Setting Up a Custom Domain
With your Academy of Mine account comes your domain of companyname.aomlms.com--however, as part of the branding of their platform, many of our clients prefer to switch to a custom domain name that they might have newly bought or have had their old platform running on. We are happy to help you make the switch to that custom domain! This article will walk you through how to reach out to us and the steps you need to take on your end so we can assist you with setting up your platform on a custom domain name.
Step 1: Purchase a new domain from any domain registrar (for instance, godaddy.com etc.)
Step 2: Note: this step is optional but recommended by AOM. If you don't want to use Cloudflare as your DNS host for any reason, you may skip this step and proceed to the next one.
We prefer clients to get a FREE account with a DNS host called cloudflare.com. Cloudflare provides a lot of additional security benefits, DDOS protection, captcha rules and more for free and is our recommended choice of DNS host. You can create a free account here: https://dash.cloudflare.com/sign-up
