Custom Domains are a Society feature! Make sure you're subscribed in order to set up your custom domain.
If you want to set up a custom domain for your courses, it's a good idea to first familiarize yourself with what all that means! Roots, domains, subdomains... it can all get a little confusing. If you already know all about this, skip to the "Setting up Your Custom Domain" section.
Your Current Profile & Course URLs
As it is now, your courses are using the CourseCraft domain name. Your profile URL looks a little something like this:
And the URL for one of your courses looks like this:
Using a Custom Domain
If you own your own domain name already, you can start using that domain for your courses too! You'll choose a subdomain and have all your courses under that. With a custom domain set up, your profile URL will look something like this:
The "school" part is the subdomain for your courses and the "sarafunduk.com" part is your domain name. Your course URLs will look something like this:
Sounds pretty good right? So how do you set this up?
Setting up Your Custom Domain
- Go to your Creator Profile under the Account menu in the upper right.
- Under Customize Profile URL click the Custom Domain Setup button.
- Find the instructions for your specific provider during the setup process or just use the general instructions. They'll show you how to set up a new CNAME record for your courses that points to
ssl.coursecraft.net. (Ex: school.sarafunduk.com)
- Enter your domain in the field and click save. It usually only takes a few minutes to set things up. You'll see the status change from "pending" to "active" on your creator profile settings.
- Next you'll want to make sure you have custom URLs for your courses set up.
- Head to the promote section of your course and edit your course URL.
- Start pointing people to your new URLs! The old ones will still work so you don't have to worry about broken links if you've already shared your course.
