You need to have ownership and control of your domain. If you don’t already own a domain, you’ll need to register one. For ideas & suggestions for a short domain based on your brand, try the domain name suggestion service, domai.nr. You can also consult the list of top-level domains (TLDs) on Wikipedia for ideas.
We recommend using a domain that is 5-10 characters in length – this allows for optimal branding while conserving space for the text of your posts.
2. Update your custom domain’s DNS settings
You will need to make one of the following DNS changes:
a. Set a DNS A Record making your custom short domain point to 22.214.171.124
yourdomain.com. IN A 126.96.36.199
b. If you are using a subdomain (subdomain.your-custom-domain.com) for your custom short domain, add a CNAME record in your DNS that points your subdomain to dlvr.it
short.yourdomain.com. IN CNAME dlvr.it.
It can take up to 24 hours or more for changes to your DNS settings to take effect, though many updates are completed much faster. Until the changes take effect, you will not be able to set up and use your custom short domain in dlvr.it. This protects against publishing broken links.
Log into your dlvr.it account and go to Settings → Short Links. Click on the + (plus sign) to add your custom domain.
Enter your custom short domain. And select a) if you would like it to be used for all of your existing routes, and/or b) used as the default for all accounts you create in the future.
If your DNS settings have not yet taken effect, you will not be able to complete the set up in dlvr.it. This protects against publishing broken links. It can take up to 24 hours or more for changes to your DNS settings to take effect, though many updates are completed much faster.
