Configure a Domain Already Registered

The custom domain name feature allows you to setup your Nabble application with a domain name you've already registered through another registrar, such as GoDaddy.

Follow these steps to setup a custom domain name

1
Login to your Domain Registrar account
Please go to your registrar's website (e.g., GoDaddy, Register.com, 1and1.com, etc.) and login.
2
Navigate to the domain's DNS Management page
You are looking to modify the CNAME-Record of your domain, NOT the name servers -- You need to leave your name servers configured with your existing registrar.
3
Setup CNAME-Record
If you are trying to setup a domain like www.mydomain.com, then you should set the CNAME-Record as follows:
HOST POINTS TO
www n3.nabble.com
If you are trying to setup just a sub-domain of your domain (e.g., myforum.mydomain.com), then you should set the CNAME-Record just for this sub-domain.
HOST POINTS TO
myforum n3.nabble.com

Note: It can take up to 48 hours (although usually less) for these DNS changes propagate through the internet.
