We understand that not everyone wants or is able to use a classcaster.net domain for their blog. You may already have a domain that you use for a blog you would like to move to Classcaster or your organization may require that all websites and blogs use your organization’s domain name. That’s OK because we have a plugin that you can use to map a custom domain to your Classcaster blog.
Please note that you or someone at your school or organization will need to have access to DNS records to use this plugin.
First you will need to have a Classcaster blog. You can use one that you already have or create a new one and then follow these instructions:
- Login to the dashboard of your Classcaster blog.
- Go to Tools > Domain Mapping in the menu.
- Follow the directions on the page. Mapping domains to Classcaster requires the use of a DNS A record pointing to 188.8.131.52. Please check with your local IT staff if you need help with this.
Now you can access your Classcaster blog from your new custom domain. Remember that it may take up to 72 hours for DNS records to propagate across the Internet. During that time your blog will be available at its Classcaster address.
You can also delete the domain mapping if you want to go back to using the Classcaster domain.
