Pointing A Domain To Your Heroku App

Posted By Weston Ganger

I was having trouble with my domain being redirected to my app. At the time I had my domain from GoDaddy although I think it applies to any DNS.

Here are the steps to set it up.

# Run this command in your terminal
heroku domains:add www.example.com

Then go to your DNS records on GoDaddy or your Domain Name Registrar.

Create a CNAME record:
Host: www
Points To: example.herokuapp.com

Also add a forwarding record to redirect example.com to www.example.com
