgun is operating properly for him. So John, as I look at this screen, one of the things that I'm not seeing is the API key from Mailgun that is going to show up in your dashboard. So in Mailgun itself, like your main Mailgun account, you'll have an API key with that and you'll need to put pop that into here. So if you click on that little pencil icon next to the target and let's explain where Mail gun fits into this scenario. So GHL as a framework has obviously our contact database. It has our automations and calendars and all of the bits of GHL that we know. What it doesn't actually do is send the mails. And that's a system that's called SMTP. I don't know what it stands for, I can't think of it off the top of my head. But SMTP is the sending mail system. That's what sends emails. So Mailgun exists as the, I guess, is the engine that sends the email. So GHL will say to Mailgun, here's 100 emails, send them out, and Mailgun will actually process all of those emails going out.
The way that it fits within our agency framework is that GHL agency owners can have multiple Mailgun sub accounts. So every time you bring on a client, John, you're going to go into Mailgun, you're going to set up a sub account for them, and then you have GHL as an agency account, multiple Mailgun sub accounts, and you're able to offer them the email service as an agencybud. If you've got SAS mode, you can then charge for that as well. Now, do you have to have Mailgun? No, you can use any SMTP provider, but Mailgun is the one that GHL have connected with so that you can do the agency sub account thing without Mail, if you choose to go a different path. So let's say you choose Postmark or you choose Send Grid or you choose Mail in Blue or so many other different SMTP providers out there. What you're going to need to do is get your client to create an account, get their API key, put it onto the system, username password, all that kind of stuff, and use a different scenario. Mailgun just works inside of GHL. So Mailgun is the email sending engine at the moment when I say at the moment, we may have seen that GHL have got their own mail system coming up and they've started to release it.
There's some pluses and minuses. We'll go into it in a little bit. But John, to get you set up, first of all we need have you got a Mailgun account?
I do. And before we go further, what I probably should also tell you is that some time ago when I first got Go high level, I had a Mailgun account set up and I have a separate domain that I initially purchased, thinking this is before you guys came along and saw everything, the possibility with it. So there's already another domain within Mailgun and again, this is probably just my lack of understanding or technical know how here, but I just wanted to follow the instructions you had in the videos and everything. So I got another domain. So I've added that to Mailgun and I've got both of those domains in there. One that was initially intended to be attached to my agency sub account and then I've got this other domain now that's intended to be a part of just the email prospecting side in which of course I have you guys tied in with that, if that makes sense.
Yeah, absolutely. So let me just subject you to my world famous and terrible whiteboard drawing skills. Can you guys see my whiteboard here?
I sure do.
Okay, cool. Great. So if this is your main GHL account, this is your primary GHL account, you're also then going to have a primary Mailgun account. So that kind of sits out to the side. A primary Mailgun account. There's only one primary account. So when you're saying you've got a domain in there already, that's great, but you've actually only got one Mail account. From there you're going to be able to have an unlimited amount of domains that you can add to Mailgun. So you've already got one in there, you can have 25,000 in there and they are all then connected to that Mailgun primary account. Okay, so they're all connected here and then that Mailgun primary account is connected to your agency account within GHL. Now one of the most important things to realise is that this is the agency connection. Each one of these sub accounts is a sub account within GHL. So all of the domains connect to sub accounts or what we call locations, right?
So first things first is we make sure that this is set up right. We make sure that the agency Mailgun and the agency GHL are connected. After that, each one of the sub domains you set up will connect to a sub account in jail. So we can do that together and that's going to be fun. Okay. If you don't mind. So what's going to happen if you want to do this together on the call? Sure. What's going to happen is people are going to see your system and jump in. If you haven't got a lot in there, that's okay, but if you're happy to share, that would be great and we can walk through it.
Yeah, it does bother me. I don't want to dominate too much of the time because I know this.
