Setting Up a Custom Domain supports independent writers and creators with the ability to use your own domain on our service. With a Pro subscription, you can connect a custom domain to each of the blogs on your account. Simply update your DNS settings and we'll take care of the rest — including SSL / HTTPS support.


To set up your domain, you'll create DNS records based on the type of domain you're using. This is usually done through your domain registrar (e.g. GoDaddy, Namecheap, Hover, etc.). There are two different kinds of domains you can set up:

If you are using a top-level domain like, you'll create these DNS records:

Record type Name Value / Data
A-record leave blank or @
AAAA-record (optional) leave blank or @ 2001:4800:7810:0512:500b:b07c:ff05:8178

If you are using a subdomain like or, you'll create this DNS record:

Record type Name Value / Data
CNAME yoursubdomain (e.g. www or blog)

Note: “” is the literal value you should insert. In other words, do not replace “me” with your username or otherwise alter it.

Go to your Blogs page, click Customize on the blog you want to add a custom domain to, and select the “Custom Domain” option. Enter your domain name (e.g. or and press the Save button.

It may take a little while for the DNS changes to update, so if your site isn't showing up right away, check again in a bit. You might also see a delay in your SSL certificate generating. When its ready, your site will automatically start redirecting to its secure version.
