Creating a Custom Domain

Updated 3 weeks ago by Becky

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a custom domain. Please note: This is an advanced feature, and requires that you are comfortable with making changes to your domain's DNS records. You will need to know your website hosting information. This is using GoDaddy as an example - other hosting sites will be similar.

Creating a Custom Domain:

Within the Church Online Platform:

  1. From the admin, go to “Settings”
  2. Click on the “Custom Domain” tab
  3. Enter the new custom domain name and save.

Within your hosting provider:

  1. Find your DNS Manager
  2. Add a CNAME

Host: Custom domain (ex: live.example.church)

Points to: ing.churchonline.org (pointing to this url will provide free SSL)

TTL (Time to Live): Whatever your timeframe is