No, it's a common question and quickly and when we started, when we started, Mailgun absolutely screwed my head up until I got it sorted and then and then twilio screwed, screwed my head up, so and then I got that sorted. So it's literally just one thing at a time, and it's something that everybody goes through. Man so let's jump through it and nail it down together. So, yeah, share your screen and we'll have a look at what's going on. So if you can log into Mailgun for us, john sure. And let's jump into Mailgun. The first thing we're going to do is connect your Mailgun API to your GHL Agency account. Perfect. Awesome. Great. So up in the top right hand corner, if you can go over to your John Rosen North Sky Agency avatar and just click on that and go to API keys. There you go. Now the private key at the top, just click on that page. Just click on the eyeball next to that one over on the right.
Let me move this over here then.
Okay, zoom is always in the way. Grab that. Copy that whole key. Okay.
Sorry. You're good under pressure now.
It's always the way, isn't it always the way? Okay, now let's go back to your agency in Northgy. That's the one. Pop that API key in there. Fantastic. Now, straight away, if you've already got domains in there, you probably see them now in the drop down. There you go. Perfect. All right, so one of the things that so pick one of those. Yeah. You can grab North Sky Agency mail.
Okay, there's just one quick question I would have for you. There is the North Sky Agency. Dash mail. That's the one I most recently acquired following the instructions through the white label suite. And then the other one is the one I purchased before. So does it really make a difference, or should I just stick with the North Sky Agencybud mail?
Stick with the North Sky Agency mail. That's fine. Click on save for that one.
All right. So now what we've done right now is we have connected an email system up to your GHL Agency account. Now, guys, for everybody here on the call, danger, danger. Red flashing light, warning symbols and crashing Claxtons. All right? Something that I only just realised, not just realised, but I realised probably three or four months after we started ramping up with Comet, was every single client that you add to your account now can mail on your domain unless you turn it off. Okay? So when you now add a sub account, hey, fantastic, we've got a new client. Great, great. As soon as you add that sub account, by default, they get added to your Mailgun sending system. Now, what does that mean? That means that if you're not on top of your SOPs if you're not on top of your processes, what's going to happen is somebody's going to come in and, let's say maybe on a free trial, right? On a free trial, they get in and they upload a hundred thousand list that they bought off fiverr and hit send, right? They will be able to send and it will send on your domain.
Okay, so red flashing light, warning clacks and sounds. What you need to do is in your SOPs literally remove that connection as one of your first things that you do. So the ones that you've got there at the moment, John, they didn't automatically update. So it hasn't kind of put it on there. But if you add a sub account now, it will automatically add that mailing system to them. So you need to go in and disconnect it until you've got their sub account. So now, as of right now, you've got a method of sending email. Now the next part is to do this on the sub account level, right? So this North Sky Agency Hyphen Mail, that is the system that your primary GHL account is going to send from right now. Okay, so do you have Norskyagency.com? Is that your primary domain?
Yes, that is correct.
Okay, cool. So what I might encourage you to do in that case and we'll do this together, is I would encourage you to add your primary domain to Mailgun as a sub account. And I'll explain what I mean in just a second and then add that primary domain's emailing capability to your primary GHL location, the one that you keep your customers. I can see your confusion. Let's do it together. I can see your confusion, so let's do it together. Okay, so again, I'm going to subject you guys to my drawing skills. I'm just going to kind of try and outline what we've got here. So right now, we've got John system connected up. He's got a way of his sub accounts mailing, but it's not his primary account. His primary GHL account is Northsky Agencybud.com. Right? Northskyagency.com. Now, what we want to do over in Mailgun, we want to set this up the right way. So this is a primary domain. And for your customers, when you have clients coming on board, they have a primary domain. They have their brand that you do not want to stuff up with thousands of thousands of cold emails.
