How to set up your branded domain

 

Branded domains such as c2m.tl, available on pro and enterprise accounts, are a great way to boost brand recognition.

 
 
 

Don’t own a domain yet?

 
 

Branded domains are purchased separately using a domain name registrar such as Gandi or Namecheap. Although Lickstats doesn’t sell domains, we will be happy to help you purchase one! A tool we love to find amazing domains is domainr.com.

 

Own a domain and wish to set it up on Lickstats?

 

STEP 1 - Decide if you wish to dedicate your whole domain (example: c2m.tl) or a subdomain (example: go.dinerenblanc.com) to Lickstats. Dedicating your whole domain is great to keep URLs short but you will not be able to use your domain for anything else such as email or hosting a website.

 

STEP 2 - Log in to the dashboard of your registrar.

Please note that these steps vary from registrar to registrar. If you need help, don’t hesitate to reach out.

 

STEP 3 (whole domain) - Get in touch with us. We need to set up your custom nameservers at our end before you can set up your domain. Once you have received your custom nameservers, navigate to the Nameservers page of your domain settings, click on External, enter the nameservers we provided and click on Save.

 

STEP 3 (subdomain) - Navigate to the DNS Records page of your domain settings and click on Add.

 

STEP 3 (subdomain, continued) - Select the CNAME Type, choose a subdomain Name and enter cname.lickstats.com in Hostname, then click on Create.

 

STEP 4 - Wait for DNS propagation, which usually takes an hour or two but can take up to 24 hours for some domains. A great tool to monitor DNS propagation is dnschecker.org.

Your domain should point to 159.203.152.58 or 138.68.197.93.

 

STEP 5 - Once DNS propagation has completed, get in touch with us and we will add your domain to your account.
