Setting up a custom domain
Premium users can use their own domain to display their Exposure profile and posts. Here’s an example: http://photos.luke.so.
To enable a custom domain for your account, follow the steps below. If you get stuck, don’t worry; we’re just an email away.
- Register the domain you’d like to use. We recommend Gandi or iwantmyname.
- For subdomains (e.g. photos.your-site.com or www.your-site.com), you’ll need to add a CNAME record and point it to: domains.exposure.co (root domains [e.g. your-site.com] are not currently supported natively, but you can add an A record pointed to 188.8.131.52 to have your root domain redirected to www.example.com)
- Enter your domain name in the Custom Domain field on the Preferences page and hit Save. (Just the domain, though, e.g. your-site.com and not http://your-site.com/)
- That’s it! Once DNS propagates, you should be able to load your Exposure profile at whatever domain you just entered.
You’ll still manage your user account, plus create, edit, and delete posts from Exposure.co (this is because of the way our post editor currently works.) To manage your posts and user account, head to https://exposure.co/.