Okay? So a primary domain is gold, right? So you've got a primary domain you're also going to set up because you're a member of Whitelevel Suite, you're also going to set up a prospecting domain. So you're going to have a sub account in GHL, and you're going to call that sub account we call ours Comet Suite Mail. We've comet suite mail number one. Comet suite. Mail number two. So this is going to be North Sky Agency mailing, sub account number one. All right? Now, over in GHL sorry, over in Mailgun, what we're going to do, so this is Mailgun the Beast over here in Mailgun, we are going to create sub domains for each of our sub accounts in GHL. And again, I know subs and whatever we're getting confusing, but I will show you what I mean. So over in Mailgun, for each sub account, we're going to set this up. So this is going to be Nska Mailing one, but we're also going to set up.com as a subdomain. Then we're going to set up client account one and we're going to set client account two and on we go. So let's show you exactly what I mean and how to do that.
So if I can get you to share your screen again, john yes, sir. And we'll go back over to Mailgun. All right, cool. So now we've got our primary API key connected up over on the left hand side in the menu it says Sending. If you can click on that and go down to Domains. It's actually the one that's opened up already so we can see that we've got a couple of Domains in this system already. Now we get a client. The client is from Xyzedengineering.com. You can add that new domain and you're just going to add in Mail or Reply Xyzengineering.com. Mailgun is going to give you some instructions that you then have to go and set up on Cloudflare. We're going to treat your primary agency account just like a client, John. So the first thing that we're going to do is you're going to click on Add New Domain at the top and you're going to add malcolm likes to keep it in Sub Domain. So that's fine. Just type in something like Replies northskyagency.com. Perfect. And click on add domain. Cool. Now this is going to give you a set of instructions that you then have to put into Cloudflare.
So great. I'm expecting that to show in just a second. It looks like Mailgun is not refreshing.
Manually refresh that.
Yeah. Click on Refresh. We'll get there another way. Okay, so now we've got replies. Northskyagency.com. There we go. Just click on wait, let's see if we can retrieve it. Over on the left, click on Domains again from the main menu, we can get to the same screen another way. Okay, so click on domains.
It looks like I'm frozen up here or something. I was trying to close out another browser window.
No problem. You might just have to open up Mail going in a new tab or something like that. Click on Exit this time and let's give it a kick. Okay, so we're going to treat your agencybud as a client and you're going to do the same thing for each client that comes on board. So as soon as it opens up on the left, click on Sending, click on Domains and let's open up the one that you just added, which is Replies Milsky Agencybud right there. Perfect. Cool. When that opens up, you're going to see a screen and one of the choices on that screen is going to be SMTP Settings, sorry, DNS Settings. So let's click on that one and let's see if we can get it to open. Oh, man, mail Gun is really not behaving do you want to try a different browser or actually, if we're still having trouble, I'll show you from my end. We'll record it. Okay.
Yeah, I don't want to hold things up here. I can follow along while you're okay, cool, no worries.
Let's do it from my end then and we will see what we can do here. Cool. So let me just make sure I've got all my stuff here and sharing the right desktop. There we go. Okay, cool. So we're getting into Mailgun and we also are going to be in Cloudflare. So Cloudflare is for those geeks amongst us. Cloudflare is a CMD system, which basically means it shares web load. And it's amazing. It's also free at the base level or the level that we need it. So that is impressive. Where are we? Which one do we need? That one. Who's using Cloudflare? Guys, just give me a yes or a one or a show of hands if you're a Cloudflare person. If you don't know what Cloudflare is, give me a two. Like, let me know that you've never come across it or you've used it before. So give me a one or a two in the chat box. One. You know it two. You're not familiar with it? Most ones are. Cool. Everybody that's answered, we've got a one. So you guys know where we're at? Two. Okay, great. Cool. So the reason we use Cloudflare and clients will ask is, why do you use Cloudflare?
Because it just makes management of DNS Records easy stuff. So for those who don't use Cloudflare, typically you're managing your DNS at the registrar, like GoDaddy or Namecheap or all of that kind of stuff. Why don't you buy so Diana asks, why don't you buy your domains from Cloudflare? I could. You can go and buy a domain right here. It doesn't matter where you buy your domains from. The reason we don't buy our domains from here is just because we never have, which means we've got hundreds and hundreds of domains in namecheap and it's just the place that we go to buy domains. There's no reason not to buy domains from here. Okay, cool. So in Cloudflare, where we were up to with John was getting what we call the DNS Records. So that is what I need to get to to take our next step. So let's go here. DNS records domain name server records. And what Domain Name Server Records are is like the address when somebody is sending you a physical piece of mail, right? So DNS Records is just like the server talking to each other, saying, where are things up to?
