How to setup a reverse proxy for Webflow with Connectify

Please follow these step-by-step instructions.


This process can take between 10 to 15 minutes and may cause a brief downtime for your website, due to DNS changes which can take up to 24 hours.

Step 1

Creating a sub-domain

The first step requires creating a sub-domain to host your Webflow project on.

For example webflow.{{yourdomain}}.com

Step 2

Adding your sub-domain to Webflow

Head over to Webflow > Your project settings > Publishing and add the new sub-domain.

Step 3

Adding Webflow required DNS records

Add the required Webflow DNS settings (A and CNAME records) for your sub-domain to successfully connect it with Webflow.

Step 4

Check if it's connected and publish

Head back to Webflow and check if the sub-domain is successfully connected. Once the process is completed, publish the project.

Step 5

Removing the root domain

The next step is to remove the root domain from your Webflow project.

Step 6

Setting up the root domain

Add the root domain to Connectify, and navigate to the domain settings by clicking on 'Manage domain.' Run the DNS setup guide and add the required DNS records to your root domain. The existing Webflow DNS records for this domain might interfere with this action.

If so, delete the old records and add the new required records again.

Please note: DNS changes can take up to 24 hours to be applied. We suggest setting the TTL (Time To Live) of the DNS records to 1 hour or lower to speed up the process.

Step 7

Choose a plan

Simply select a monthly or annual plan and proceed to the payment process.

Step 8

Create the first path

Since the Webflow project is not yet visible on the root domain, we're going to fix that by adding a new path. Click on 'Create a path', choose a name (for example, 'Root'), fill in '/' for the path, and point the direction to the created sub-domain from step 1.


Step 9

Checking if it works

Use your browser to navigate to your root domain. If you have followed all the steps above, you should now be able to see your Webflow website. If the website is visible, it indicates that the reverse proxy is working correctly. Should you encounter any problems, we've got you covered. Please contact our support team.

Step 10

Take full control

It's time to take full control of your domain. You can easily connect new systems within the same URL structure by creating new paths.

Do you have an external vacancy service? Simply create a new path named 'Vacancies.' For example, the path could be '/vacancies,' and you can point the destination towards the current URL of the vacancy system, for example, vacancies.{{yourdomain}}.com, especially if it runs on a sub-domain.
