How do I get my domain to work without the 'www' in Unbounce? (aka Naked Domains)

:x: The Problem

“I successfully set my domain up, but it’s not working when I type in the domain without the www.”

“I have my domain www.transfergrancanaria.es that is working but without www not.”

“How do I get my domain to work without the www?”

“Does Unbounce support naked domains?”


:white_check_mark: The Solution

What you’re looking for is actually called a Naked Domain and it’s pretty easy to implement. To set it all up, you’ll just need to do the following:

  1. Ensure your ‘www’ CNAME is set up
  2. Create an A Record with your hosting provider for your naked domain (eg. mysite.com)
  3. Configure the A Record towards 54.84.104.245

It’ll take a little while (up to 48 hours) for the change to propagate, but once it has the ‘naked’ domain will be directed to your ‘www.’ subdomain. It’s that easy!
