Travefy allows you to use a domain that you own in two places.

One is your website's address such as

Another is the URL your clients see when sharing an itinerary, proposal, or form link with them. Example: https://CulinaryToursOfNebraska.com/trip/6yw9rqyxvmgsqz2axadd2j4q8b9tcka

To set this up, you will need to follow the steps below!

Note: If the website/landing page you're building with Travefy's website builder will be your primary website, follow this first set of instructions. If you have another website that shares the domain you want to use with your Travefy site, skip to Option B below.

Option A

1. Purchase a domain from a provider like GoDaddy or Google Domains.

2. Go to your Domain Masking settings in your Travefy account

There are two ways to get there!

#1. In Travefy, go to https://travefy.com/a/trips and click your Name, then Account.

On the next page, click Settings and then Setup Domain.

#2. In Travefy, go to https://travefy.com/a/trips and click your Name, then Website.

On the Website page, click the little cog in the top left corner.

From there, under the General tab, click on Setup Domain.

3. Enable Custom Domain and input domain information

Click on Enable Custom Domain

From there, select the second option in Step 1 and input your domain and click on Save Domain

4. Add an A Record in your domain provider's DNS area

Note: Your domain provider's dashboard could look slightly different from what's pictured.

Log in to the account you have with your domain provider and find the area that allows you to edit your DNS settings.

Click the edit button that's in the same row as your A record. If there is no A record, you'll want to add one using the Add button. You will want to have only one A record. Having multiple A records will cause problems.

Note: If you are unable to edit or delete unwanted A records, customer support for these domain providers is usually able to do that from their side.

After clicking "edit", add Travefy's IP address (23.22.89.49) into the Data field and either add an @ symbol in the name field or leave it blank (this will depend on the domain provider). In GoDaddy, you'll use the "@" symbol. In Google Domains, you usually leave the name field blank.

5. Add a CNAME Record

Sometimes this will already be done for you. But you will want to have a CNAME record that has "www" in the Name field and your domain in the data field.

Example:

6. Test Settings

After a few minutes, go back into Travefy and click Test Settings. You should get a success message if the instructions were followed correctly!

7. Wait 24 hours

This will give your domain provider and Travefy time to sync up. During that time, you'll notice issues like landing on the Trips page when typing in your domain or you might notice your site's SSL certificate isn't set. This is normal. Don't touch anything in either account. If things still aren't working after that 24-hour period, message professional@travefy.com or set up a domain masking session to get help from our support team!

Option B: Only Do This If You Have Another Site You Want To Use With The Same Domain

1. Enable Custom Domain and input domain information

Instead of choosing the second option from step 3 above, you'll choose the first option.

After saving your domain, you'll see this screen.

2. Add a CNAME Record

In your domain provider's DNS dashboard, add a CNAME record. You'll use "trips" for the Name field and the value you find in your Travefy account for the Value field.

3. Test Settings

After a few minutes, go back into Travefy and click Test Settings. You should get a success message if everything went according to plan.

7. Wait 24 hours

This will give your domain provider and Travefy time to sync up. During that time, you'll notice issues like landing on the Trips page when typing in your domain or you might notice your site's SSL certificate isn't set. This is normal. Don't touch anything in either account.
