How to Set Up your Custom Domain in Google Domains

If you are using Google Domains as your domain hosting provider, then you need to follow the next steps to connect your purchased domain with your LearnWorlds school.

Create a CNAME Record in Google Domains

1. Log in to your Google Domain account and click "My Domains".

2. Select the domain that you would like to use for your school and click "Manage".

3. Click on the left sidebar "DNS".

4. Scroll into the section "Custom Resource Records".

5. In Name, enter the subdomain you wish, e.g. www. A subdomain precedes your main domain name. For example in www.yourschool.com, www is the subdomain. You can choose any other name for your subdomain, just make sure that it does not have the same name as an existing record.

6. In Type, select CNAME.

7. In TTL, you can leave the field to 1H.

8. In Data, enter your LearnWorlds school URL (e.g. yourschool.learnworlds.com or yourschool.mylearnworlds.com, or yourschool.getlearnwordls.com).

9. Click Add.


Notes: 

  • Make sure to replace yourschool.learnworlds.com from the examples with your LearnWolrds school URL. 
  • Do not include the https:// before your LearnWorlds URL or the / after.


Create an A Record in Google Domains

If you don't want to use a subdomain, but only the naked domain (e.g. without www):


1. In the Name field type the symbol @

2. In Type, select Type A 

3. In TTL, you can leave the field to 1H.

4. In Data, add your school's IP address. You can locate this by entering your LearnWorlds school URL to Google Admin Toolbox here (without https:// or / at the end).

Check if the CNAME record is successfully added

1. Go to Google Admin Toolbox.

2. Insert your domain (without https:// or / at the end). For example, www.yourschool.com or yourschool.com.

3. If the CNAME record is correct, the Learnworlds URL will appear in Target.

Request the domain's change in your school settings

1. Navigate to Site builder → Site Settings → Domain.

2. Type the subdomain you created.

3. Click on Verify Domain → Click on Change Domain.

4. The verification message will appear. Your domain will be ready within the next 48 hours.
