With BIGVU, you can create engaging video landing pages with one click. However, these landing pages will be part of the BIGVU domain, and start with bigvu.tv/pages. That can be easily changed into your domain by using a CNAME!
There are two steps to complete this process:
1. Setting the CNAME record on your DNS provider
In order 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:
Sign in to your GoDaddy account and go to the My Products tab.
Click the domain you want to update.
Click Domain Settings.
In the Additional Settings section, click Manage DNS.
On the DNS Management page, in the Records section, click Add.
From the Type drop-down list, choose CNAME.
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).
In the Points to field, enter pages.bigvu.tv
Leave the TTL setting as 1 hour.
Note: 1. Your changes may take up to 48 hours to go live.
Make sure to point the CNAME record to pages.bigvu.tv
Congratulations, now all that's left is letting us know we can use your domain! If needed, please consult the FAQ by GoDaddy, NameCheap, Google Domains, Hostinger or your domain provider of your choice.
2. Add your domain to BIGVU
login to your account on BIGVU Desk at desk.bigvu.tv
Press on the icon on the top right, as shown below
Enter your Profile area, and then "Domain" from the left menu
Enter the domain you created in your CNAME record, and click "verify"
Before you can use your domain, we will need to verify 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!
