In this help article, you’ll learn how to configure your domain using Naked SSL so that you can make both the non-www and the www versions of your site available for your users.

Visit https://www.nakedssl.com, enter your domain name and click Run test. Once they verify it, click Let’s go.
Proceed with creating an account with them. It is free for one account!
Confirm your email address and move to Step 3.

Don’t worry about fine tuning! Just move on to the next page!
NakedSSL will generate an A record you now need to add to your domain provider/registrar, just like you added a CNAME record for Podia!
Adding an A record will depend on the domain registrar you are using. You can find the instructions for the most common domain registrars below, but give support a shout if you’re using any companies not listed below and we'll be happy to help!
Once you’re done adding the A record, go back to NakedSSL and click DNS updated!
And that’s it! If you added the records correctly you just need to wait a few minutes and things should start working soon!
If you need help don’t hesitate to reach out to support! 💻
Please reach out with a screenshot of the generated records from NakedSSL and the A records you added to your domain registrar so we could verify these for you!
