This option allows users to publish their Maglr publications on their own custom domain names via their host or provider. With a custom domain, you are still able to select filters to show specific publications on that domain.
To use your own custom domain you have to configure it via the domain settings (settings > domain name > edit/create domain). Most of the times, your domain provider has a configuration panel where you can log in and set-up the configuration. A domain name must be registered to your own hosting party to be able to create a subdomain via Maglr.
Note: make sure that you link your Maglr publications to a subdomain (so publications.companyname.com), instead of your main domain (companyname.com).
Adjust domain DNS settings
You can adjust the DNS settings via the settings of your domain or hosting provider to ensure that the domain is forwarded to our servers. This referral is done with the help of a CNAME record. If you click on 'Connect your own domain', the custom DNS record will appear in the green highlighted box. Adjust these DNS record to send the domain to our server. Ask for help from your colleagues in the IT department to make sure that the settings will be configured correctly.
The domain forward in your settings panel will look something like this:
CNAME -> [yourcode].cname.maglr.com TTL 300
Warning! This is an example! Do NOT copy and paste the code above. Please look up your specific CNAME record through your domain settings in the dashboard.
Note: this configuration can take up to several hours for the settings to be fully implemented.
Complete the remaining steps
When your domain is configured, there are still two steps left to complete:
- Fill in the preferred domain name.
- Choose the domain filter. Select the publication(s) you want to be shown on your domain.
