Head over to DNS within your domain provider.
Once you have the DNS section loaded, click on “Manage custom records”.
From there, you will be able to add custom records for your domain. Head back to stampede and copy the name from the first row. Open your domain provider back up and paste the name within the “Host name” section (Highlighted in Blue). Set the type to CNAME and leave the TTL (Time to Live) to the default value. Head back to the Stampede dashboard and copy the value data from the first row and paste this within the data section in your domain provider. (Highlighted in red). Please do this for all the rows from the Stampede dashboard.
Once you have completed that, click on save. Please do give it some time for your domain provider to save these records. Head back to the Stampede dashboard and you will be able to see the Authenticate Domain go from Pending to Success.
