Custom domain for multiple newsrooms/clients

Set up DNS records to allow your team members to create unlimited newsrooms with a white-labeled URL

In some cases (agencies, enterprises with multiple brands, short-term campaigns), you want to easily set up a white-labeled (own domain) newsroom without contacting your IT team to update DNS records.

To work around this, you can use wildcard records that point all subdomains to customers.prezly.com.

Example - Fashion Agency 

The name of your agency is "Fashion Agency," and you have a domain on which you want to host all your newsrooms.

Now for the main agency, you want to use www.fashionagency-pressroom.com and have it display a list of logos/clients. Every client will get their own newsroom with a dedicated URL such as dior.fashionagency-pressroom.com, gucci.fashionagency-pressroom.com, or chanel.fashionagency-pressroom.com.

Step 1

Contact us via chat or email at support@prezly.com to let us know that you will need Wildcard CNAME support enabled for your license, only site-specific custom domains are available otherwise.

Step 2

For this to happen, you need to set a CNAME record for www.fashionagency-pressroom.com.

See instructions

Step 3

A wildcard needs to be installed that points *.fashionagency-pressroom.com to customers.prezly.com. This way, team members can easily add new newsrooms and link up.

To verify the setup, use a tool like MxToolbox: 

 
 

 

  1. Can I still use my previously set up custom domains if I change to wildcard support now?

    Yes! They can coexist, so deciding to go this route after you've already used single-site custom domain setups is NOT an issue 😁
  2. Do I have to update them?

    No! Already set up single site CNAMEs are maintained. You CAN change them if you want to reflect the new wildcard setup though but it's not a must.
