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.

NakedSSL is free for a single domain and they'll provide an A record/ IP address that you can add for the redirect that will work for your Podia site!

Step 1

Visit https://www.nakedssl.com, enter your domain name and click Run test. Once they verify it, click Let’s go.

Step 2

Step 6

Don’t worry about fine tuning! Just move on to the next page!

Step 7

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!
