Edit an HTTPS record

You can edit the details for an existing HTTPS record in your DNS zone file at any time. HTTPS records explicitly tell the browser to make the connection over HTTPS, helping your site pages load faster and more securely.

Note: GoDaddy only supports HTTPS records in Alias mode, so the priority of the record is always set to 0.
  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select alt name for the image Domain Edit Options next to your domain and then select Edit DNS. You may need to scroll down to see the Edit DNS option.

  3. Select screenshot of the icon for editing a dns record Edit next to the HTTPS record you're editing.
  4. Edit the details for your HTTPS record:
    • Name: The hostname for the HTTPS record. Type @ to put the record on your root domain, or enter a subdomain prefix such as www.
    • Priority: The priority is always set to 0 because we currently only support HTTPS records in Alias mode.
    • Value: Enter a domain name the HTTPS record will point to.
    • TTL: Determines how long the server should cache information. The default setting is 1 hour.
  5. Select Save to complete your changes.

Most DNS updates take effect within an hour, but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
