Create your own URL / domain for the event website

Info.jpg

You want to change the default link of your event website (EVENTNAME.evenito.site)? We offer you the possibility to create an individual URL for the event website. This can be, for example, "events.COMPANYNAME.ch". After that, you can use it for all events in evenito as follows: EVENTNAME.events.COMPANYNAME.ch.

Instead of a sub-domain, you can also create a new domain, e.g. eventsabc.com. An event would then have the following URL in our tool: EVENTNAME.eventsabc.com. The further process remains the same: 

The domain used must start with *. and be linked to our CNAME so that the content is displayed on the (sub-)domain.

evenito CNAME: evenito.site

Example: 

Sub-domain

You want to use the sub-domain events.dieschweizerfirma.ch at evenito. Then set up this sub-domain and point the following URLs to the CNAME evenito.site: 

events.dieschweizerfirma.ch (optional)

*.events.dieschweizerfirma.ch (required)

Domain

You want to use the domain eventsabc.ch with evenito. Then set up this domain and point the following URLs to the CNAME evenito.site: 

eventsabc.ch (optional)

*.eventsabc.ch (required)

After you have made the CNAME entry for the domain, please inform our support. Support, they will help you to add the URL to the organisation.

Please note

The (sub-)domain must be generated by you and must not have any content behind it as well as not be a subpage/extension of an existing website.

 

Why do I have to register a domain with *.?

The * is called a wildcar and basically stands for "everything".

Say *.evenito.site can be this.evenito.site or this.evenito.site or which.evenito.site, etc.

If, on the other hand, you have a URL without the *, then this is 1 URL, which can only be used for 1 website at a time. As an example: EVENTNAME.evenito.site can only be EVENTNAME.evenito.site and not this.evenito.site or similar. This also means that you can't use the same domain for a different website without taking down the event website currently published under that domain.
