How to set up a custom domain for your digital editions and Folios

Edition digital enables you to set up and have your digital editions available at your own custom domain. This will benefit the SEO of your digital editions and further improve your brand’s recognition. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Make sure that you plan includes the custom domain feature. If it doesn’t, don’t worry. That can be quickly resolved by upgrading your plan: Navigate to Administration, click Upgrade your plan, and select the Custom domain feature.
  2. Choose a domain name registrar to find and buy a domain name that's available. If you already own a domain that you can use that’s even better.
  3. Contact us at support@editiondigital.com and let us know what domain you would like to use and which Edition Digital account the domain should be assigned to.
  4. We will reply in a timely fashion, letting you know that everything is ready for you to create a CNAME DNS record with the value firestorm.editiondigital.com, which is the address of our server.

At this stage your custom domain is set up, but it’s not been assigned to any digital edition yet, so let’s have a look at how to do that:

  1. Access your Edition Digital account and locate the edition that you want to be available at your custom domain.
  2. Click the Edit button (at the bottom of the edition’s card) and locate the Custom domain drop-down menu.
  3. Expand the menu and select your custom domain.
  4. Finish by clicking Save at the bottom.
  5. In case you are making these edits to a Live edition, you will also need to click Publish your changes after you click Save.

At the same time, the domain can be assigned to your Folio:

  1. First navigate to Administration and Folios.
  2. Click Edit Folio (at the at the far right of the selected folio’s name) and locate the Custom domain drop-down menu.
  3. Expand the menu and select your custom domain.
  4. Finish by clicking Save at the bottom.
