Systeme.io lets you connect and use any custom domains that you have purchased outside of the platform.
Using a custom domain instead of the one that Systeme.io generates is beneficial because it helps you build and create more brand recognition.

How to Add a Custom Domain to Systeme.io (Step by Step)
To set up a custom domain within Systeme.io, you must first have a Systeme.io account and also have a registered domain purchased from elsewhere (GoDaddy or NameCheap for example).
Step 1: Log into your Systeme.io account and click on your profile icon in the top-right corner. Select Settings, and from the left-side menu, select Custom Domains.
Step 2: Click on the blue Add Domain button in the top-right corner. A pop-up will appear inviting you to add your custom domain name. Ensure you preface the domain with “WWW.” For example, www.domain.com. Click Save to continue.
Step 3: Another pop-up will appear, providing the DNS CNAME records. Open another browser window and log in to the platform where you purchased the custom domain. For example, if your domain was bought on GoDaddy, you must log into your GoDaddy account.
Now you must create the CNAME records according to the domain provider’s instructions. This process differs from one provider to the next, but you don’t need to worry. This is a usual procedure, so all platforms have very clear instructions on how to do it.
If at any point you get stuck on this step, contact your domain provider’s customer service, and they will walk you through it.
Step 4: Once you have added the CNAME records, you must wait. Note that it can take up to 48 hours for the DNS records to fully populate. When the connection is complete, you will see in your Systeme.io account that the domain name is ready to use.
Where in Systeme.io Can the Custom Domain Be Used?
It is up to you where you use your custom domain. The platform lets you use it for the following Systeme.io pages and products:
- Sales funnels
- Blog sites
If you don’t yet have a custom domain, that’s okay. Systeme.io generates a domain for you when you create an account on the platform. You can use this one to start with; then, when you purchase a custom domain, you can add and use that one instead.
