Please follow these instructions in order to set up a branded or custom URL for your publication. Failure to adhere to the order of steps below could result in delays. 1) To set up a custom domain for a publication, you should first register your domain. (in case you already purchased a domain, please ignore #1) 2) Please note that you must establish a subdomain. A subdomain is the part before the period (see below examples).
Custom domain = Subdomain = www OR Lookbooks OR magazines

i.e. or
3) Add a CNAME record that associates your subdomain with your Readz publication.
Log in to your domain registrar and find the section that allows you to edit and/ or create CNAME Records. This is often done from a settings panel with a name such as "Edit DNS" or "Zone File Control."

For instance, if your custom URL is decided to be, than the CNAME record would be: CNAME TTL=86400 (seconds, which = 1 day)

Do not add http or https to the CNAME entry.

4) In the Readz' Preferences page, add your URL to the "Custom URL" input. See screenshot below.

Please give it up to 12 hours for the custom domain to become active and populate across the CDN.
If you want to set up a URL redirect (301), check the following steps below.

1) To support users browsing to your root domain, you should set up a 301-redirect to -- quite literally -- redirect users searching for your to the subdomain. For instance, if the subdomain is, then you would set up 301 redirect from to 2) You should setup your root domain A record to point at your URL forwarding service. Never point an A record at any IP address associated with Readz, as all of our IP addresses are served dynamically by our content delivery network, so that all users are served data from the nearest location based on different IP addresses. Readz does not have a service capability for fixed IP addresses.
