EventCreate makes it easy to add a custom domain (such as myevent.com) to your event website. Here’s how:

1. Complete the form. Go to the Event Dashboard > Setup > Website > URL to confirm domain ownership and process payment for your connection and SSL certificate.

Please note: if you are integrating a custom domain with an existing domain (like your company or organization site), we recommend the following format - yourevent.yourcompany.com

2. Create a custom CNAME record. This one's a little technical, but really easy (we promise).

  • Go to your DNS provider’s website (e.g. GoDaddy or Cloudflare)

  • Create a CNAME record for your custom domain 

  • Point your new CNAME record to domainsecure.eventcreate.com

Example: if you'd like to link to www.mydomain.com, head over to your DNS and add a new CNAME record "www" which points to domainsecure.eventcreate.com.

3. Redirect the root domain to the subdomain. You’ll need to setup “Forwarding” on your domain provider such as GoDaddy. This enables a naked domain (ie: yourdomain.com) to forward to www.yourdomain.com.

  • In your Manage DNS settings screen with your domain provider, find an option for domain forwarding. GoDaddy's section is called “Forwarding.”

  • If using GoDaddy, click on ADD to open up the forwarding options. Make sure that your domain forwards to the ‘www’ version of your domain, and that the forward type is a Permanent 301 forward.

  • When you have finished, click Save.

The domain forwarding setup may vary depending on your provider. Please contact them directly if you have any questions.

Please note: We only allow CNAMEs as we don’t support a fixed IP address for custom domains.
