Here we'll show you how to configure a Podigee subdomain or your own domain name for your blog.
Use a subdomain of podigee.io
To get started quickly or if you don’t want to register your own domain name you can use a subdomain provided by Podigee that looks something like this:
The part between http:// and .podigee.io can be configured by you in the podcast settings.
To do this go to https://www.podigee.com/podcasts and click on the name of the podcast you want to edit.
Then go to the Blog tab and select all the text in the Name (subdomain) field and enter your desired subdomain name. Just click outside of the field to save the setting.
This can be any combination of letters, numbers and dashes. Any other kind of special characters won’t be allowed. So
my-awesome-podcast is OK while
my.awesome.podcast is not because it contains dots. When you’re finished, click Save and enjoy your new (sub)domain.
Use your own domain
If you’d like to use your own domain name you can also do that.
There are two possible domain configurations available to your podcast including:
- A subdomain like
- A root domain like
To add them you need to follow a simple two step process:
- Tell Podigee what domain you’d like to use
- Configure your domain’s DNS to point to Podigee
You’ll find specific instructions for each domain configuration below.
Adding a subdomain of your domain
If you entered a subdomain (like
www.example.com) you need to go to the provider where you registered your domain (or your DNS provider) and create a CNAME record for that domain pointing to your subdomain. For example, if your domain name is
www.example.com and your Podigee subdomain is
example.podigee.io this is how the record should look:
Once you’ve done this, move to the section labeled Configure the domain in Podigee, below.
Adding a root domain
Adding a root domain like
example.com is unfortunately not possible with every domain/DNS provider. Here are two providers that support it:
If your provider doesn’t support this, you’ll need to use a subdomain instead (like
www.example.com). Our recommendation in this case is to redirect your root domain to the subdomain you decide to use.
Once you’ve done this, move to the section labeled Configure the domain in Podigee below.
Configure the domain in Podigee
Before you can add the domain to your podcast configuration on Podigee, please wait until it’s been promoted to the majority of DNS servers. You can check this by typing the domain into your browser. If you see a message like the one below, you’re good to go. If not, you need to wait a bit longer.
There is no app configured at that hostname. Perhaps the app owner has renamed it, or you mistyped the URL.
To add the domain to your podcast, go to https://www.podigee.com/podcasts and click on the name of the podcast you want to use the domain for.
Then go to the Blog tab and enter your domain name into the Domain field. Just click outside of the field to save the setting.
Now you should see your podcast page when you visit the domain in your browser.
Please note that if you set a domain for your podcast all requests to its subdomain will be redirected to the domain entered into the configuration. This is necessary so that search engines will only find one unique copy of your content on the internet. You can find more on the topic of duplicate content in Googles Webmaster Tools Documentation.
If you need any help setting up your domain/s, please write an email to email@example.com with the name of your domain provider, and we’ll try to help you as soon as we can.