So we got to sending, we clicked on domains, we found a specific domain, and we were going from there, what we needed to do. So I'm going to grab this client's account just as an example. Here we go. Do you know what it looks like Mailgun themselves are having trouble. John, I am not able to click on that link. So something's up with Mailgun today. Oh, my stats are good. Say again? Your stats? Oh, yours is right at the top there, bro. Fantastic. Nice. 56% open rates. Amazing. 118% open rates. Interesting. Mailgun is not behaving well for us. Okay, cool. We'll do this. 133%. That's even better. That is even better. That's amazing down there. So guys, it looks like Mailgun's having some troubles this morning. So that's going to, that's going to screw us up. But so let me talk screen to screen right here for a second. So what we do is we get DNS records from Mailgun. Mailgun says create these records, create a text record, create an A name record, create CNAME records, and create MX records, which is for mail. So Mailgun tells us, create a text record that says this, create a CNAME record that says that, create this, create that.
And we do all of that on cloudflare. There's one extra record which we've put into our training, which is called a DMark record. And DMark, if you put in a DMARC record, it will help your mail deliverability like nothing else will. Let me put the document here, the DMart record. So we've got it on our checklist. There we go. So if you create for those who know, okay, is the whole world's computer systems, like just screwy this morning because I can't even open a Word document. Now. If you create the DMark record, you will have better mail delivery. And I am honestly struggling to get anything to open, which is going to be a fun session this morning. Okay. What have you done to me, John? I blame John. I'm just kidding. I'm just kidding. Not truly. That's my to do list, which is never ending. Commentsuite? Here we go. Onboarding, set up, checklist now. I've got it. Okay, cool. Here's the DMark record. This is what I was trying to get to. So, guys, please take a note of this. It will help your delivery. I'm going to pop it into the chat box for everybody here.
So here we go. This is the Demarc record. It is the name of the record is underscore Demarc. And then the value of the record is that next line. V equals DMark one semicolon, p equals reject semicolon. So when you're creating your record, create that as a text record. It will help your deliverability. Like, just copy that, paste it somewhere. I'll show you what it looks like. So this is the domain I was going to work with. And we're in our DNS records. This is what it looks like at the end, guys. So all of these records are the ones that that Mailgun give us CNAME, create the CNAME, point it to that. Always turn off the orange cloud. MX record, MX record, and three text records. And there's that DMC one that I said to put in there. All right. And that's actually got an error that I can see because it's got an extra comma right there. Okay, so this is what it looks like at the end. Six records on cloudflare. And away you go. Right. So we put our domain onto Mailgun. We've set up our mail records clicking on Verify, and Mailgun will now show that up.
What happens next? What happens next? Next you come to your agency account again. So we go to Agencybud View. We come down to Settings, and we come to Mailgun right here. All right, now what we need to do is search by location. So we go seven four, I think, was that particular client. Seven four, Rap City. Okay, we go edit. And I've got Rebuilding on, so I can't change it at the moment. Go and change it to all that kind of stuff and just you'll see domain now popping up in your in your in your oh, gee. Okay, cool. I always get caught with that. All right, cool. Go. Cool. There we go. All right. Sorry. So where are we? We're in agency view. Agencybud View. We come down to Settings. We come to Mailgun. All right, this is what we left John with. We could see that he's now got a system connected. All right. And now you've got all of your locations here. All right, so any of these locations, if I grab this one as an example and I'll come in, I need to change the Mailgun setup. Yes, I do. I want to type in Confirm.
Okay, change. And now you'll always be prompted to put your API key again. So I always encourage you guys to have that on a shortcut somewhere if it lets me do it.
