How to redirect the newsroom to your own domain or subdomain

Set up a unique address for your newsroom.

If you are a Professional plan subscriber to Prowly, you are able to redirect your Newsroom to your own subdomain, i.e. press.yourcompanyname.com, or root domain, i.e. yourcompanyname.com. 

In order to redirect your Newsroom to your own subdomain:

  1. Go to the domain provider website (where you bought your domain) and log in to the domain management panel
  2. Find the DNS configuration section
  3. Add a new address record (i.e. subdomain) for your existing root domain, e.g. press.yourcompanyname.com under yourcompanyname.com. Your Newsroom will be available at press.yourcompanyname.com.
  4. Set type of new address record (i.e. subdomain) to CNAME
  5. Set the redirection address to: cname.prowly.com
