You came up with a good address for your Cvent site, discussed pricing with your Account Manager, filled out the form for a private domain or custom URL, and waited the 10-14 business days for it to appear in your account. Now what? The wait is finally over. It's time to associate your URL to a specific event, contact website, or page within your account. But remember, a single address can only lead to one place so if you have multiple events or sites, you'll need to alter the URL by appending the event or site name to the end.
 
NOTE: Custom URLs in Flex events include .cventevents.com.

1 Add an event name to your URL. Begin by selecting your event. From the left-hand navigation, click Marketing, then Weblinks.


Click Change Domain.

Choose your custom address from the Website Domain dropdown. Enter the name you want to add to your URL
in the Trailing Event Name field. You can use up to 50 letters and numbers, but no spaces or special characters. Trailing names for private domains and custom URLs are case sensitive, so lowercase text is recommended. Use the Landing Page radio buttons to specify the webpage this URL will take people to.
 

Change Domain

Once you're done, click Confirm. A Custom Link section appears with the event's customized URL, which you can now distribute to your invitees.

2 Specify your URL's landing page. Now that your events and contact websites have a custom version of your URL, what happens to plain old www.YourCompany.com? Until you specify a landing page for this root domain, like an event, calendar, or contact website, it will route you to a generic Cvent search page. You can change this at any time and it won't affect your event-specific URLs.

Click the App Switcher Icon icon in the top-right, then select Admin from the dropdown. From the left-hand navigation, click Data Lists, then Custom Domains. Select your custom address from the list, then click Edit.

In the Domain Target field, select Custom, then, from the Custom Target field, click the ellipsis (...). When the pop-up appears, enter criteria and click Search. Select an event, contact website, or event calendar from the list.

Domain Basic Information

Click Save.
