- Go to your Newsroom Settings page;
- Click Domain mapping
- On that page, enter the correct domain name (e.g.
press.yourbrand.com), then click Link domain.
Prezly will check if you have the correct domain settings and add them only if they are correct. Please note it can take a while for a new CNAME to start working.
💡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.
