How to create a subdomain


You can change the web address of your FeedsyWeb from yourname.feedsynews.com to news.yourdomain.com.au

Your subdomain is seen at the top of the browser window (next to the http:// bit) and it can be anything you want, not just news

Eg:

  • blog.yourdomain.com.au
  • newsroom.yourdomain.com.au
  • knowledge.yourdomain.com.au

These instructions are meant for someone who has access to the hosting of your domain name (web address).

This person will need to know what subdomain you want (eg news) and your current FeedsyWeb address.


Remove existing A Record (pre-October 2016 clients only)

  1. If you've already created an A Record for news.yourdomain.com.au
  2. Login to your DNS Zone Editor
  3. Find the A record and remove it.

Create a new subdomain (using CNAME)

  1. Login to your DNS Zone Editor
  2. For older customers with an existing A record
  3. Create a new CNAME record
  4. Name/subdomain: news (eg http://news.yourdomain.com.au)
  5. CNAME/hostname/target/value: the feedsynews.com address we gave you (eg yourname.feedsynews.com)


Check the CNAME and send to Feedsy

  1. Go thttps://www.whatsmydns.net/#CNAME
  2. Enter your news.yourdomain.com.au
  3. CNAME should be selected in the drop down list
  4. Click search
  5. Your Feedsy subdomain should appear (at least once): yourname.feedsynews.com
  6. If it does not appear: wait 15 minutes and try 1-5 again
  7. If it does appear: copy the URL in your browser (ie https://www.whatsmydns.net/#CNAME/news.yourdomain.com.au)
  8. Paste it into an email to support@feedsy.info letting us know your subdomain has been created
  9. Then wait for us to let you know when we have done our bit
