Set a custom URL (domain) on your flipbooks

 

Share a flipbook with your company's URL instead of Paperturn's URL. 

 

With our PRO subscription, you're able to set a custom URL (domain) per flipbook - meaning, you can have several unique URLs per account. 

 

*This feature requires a lot of technical knowledge in addition to access to your domain's DNS settings. Please have a technical member of your team assist you when setting this feature up.

 

 

EXAMPLE 

Your website is called: www.beautytools.com

 

You want to create custom URL for your flipbook that shows the keyword “catalog”, so that your flipbook's URL would be catalog.beautytools.com.

 

STEP 1: Create a CNAME in your DNS service provider

 

  • You need to create a CNAME record within your own domain DNS service to route queries for publications.
  • The CNAME needs to point to www.paperturn.com. 

Paperturn

 

  • If you have the possibility to insert TTL, just ignore it or insert default value.
 

*Notice: It can take from 1 minute to 6 hours before the changes from your DNS host are active.

 

STEP 2: Insert your CNAME in Paperturn

 

  • (2.1) Wait 1 day before inserting your new CNAME in Paperturn's system. We want to ensure the CNAME is activated in your DNS. 
  • (2.2) After 1 day, log into your Paperturn account and select the flipbook you wish to apply the custom domain name to.  Visit the "Edit" tab and click on "Advanced settings".

Choose a flipbook, click the Edit tab and then Advanced Settings

 

  •  (2.3) Insert your CNAME in the CNAME field. 

In the field in the bottom right hand corner, add the cname

 

  • (2.4) Save the changes.

Click the blue Save button underneath the cname field

 

 

  • (2.5) If your CNAME is valid and accepted, you'll receive a confirmation message under the CNAME field.
