Request a Custom Trainual Domain

Learn how to choose, purchase, and set a custom domain for your account.

Creating a custom domain (custom URL) for your Trainual account will help boost your brand identity and content credibility β€” for your employees and anyone outside your account that you share content with. Plus, it's much more memorable and fun than an autogenerated URL. πŸ˜‰ Find out how you can make that upgrade below! ⬇️



πŸ‘‰ Before you start:

  • Custom domains are only available for select subscriptions. Reach out to support directly to see if your plan qualifies. πŸ“§

  • Only Billing Admins and Admins can request this change.

  • This is a two-part setup guide that involves an external purchase.

2. Search for an available domain. πŸ‘€

Use the domain registrar's website to search for an available domain name that you'd like to purchase. Keep in mind that some popular domain names may already be taken, so you may need to be creative.


πŸ”₯ Tips

  • Keep it short and sweet.

  • Make it unique to your company.

  • Make it easy to remember.


3. Purchase the domain. πŸ’³

Once you've found an available domain name, you can add it to your cart and complete the checkout process to purchase it. That'll likely involve making some purchasing preferences and providing your billing information.

2. DNS and TXT set up. πŸ› οΈ

Trainual team members will work on your DNS (Domain Name System) and will get back to you with a name and value you'll need to create a TXT record on your end.


This is super easy! Let's say you used Google Domains to purchase your custom domain. Just head to your Google Domain account settings > locate the "DNS" tab and find the "Custom records" section.



πŸ“ Please note: Each domain registrar will have a different process for creating a TXT record. Reach out to their support team or look through their docs if you feel stuck.


Once your DNS is officially set up, we will verify that everything is active on our end and that you're good to enjoy your new custom domain for Trainual! Great work. πŸŽ‰
