Publish on your own domain name 

If you publish on your own domain the steps you need to take are the same as publishing on a sub domain.  However it is not possible to add a CNAME to a root domain. Therefore the final steps are a little bit different


First go to the projects screen first and find your page there. Click on "Actions" and then on "Publish"

If your campaign is not yet published, publish it first by clicking on the "Publish project" button.

After you have published your page you will see a field where you can insert your own custom domain name or sub domain name.

First you insert the root domain with www. in front of it. Then you also need to add the root domain without www.

You will now see the following screen.

You will now see the right values you need to insert in your hosting provider. 

The root domain will always need an A-record pointed to

The www. will have a CNAME pointed to your fastpages page.

Please note that SSL will not work straight away, after your domain or sub-domain is resolved correctly. You will have to request an SSL certificate if you want to host your page over https. You can only request it here and not somewhere else since your domain is now pointed to our server:  


Please note: we get a lot of people requesting support for DNS in 95% of these cases the problem is within the DNS settings. We cant change these settings for you. Please make sure that the "current value" is the same as the "required value" if this is not the case then your settings are probably wrong. To double check this, please visit insert your domain and check if it is set correctly.
