Custom Domains On GroovePages
GrooveFunnels has recently updated the way you connect and publish your custom domains on GroovePages.
You no longer need to create your Cloudflare account as you will be using Groove’s cloudflare account.
If you followed my previous training and published your domain using Cloudflare, you don’t have to make any changes – those domains are still available within GroovePages.
With your free GrooveFunnels account, you can add up to 3 custom domains in GroovePages.
To have unlimited custom domains, you will need to be on the GrooveFunnels lifetime package – this will allow you to connect as many domains as you like.
1. Locate Domains In GrooveFunnels
- When you first login to groove, click on the burger icon on the top right of the dashboard
- Click on My account” and click on the “domains tab”
2. Click on Add Domain
- Domain URL: Enter your domain without the https so in your case, it would be yourdomain.com
- Which app would you like to use this URL for? you can have this domain connected to Groovepages, GrooveSell for custom domain checkout URL or GrooveSell for link tracking. Select Groovepages
- Under would you like us to host your domain for you? Select “yes please”
- Press save.
3. Change Name Servers At Domain Registry
The next page will provide you with instructions on how to connect your domain to Groove.
- You will need to login to your domain registry and update your name servers Groove’s name server
- Your domain registry is wherever you bought your domains – it could namecheap, godaddy etc
- If you don’t know who your domain registry is, you can do a search on WHOIS and it will tell you where your domain is held
- If you bought your domains at namecheap, once you login you can find your domains in “Domains list” > “Domains tab” > in “Name servers” click on the drop down arrow and select custom DNS.

How To Connect Your Custom Domain To GroovePages Tutorial
NOTE: Many people have mentioned to me that they couldn’t get their domains live on GroovePages. If you’re using GroovePages or GrooveFunnels Cloudflare account (not with Cloudflare directly):
- DELETE ANY DNS RECORDS that link to your domain registry ie namecheap / godaddy etc
- DELETE any IP addresses that are not related to GroovePages as they may be your domain registry’s IP address.
- WHERE TO DELETE THIS? Watch at the above video at time stamp 0:3:07
- Then hit PUBLISH and your domain will be live!
