How to setup a custom domain

You don't need a custom domain to use Yet Another Sermon host - you can just point people to the default url that looks something like: yetanothersermon.host/_/stcs/

However, if you would rather use an url that looks like sermons.yourchurchsite.org insted the rest of this article will show you how to get setup.

Prerequisites

Before you get started you need access to your domain's DNS settings.

Setting up on your DNS host

tl;dr You need to set up a CNAME and point it to cname.yetanothersermon.host.

Depending on your DNS host, this may look a little different than described.

If you get stuck, please get in touch, or ask your DNS provider for help.
