Requirements

You need to set up three components:

  1. Forward "your-station-name.org" (the naked domain) to "www.your-station-name.org"
  2. Create a CNAME for www and point it to your-station-name.creek.fm
  3. Enter your domain as your-station-name.org (without the www) into your Creek station settings at the Manager Center.

Open the GoDaddy domain control panel

  1. Sign in to GoDaddy, and "launch" the Domains area. (See button.)
