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 New Record.
- Select HTTPS from the Type menu.
- Enter the details for your new HTTPS record:
- Name: The hostname or prefix of the record, without the domain name. Enter @ to put the record on your root domain, or enter a 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 (Time to Live): The amount of time the server should cache information before refreshing. The default setting is 1 hour.
- (Optional) Select Add More Records to add multiple DNS records at the same time. If you change your mind, select Delete to remove any records that haven't been saved yet.
- Select Save to add your new record. If you added multiple records at the same time, select Save All Records.
Most DNS updates take effect within an hour but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
