Adding a Custom Domain

By the end of this article, we will have walked through the process of adding a custom domain within your Voomly course.

 

What you will need

Who can Add Custom Domains?

This option is available for Voomly Enterprise users. Each course will have its own unique Voomly subdomain that will look like this: CourseName.voomly.com

You can access this by opening your course, and then clicking on the Pages tab.

Step 1: Adding A Custom Domain to Your Course

Navigate to Courses-->Select edit on the right-hand side-->Settings. You will see the option to use your own site as the direct domain instead of using the default Voomly subdomain. You will see detailed instructions near the domain field.

 
 

 

Step 2: Setting Up Your CNAME Record in Your Domain Host

Once you have added your domain to your course, you will now need to verify this domain by adding a CNAME record to your domain's DNS settings. In this example, we are going to use GoDaddy but for other DNS host examples, you can go here in your course settings.

Once you are in your domain DNS, you want to make sure you add a new record.

  1. Name: www (you can also add any other subdomain that you would like ie: courses)
  2. Data/Value: 3uf2nzqbdx.voomly.com
  3. TTL: 30 minutes or referred to as 1/2 hour

Step 3: Verifying the Domain in Voomly 

Once you have added the domain to your Voomly course, the record will need some time to propagate. Please keep in mind that DNS records can take up to 48 hours to fully process. Once the domain has been verified, you will see a verified message under your course settings and your domain is ready to be used in your course.

Step 4: Making Your Domain the Primary Domain (Optional)

If you would like to solely use your custom domain for your course, it is important to make it your primary domain. This will allow for your customers to end up at your course home page by typing in your new domain in their browser ie: www.devonweber.me.
