How can I use my own domain or subdomain?

Learn how to run Fangage on your own custom (sub)domain!

You will need to contact us for this as this currently requires manual action.

Follow the following steps to link your own (sub)domain name to your website. Please choose if you want to link a full domain or only a subdomain.


For full domain names, follow these steps:

  • Be sure you've activated a paid Fangage plan (Star or Legend). 

  • Let us know which domain name you want to use via the chat or by sending us an email at support@fangage.com. In case you haven't registered your domain name yet, be sure you do that first through a recommended registrar.

  • We'll configure that the domain name can be connected to your website and send you a confirmation of that.

  • When you received the confirmation, go to the DNS settings of your domain name and add an A-record named '@' with the value that we're going to provide you. 

  • In addition, add an A-record named "www" with the same value.
  • Let us know via chat or email that you've added the A-records so we can activate the domain name.

  • After we've activated the domain name, you can see an SSL warning that will automatically be resolved in 1 or 2 hours.

  • Everything is done, you can start promoting your website!

For subdomains, follow these steps:

  • Be sure your website is on a Star or Legend plan.

  • Let us know which subdomain you want to use via the chat or contacting us at support@fangage.com. In case you haven't registered your domain name yet, be sure you do that first through a recommended registrar (such as Google Domains).

  • We'll configure that the subdomain can be connected to your website and send you a confirmation of that.

  • When you received the confirmation, go to the DNS settings of your domain name and add a CNAME record with the name of your subdomain (for example: 'fans' if you want to use fans.yourdomain.com), with value 'custom.fangage.com'.

  • Let us know via chat or email that you've added the CNAME-records so we can activate the subdomain.

  • After we've activated the subdomain, you can see an SSL warning that will automatically will be fixed in 1 or 2 hours.

  • Everything is done, you can start promoting your website!

Words of wisdom: 

  • If you have a site already, you can run Fangage on a subdomain. Make sure to add a button on your main site which can redirect to your Fangage page.
