PeopleVine

How do I use a custom domain?

PeopleVine allows you to host your domain name and sub-domain names within our environment in an effort to drive traffic based on lead source and/or bring your web presence into our host free environment.

Ready To Go Domain Names

We allow you to setup domain names under the following URLs and they work right away!  

  • ___________.clients.peoplevine.com
  • ___________.websitevine.com
  • ___________.wsvine.com
  • ___________.contentvine.net
  • ___________.contentvines.com

All you need to do is setup the domain name in PeopleVine and it's up and running.  
(Go to Company Menu > URLS & Domains > Domains)

 

Setup A Custom Domain Name

But we believe in providing a clean experience for your consumers, so we've made it possible to host your domain name directly in PeopleVine.  Follow these steps to setup custom branded domain names such as yourcompany.com and content.yourcompany.com within PeopleVine.

In order to setup your domain name, you must have access to your DNS provider, such as GoDaddy or Network Solutions.  You would need to modify your DNS with the following settings.  If you are unfamiliar on how to do this, please contact PeopleVine Client Services for assistance.

 

Setup yourcompany.com (aka naked domain)

  1. Login to your DNS Provider and go to Manage DNS
  2. Create a new A Record with host @ and IP Address 168.62.224.13
  3. If you already have an A record setup for host @ then  just update the IP address.
  4. Now you need to setup a CNAME record to verify your domain
  5. Create a new TXT Record with host @ and point it to portal-peoplevine.azurewebsites.net
  6. Create another CNAME Record with host www and point it to portal.peoplevine.com (if this exists, then make sure it points to portal.peoplevine.com).

Once you have setup your domain, you need to:

  1. In the PeopleVine platform, Click on the Company Menu tab (by clicking your company name) and select Register a Domain Name.
  2. Complete the information related to this domain name and what content you would like to point it to.
  3. Then, fill out this form and we'll complete the process.

Please note that your web site may experience downtime while the switch occurs.  So for A record changes, we recommend you coordinate with us first.

If there is already an A record for @, please delete before creating the new A record.

 

Setup www.yourcompany.com or content.yourcompany.com (aka sub-domain)

  1. Login to your DNS Provider and go to Manage DNS
  2. Create a new CNAME Record with host content and point it to portal.peoplevine.com
  3. Replace content with any sub-domain you want setup (e.g. www)

Once you have setup your domain, you need to:

  1. In the PeopleVine platform, Click on the Company Menu tab (by clicking your company name) and select Register a Domain Name.
  2. Complete the information related to this domain name and what content you would like to point it to.
  3. Then, fill out this form and we'll complete the process.

 

If you would like to avoid any outage to your web site, please complete the "once you have setup your domain..." steps first and we will work with you directly to coordinate a time to activate your web site.
