If you are a Pro or Premium plan subscriber to Prowly, you are able to redirect your brand journal to your own subdomain, e.g. press.yourcompanyname.com.
In order to redirect your Brand Journal to your own subdomain:
- Go to the domain provider website (where you bought your domain) and log in to the domain management panel
- Find DNS configuration section
- Add a new address record (i.e. subdomain) for your existing root domain, e.g. press.yourcompanyname.com under yourcompanyname.com. Your Brand Journal will be available at press.yourcompanyname.com.
- Set type of new address record (i.e. subdomain) to CNAME