Walt, may I ask you a quick question? Is that the same private API key that we grabbed from Amazon earlier? Yes, that's the same one that I'll use to then have that domain pop back up. I think that's really the sticking point where I've kind of started this whole thing with you. I didn't know where to go from there.
So you only have one API key for your entire Mailgun account, and that's the one that you put in here. As soon as you put that API key in, all of your domains are going to show here. So all of the ones that you've now set up and configured and done those records, well, they're all going to show up. So now you can assign that correct domain to that correct sub account.
That's the part that I was missing. Okay, listen, and for what it's worth, you did a better job explaining all of that stuff than some of the high level staff has and people I've talked to.
So thank you, man. I appreciate that. Even though we're familiar, despite technical issues.
Or whatever, it was still a better explanation. So if I understand correctly, then you were having me set up that other domain within Mailgun that was tied to my main Northskyagency.com I could now attach that one to your primary sub account, northsky Agency. Okay, so then from that point on, I think the only other thing I might be a little hazy on then is within Mailgun. You showed in your whiteboard drawing that I was setting up sub domain. Was it sub domains or sub accounts for each client within mail? Every client for every client, which term am I using? Is it sub account or sub domain within Mailgun?
Yeah, great question. Great question. So the word sub, when it comes to domains, the word sub domain refers to everything before the dot. So this is a subdomain mail, this is a sub domain replies ACH outreach. So everything that comes before the dot makes it a sub domain. Awesome. We'll jump straight to it. So that's what it means by sub domain. When you're actually in Mailgun, they just call it domains, right? So if we jump back in, hopefully we can get to this bit without dying on us. And this is our process, guys. So for every single client that we bring on board, we register a new domain for them for every client, which, as you saw just there, means we've got 166 domains and sub domains and all kinds of stuff, right? But there's a lot of reasons for that, which I'll go into in just a second. But let's cover off John's question. So everything before the dot is a sub domain. When you're talking about Mailgun coming over here and hitting sending, coming to domains, we're literally adding a new domain every time, right?
And that's just for that specific client each time that I'm doing that.
Yes, exactly right, exactly right, exactly. Now, guys, let me just focus for 1 second. What I said was every client, we create a new domain. Every client, we create a new domain here on Mailgun as well. Every client, we create that domain on cloudflare. Every single client we do this, right? Because what we're doing is we're creating a cold marketing solution. Now, if you're bringing in on a client, one of the questions they're going to ask you is this how come? So you can see that we use the word mail? So. 704 rhapsodymail.com. App Buildersmail.com. So we just add a suffix onto their primary domain, and they'll ask us, yeah, but how about my brand? I Walt to be sending from APB Builders. I don't want to be sending from App Builders mail.com. And this is our script. This is what we say to a client because we're going to be doing prospecting. I want to protect your primary domain. I don't want any blacklisting. I don't want any spam complaints. I want your primary domain to stay super, super, super clean, all right? Because if we start doing 1000 emails out, we're doing 2000 or 5000 out on cold email on your sub throwaway disposable domain.
If that starts getting some spam complaints, guess what? I go from App Buildersmail.com. To App Buildersdirect.com. App Buildersconnection.com. App builders. Whatever. I can throw away that domain. That's disposable. But nothing happens to your primary. All right? Now, guys, when we're talking from a comet perspective, we use that as an upsell. So what we do is we say, if you'd like to have so what we recommend is that we set up this additional domain for you purely for prospecting. So we do all of our prospecting over here in this sub account, in this subdomain. Now, that's a $97 a month Upsell for us. Welcome to GHL. Here's your calendars, here's your websites, here's your funnels, here's your forms, here's your contact database. Here's everything ready to go in your GHL account. Now, I'd also like to set up a prospecting account. It's $97 over here. And when I explain that I want to do that to protect their primary domain, it's an easy upsell, right? So then I'm literally only using that sub account to send mail. That's it. I'm not managing my clients. I'm not using it as a CRM tool, really. I'm just using it as a mail system.
