Hey Michelle, I have another question. My husband is trying to setup a CNAME
k1._domainkey.glendakharrison.com with value dkim.mcsv.net.

i believe the paragraph below explains the problem.

DKIM requires underscores in the CNAME file. However, in the past, DNS didn't allow for underscores and some registrars still do not allow them to appear in the CNAME file. If you receive this type of error when you set up DKIM, the issue is on the registrar's side. We recommend either of these three options: contact your registrar for assistance, set up a secondary custom domain with a registrar that allows underscores, or switch DNS providers.

Hello,

Homesteads DNS setting do not allow cnames with special character. The only recommendation I can provide to add this cname is to route the domain through Cloudflare to use records with special characters. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/can-i-secure-my-homestead-website-with-https

Michelle, this warning is the first thing that I see in the instructions you sent. We are on website builder. Is this warning ok to ignore? Or is there another way?


For SITEBUILDER PLUS ONLY. Do not use if you have Website Builder.

If you have a Simplestore using Sitebuilder Plus, DO NOT PROCEED WITH THIS PROCEDURE.

It mentions this because WebsiteBuilder has its own ssl and does not require cloudflare but you can ignore this message this is only for simplstore on Sitebuilder plus. You're okay to proceed.
