Setting up a custom domain

See how to use your own domain for your Prezly newsroom, e.g. press.yourbrandname.com

By default, your newsrooms are on the prezly.com domain. e.g. yourbrand.prezly.com. You can easily replace this with a custom link on a domain that you own. e.g. press.yourbrand.com.

Having your newsroom on your own domain looks more professional and passes on SEO value to your website.  If you want to do this for multiple clients or projects we also support wildcards, read more on this page

You just need a little help from your IT partner: 

On your end

Create a CNAME record (DNS setup) in your domain settings and point it to customers.prezly.com.

Don't worry if you don't understand what this means. Simply forward this article to your IT team and they can help you out. 

In Prezly 

Go to your Newsroom Settings page;

  1. Click Domain mapping 
  2. On that page, enter the correct domain name (e.g. press.yourbrand.com), then click on Link domain

Prezly will check if you have the correct domain settings and add them only if they are correct.

⚠️ Note: It can take a while for a new CNAME to start working.

💡 Pro tip: For every custom domain that will get mapped to Prezly, our system generates an SSL certificate to make the newsroom default to https. You don't need to do anything extra for this but can take a while (max 1h) before that will be applied.