Okay? And then I connect my Leads account to that prospecting programme rather than the main account. So we created domains for every single client. We protect their main domain by doing so. And then we're just sending mail from that sub account. Yeah. John, does that help for every client? Set up a domain for every client, set up an account in Mailgun and connect them up in that way, it.
Makes a whole heck of a lot more sense. And I really appreciate you taking all this time to do this. My apologies to anybody else on the call. This took so long. This really helps clarify a lot of this last little tidbit I have for you. Then, as you mentioned earlier, we want to make sure that we turn it off for other clients sub accounts so that they're not emailing through.
How do I thank you? Yes, absolutely. So the question and that was my big warning, flashing claxons and all that kind of stuff before. So how do we turn it off? And you can see here, for example, that this person, if they really wanted to hit send right now, they're going to send from my mail account, danger. How do I turn it off? Hit the pencil icon. All right? Hit confirm right. And then click this red button, delete connection. Okay? Done. No longer possible.
Until we set up that second domain for them.
Now you got it. You got it exactly right, man. You got it exactly right. So in your SLPs, guys, in your standard procedures, what, checklist when a new client comes on board, give it to your VA or do it yourself, whatever is your model right now, do turn that off. We've been fortunate. We haven't got stung, but there's a potential. And I actually saw somebody pop up in the group reporting. A scammer, somebody that's actually getting into G-H-L funnels and spamming the crap out of their Twilio as soon as they get their connection. So they might spend $97 with you and $97 with me and $97 with Rob and $97 with Star and $97 with whoever, and they get in, and they just go, 2 million text messages blitzed, and you are paying for that from your Twilio. So be aware that there's stuff like that. And again, from an email perspective, that's your process. Delete that connection as soon as they come in until you've got their mail account set up, make sure that they're not able to leverage it.
So if I don't see any API key or domain next to any of these clients sub accounts, then there isn't any connection there to begin with. Is it fair to say that is 100% there's nothing to delete?
Correct. You had a whole bunch in there that didn't have anything next to it because you hadn't added your primary Mailgun account yet. Now, as you do, everyone will show up. But, yeah, you're right. If it doesn't say anything next to them, you're gold until you can then add them back in. Hey, I had a question in Chris same space talking about, hey, Star.
Hi. Unfortunately, this brought up three questions. I'm so sorry. I'll try to be real quick.
This is what it's here for, right? This is what we're doing.
So I'm new to SAS, so I apologise. Most people may know the answer to this, but I know that we do rebuilding in SAS for these types of services. But is there a way to limit the number of emails they're allowed to send per month?
Yes, there is. I'll cover that one. Yes, no worries.
Okay, so that just came about. The second one that came about was the cloudflare. So because you guys are buying on name cheap, I'm buying my domains on GoDaddy. Do we have to actually transfer the domain ownership to cloudflare?
Great question. The only thing you need to do is change the name servers, right? So you log into GoDaddy, you click on Manage and then scroll down just past the bottom part of the fold on the left hand side. It's going to say something like, manage your name servers. So let me do the screen share thing again. When you add a domain to cloudflare, it's going to give you the name servers that you need to change. So you don't need to transfer the domain? Absolutely not. Just come over here to websites. You go add a site. We drop it in there. So it's Abcstaraccounts.com, whatever the domain is, right? As soon as you add it, it's going to give you the name servers that you need to do. So come to this screen, choose Free, click on Continue. The next screen gives you the name servers, right? Let's go back. Hang on a second. Did I miss a screen I think I did. ABC star. What did I have? There it is. Pending name server. There it is. I missed the screen. I think I clicked too quickly. Cloudflare give you the name servers that you need to use, right?
So in Namecheap, in GoDaddy, in whoever it is that you use, all you need to do is update the name servers. So let me show you what I mean. Star, that's in clients account.
I do know that part, walt part.
Okay, cool. So update the name server. Those are the two records you put. You got you don't need to transfer the domain, just update the name servers.
Oh, that's amazing. And are you guys paying for Cloudflare? Because you mentioned something about free.
