Step 1: Buy a domain
If you already have a domain name, skip to Step 2.
If you don't have a domain name, you'll need to buy one.
If you need help with buying a new domain name, please reach out to us at email@example.com
Step 2: Add your custom domain to Teachmore
To set up your custom domain, go to Settings → Website → Domains on your Teachmore dashboard
Now select Custom domain
Enter your domain name
Step 3: Add a CNAME record with your domain registrar
Login to your domain registrar and add a CNAME record for the domain you wish to use on Teachmore
This process is almost the same for different registrars
These are the values you should add:
Host/Name: www (if you'd like to use a root www.yourdomain.com)
study (for a subdomain like study.yourdomain.com - "study" can be replaced with any word you'd like such as: learn, courses, classes, etc.)
Value/Points To: sites.teachmore.com
Please Note: Some registrars require a period at the end of the link being pointed to. In that case, you would enter: sites.teachmore.com
Step 4: Confirm
After you've created your CNAME, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or live chat and include a screenshot of your DNS settings within your registrar/hosting company.
This will allow us to verify if everything is in place
Custom domain name is usually ready within 24-48 hours
For custom domains connected with 'www' as the CNAME:
If you would like to have access to your site via the non-www version of your address you will need to set up a redirect with your domain registrar in order to indicate that the non-www version should load the www version of your site.
If your domain provider requires an IP address for a redirect or forward, we highly recommend using a service like Naked SSL. It's free for a single domain and they provide an A record/ IP address that you can add for the redirect that will work for your Teachmore site!
