How to create a CNAME for your video landing pages

With BIGVU, you can create engaging video landing pages with one click. However, these landing pages will be part of the BIGVU domain.

A BIGVU landing page typically starts with bigvu.tv/pages. But you can modify and change this to adopt your domain using a CNAME!

There are two steps to complete this process:

  1. Set the CNAME record on your DNS provider

To add a CNAME for BIGVU pages, you first need to create a CNAME record on your DNS provider. This process is slightly different for each DNS, but you can easily find help by searching: "How to add CNAME record <DNS name>" on google

  • Here’s a brief guide to setting up a CNAME with GoDaddy:

  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio

  2. Click the 3 dots to the domain you want to update

  3. Select Edit DNS (You may need to scroll down to see Edit DNS)

  4. Select Add New Record

  5. From the Type menu, choose CNAME

  6. Enter the details for your new CNAME record

  7. In the Host field, type www if you’re using a root domain (i.e., www.mysite.com), or else, type the respective subdomain (i.e., elearning if you’re using elearning.mysite.com for your TalentLMS portal)

  8. In the Points to field, enter pages.bigvu.tv

  9. Leave the TTL setting to 1 hour.

  10. Click Save.

📢 Note:

1. Your changes may take up to 48 hours to go live.
2. For other websites, the process will be very similar.

  • Make sure to point the CNAME record to pages.bigvu.tv

  • If needed, please consult the FAQ by GoDaddy, NameCheap, Google Domains, Hostinger, or your chosen provider.

  • Congratulations! Now head over to Step 2: Add your domain to BIGVU.

2. Add your domain to BIGVU

  • Login to your account on BIGVU Desk at desk.bigvu.tv

  • (1) Click on the icon on the top right and (2) select Profile, as shown below

  • On your Profile, Click "Domain" (1) on the left menu pane. Then, enter the domain you created in your CNAME record, and click "Verify" (2)

Before you can use your domain, we will need to verify if everything is working properly. This process might take up to a day. You will be notified when the domain is verified and ready.

Once your domain is verified, any page you create will work with your domain instead of BIGVU's! 👏