No, we don't pay for Cloudflare. I think I've got three cloudflare accounts. I've got my own personal Cloudflare account. We've got a Comet Cloudflare account that's a company one. And we've got the Comet company account. That's all of our clients. We keep them separate just for protection, but we pay for none of it. I don't even know what the paid service of Cloudflare gives you. I just know that they provide an amazing service for free, and I'm sure that they're making a stack of money by people paying for stuff as they go. So nope, we don't pay for Cloudflare at all.
Okay, thanks. I'm so excited because I wanted to solve that www problem, but I thought I had to move everything and it would take days.
Www is an absolute pain in my butt. And I'll answer your question on the can you limit I'll do that as a separate recording, but let me just cover off the WWM because it is a pain in the butt. So what do I mean when you add a domain to comets, to Comet, when you add a domain into your GHL account, right? Settings, domains, add a domain, all that kind of stuff, you're adding in Abcmyaccount.com, right? Cool, great. The problem is, if somebody types in www.abcmyacount.com, it shows a four or four error. Like, this site doesn't exist. Oh, my God. Do you remember I said a little while ago, everything before the dot is counted as a subdomain, so replies, dot, whatever is a subdomain, and that actually includes www, believe it or not. So what do we do? How do we fix this stupid bloody issue? And it absolutely sucks. The way to do it is add the www dot to your GHL account as well. I'll show you what I mean. So I've got 704 wrapcitymail.com, right? That's my domain over in my GHL account. I'll go to a sub account. So I'll go to my demo company account here.
So this is the clients account that I'm showing. I'm adding a domain to their account. So I come down, I go to Settings, I go to Domains, and I add in whatever that one was, 704 rapcitymail.com. So seven, four rapcitymail.com, right? It's going to ask me to do this, which is easy enough to do. Create an a record. I probably already have it, but I just will make sure. No. Okay, so I need to create an A record. Okay, cool. So come into the domain, come to DNS, add record a record, drop an ad symbol and what GH will give you. Cool. Turn off the orange. We're good. We've added that domain. Happy days. Let's go. And Cheque. So click on add. Hey, guess what it added. Perfect. Yay. Awesome. Now I can link it to a funnel. I can do all that kind of stuff, right? But I've added that domain. But I haven't solved the www situation. And that's a pain in the butt. So this is how you do it. Add a second domain up here. And this one is www dot 704 wrapcitymail.com. Right now again, we've got the same A record.
It's the same numbers all the time. But over in here in Cloudflare, I need to add another record. Another A record. And instead of the at symbol, I need to type in www. Pop in the IP address, turn off the orange and I'm good. One more step to go. So I've added www as an extra domain, right? Done. One more step to go. We're still in the same client account. Go to URL redirects and redirect the www with no extension to my main account. 704 rapcitymail.com okay. If I can spell correctly. Okay, so in steps star add www as an additional domain, add the A name record in Cloudflare and then add a redirect so that anybody who types in www dot, theclients address is going to redirect to the Https secure site and you're not going to lose any traffic. Does that help?
Say again, Eric.
Why would you do it there instead.
Of just doing it directly in Cloud player? Because you can only set that up in Cloudflare. Great question. Great question. I have struggled to create the redirect rules in Cloudflare. So you need to do it in Cloudflare and you do it here, dynamic redirects. But here's the issue. You can only have five sorry, ten. You can only have ten redirects in Cloudflare. No matter how many domains you've got, you can only have ten. Now we've got 166 clients on there already. So I do it in comment. Sorry. I do it in GHL because I don't have any limits. Okay.
My follow up question to that is, does that take care of all the SaaS? So like starcad. comLEAD starcad.com. Subaccounts, does that take care of that or do I have to then put.
In yeah, what you need to do is you need to do wildcards so it's a redirect wildcard, so it's from that star wild card. And then it's going to be your primary domain. So you need to add this one as well with the star.
Okay. So that'll take care of any slash that I have on a page. Perfect.
All right, cool. So let me stop. This is a very long snippet. I apologise for that. But hopefully that was valuable for people as we sit in.
