Adding subdomains to your domain manager account or changing the subdomain name is a challenging process, especially if you don’t know the right steps. However, with our assistance, you will be able to add or change subdomains quickly and easy. Let’s start.

The first thing you need to do is to connect the subdomains and make them primary for the content tools. The next thing you need to do is to ensure you have access to your DNS provider. If you don’t have access to your DNS provider you may need to ask for additional help from your IT department.

Once you have access to your DNS provider or you have your IT team by your side, you are ready to help. The first step is adding the subdomain to your domain manager account. Here are the steps you need to remember:

  • Navigate to Content > Content Settings > Domain Manager
  • Click the Connect Another COS Domain option
  • Now you have to enter your new subdomain and whether or not you want this subdomain to be your primary subdomain for your landing page and for all content tools. You can also choose the option to redirect it to a currently connected domain name. Consult with your IT team or with your web hosting service provider about how many subdomains you can add to one account.
  • Click the Connect Subdomain option
