Setting Up A Subdomain

Rob Howard Updated by Rob Howard

To enable DailyStory to host your subdomain, e.g., please follow the instructions below.

You will need to talk with someone on your IT team or with your hosting company to complete these steps.

And please note that DailyStory only supports subdomains for enterprise customers.

  1. Create a CNAME OR A Record

Create a DNS CNAME record that points to

NAME                    TYPE   VALUE
-------------------------------------------------- CNAME

Or, create an A record that points to

NAME                    TYPE   VALUE
-------------------------------------------------- A
  1. Verify the DNS change

It can take several hours for a DNS change to propagate. You can check the status of your DNS entry using DNS lookup tools, such as Uptrends, MX Toolbox, and others.

Using these tools will enable you to see if your new DNS entry is properly resolving to DailyStory.

  1. Notify us

Once your DNS record is configured, please tell your customer success manager. You will need to provide them with your domain entry, e.g.

There is some network configuration that must be done by DailyStory for our servers to allow your subdomain.

  1. Automatic certificate creation

Once your domain is configure we'll automatically generate a certificate. A security certificate ensures that pages hosted by DailyStory are secure.

  1. Configure your subdomain

Once your customer success manager has verified that your subdomain is configured, log into your DailyStory account and navigate to Account Settings > Advanced Settings > Subdomain:

Enter the subdomain and a URL to redirect to if there is a problem on the subdomain, such as when a page cannot be found.

Landing Pages that you create in DailyStory will now automatically use your subdomain.
