We've made it as easy as possible to connect your own custom domain to your club page and use it as your primary website, so that all your public links start with your own domain instead of scheduler.leaguelobster.com
First, you will need to buy your desired domain from a domain registrar, such as Godaddy or Namecheap.
Second, you'll want to enter your domain under your organization settings in LeagueLobster:
- Go to your club page (1) and click the Edit Organization button (2)
- On the edit organization page, enter your domain name and click Register:
Note: you'll need to subscribe to one of the PRO plans in order to use this feature
Third, you'll need go to your domain registrar and create a CNAME to point your domain to
Example 1: Godaddy
We'll walk through setting up a CNAME in Godaddy and Namecheap. Other domain providers will look similar. Let us know if you need any help.
Go to the Manage DNS page (look for the link under additional settings on the domain settings page)
Under Records, click ADD, select
CNAME for Type, enter
www for Host (or another subdomain you'd like to use) and
proxy.leaguelobster.com for Points to.
It'll look something like this.
Here, we also added forwarding from the (root) domain to www, so that when someone types in yourdomain.com, they get redirected to your site rather than getting an error.
Please note that you do not want to create a CNAME directly for your root domain, but rather follow our forwarding example. If you created a CNAME for your root domain, you would lose the ability to set up email addresses for your domain.
Example 2: Namecheap
On Namecheap, you'll want to go to the Advanced DNS section and create
- a CNAME Record
Host: www | Value: proxy.leaguelobster.com
- a URL Redirect Record
Host: @ | Value: https://www.yourdomain.com | Permanent (301)
*make sure to include the https:// or it won't accept it
**replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain
That's all there is to it. Note, it may take a few minutes for your domain to start working (you're expecting to see your club page at www.yourdomain.com by the end of this).
Let us know if you have any questions.
