How do I set up my custom domain?

To start using a custom domain with your Fullscreen Direct account, you first need to point your custom domain to Fullscreen Direct’s servers.

Log in to your domain registrar’s website, where you purchased your domain name. You will want to manage your domain’s DNS records.

To point your custom domain at Fullscreen Direct, you must do so via a subdomain (i.e. www.example.com or blog.example.com). To set up a subdomain, add a CNAME record that points to domains.fullscreendirect.com to your DNS zone file.

Note: if you set up a www subdomain, you will also need to set your domain’s root (i.e. example.com) A Record to point to 54.208.162.84, so that proper redirects can take place.

It may take several hours for this new domain configuration to take effect worldwide. If you’ve updated your nameservers, it may take 24 to 72 hours for the new configuration to take effect.

After you’ve pointed your custom domain name, go back to your account’s Account Settings modal. Go into the Hosted Site section and turn on the option to “Use a custom domain.” Type in your custom domain and click “Save.”
