Configuring a custom Email and Website Domain

Please note use of this feature requires the Whitelabel Domain and/or Whitelabel Email Domain Organization Power-Up. This will also require a third party domain provider which is priced separately. 

By default, event websites and automatic emails will display the PheedLoop name in the URL. This can be changed with a custom url through a domain provider. Anytime an attendee accesses the event website or receives an automated email, the URL and/or email address will appear as long as it is registered.

In order for this to work, the event administrator will need to purchase a domain from a domain provider first. Administrators must have access to the domain provider to edit DNS records. This article will assume that this is set up and ready to use.

Configuring the Domain in PheedLoop

As mentioned, both the website and email domains are adjustable.

To Edit the Website Domain

  1. From the Event Dashboard, select your account email on the top right corner and navigate to Settings
  2. Navigate to Domains > Website Domain
  3. Enter the domain URL under Custom Domain
  4. Select Save Changes
  5. Select Refresh to receive the CNAME records for DNS

To Edit the Email Domain

  1. From the Event Dashboard, select your account email on the top right corner and navigate to Settings
  2. Navigate to Domains > Email Domain
  3. Enter the domain URL under Custom Domain
  4. Select Save Changes
  5. Select Refresh to receive the CNAME records for DNS

The domain should now update and the Domain Status should read Configured. If no changes are apparent, please select Refresh next to Remove. 

Setting up DNS Records

Once the domain configuration is successful, a message will appear at the bottom of the page telling you to set the following DNS records on your domain. You will need to copy the CNAME into your domain provider. 

  1. From the Domain Dashboard page, navigate to the DNS page
  2. Create a new record
  3. Under Type, select CNAME
  4. Under Name, copy and paste the Record name/host from PheedLoop’s event dashboard
  5. Under Value, copy and paste the Record value from PheedLoop’s event dashboard

Domain changes can take a few minutes to configure. Once done, the  Domain Status should read Complete.
