How do I switch to my own purchased domain?

Domain forwarding is available to Clippings.me Premium members only.

In order to forward your domain, you'll need to set up a CNAME redirect which sends the 'www' of your new domain to secured.clippings.me.

You can access these settings in the domains/DNS section of your domain registrar.

Once you find the DNS Manager, you’ll want to forward the CNAME record for ‘www' through to secured.clippings.me (this won't work as a regular web address). It can take up to 48 hours for this change to take effect. View an interactive version of this guide here.

After you've done that, you can log into clippings.me, click the cog at the top right to open account settings, and then click 'Domain'. Enter your domain name (i.e.www.yourname.com) in there. With the CNAME correctly added to your domain, the system should allow you to save the new domain and your new address will be working.

You'll also want to make sure to setup your domain to work even if users don't type in 'www', please read our step by step guide here on how to do that.

If you run into any issues, please submit a ticket and we're happy to help!
