When you sign-up for AlterClass, we provide you with a free yourdomain.alterclass.school subdomain to host all your courses under the same roof. However, you can set up your own domain or subdomain for your AlterClass school to reflect your brand more closely and get rid of the AlterClass branding watermark.
In this guide, you will learn how to accomplish this.
If you are not a PRO member yet, you can upgrade your account from here. Once you are a PRO member, adding a custom domain to your AlterClass school is very straightforward.
Once you are logged in, click on your profile picture at the top-right corner of your dashboard and click on the Settings link.
From here, navigate to the Domain tab.
From the domain page, enter the domain you wish to add to your school, without the www or https:// prefix, in the text field provided.
Then click on the Add button to proceed.
Once the domain has been added, you will be presented with different methods for configuring it, depending on whether it is an apex domain (myschool.com) or subdomain (courses.myschool.com).
You can configure apex domains by adding an A record at the root whose value is 188.8.131.52.
You can configure subdomains by adding a CNAME record where the hostname is @, and the corresponding value is alterclass.network. This CNAME record will point your subdomain to AlterClass' IP address.
Once the domain has been configured successfully, the card status will change to reflect this.
If you're stuck or need help configuring your custom domain with your AlterClass school, feel free to reach us out by using the live chat on this website or by email at email@example.com.
