Setting up a Custom Domain

Looking to set up a custom domain for your church calendar?  Below are the instructions for setting up a Custom Domain on your domain registrar's website.  

Custom domain settings provide a way for you to completely hide the view-events.com domain from your site visitors. For example, instead of having your site appear at http://firstanychurch.view-events.com, you could point your own domain to your calendar and have your visitors go directly to http://calendar.firstanychurch.com.

Below are the instructions to set up your own custom domain. Keep in mind, only your domain administrator will be able to do this and you must do this on your domain website BEFORE you can set up the link on My Church Events.

Step 1 - Setting up your DNS on your Domain Registrar's Website

Find the control panel on your domain registrar's website and locate your DNS (Domain Name System) settings. In order to link your calendar, follow the instructions below to enter your 'CNAME':

Add a CNAME record with these values:

Host: [your subdomain] e.g. calendar.firstanychurch.com
Data: view-events.com

Example:

If you run into other difficulties, contact your registrar directly and they can assist you.

Note: DNS updates can take up to 48 hours to fully propagate on the web depending on your provider. We recommend you wait at least an hour for your DNS to activate before proceeding to Step 2.

Step 2 - Link your Domain to your My Church Events account

Click the + Add a custom domain link below Your Assigned URL:
