I am trying to connect a repl to a domain that i have rented on Freenom, but all the tutorials are old and are not working for me. How do i do it?

Make sure your domain is on www,
so in your CNAME, have:

name: CNAME: www <dns>.repl.co

And then, for your domain you enter in (on repl.it):

www.<domain>

Replace <domain> with your actual domain.

Why do we have to use www? Freenom is bad

@Coder100 It's repl.it problem that you can't use any other register than CNAME, not Freenom's problem 🙄

no, i meant www as your domain, nothing about cname @BlueSky55

Hi,

to use a domain, I think you have to click this pencil button:

@Bookie0 Where can I find the CNAME?

@Xanilan Hmm not very sure, maybe the site where you bought the domain from lists the CNAME, when you purchase it? Also check out the tutorials in the messages further up! :)

Good luck! :D
