Many business' value their brand identity and want their customers and agents to access their support portal using their own custom URL that matches their marketing website's domain.

For example, instead of pointing your customers and agents to: mycompany.cayzu.com, you can point them to your own custom domain: support.mycompany.com 

To accomplish this there are 2 per-requisites:

1. You must be either on a free trial or on our PRO/Freedom plans (SOLO doesn't support custom domains)

2. You've setup a CNAME record in your DNS server to point your custom domain to your Cayzu's company domain (Ex. cayzudemo.cayzu.com ).  


To point your support portal to a custom domain, follow these steps:


Step 1. Create a CNAME record in your DNS server

a. Log in to your Domain Control Panel for your DNS server
b. Navigate to the DNS or Name Servers section
c. Create a new DNS record and point your custom support URL to your custom domain provided by Cayzu. (Ex. cayzudemo.cayzu.com) and save it.
