Benefits of using your own Domain for your WEBKiosk
- High trust by visitors because they already know the domain. Users who come from your main website won’t have to leave the domain they are already on.
- Links always refer to your own domain, which increases your domains strength and popularity, for search engine optimiziation purposes.
- Search engines index your magazines directly on your domain, which is more likely to be clicked.
Why does my Kiosk need a DNS configuration?
The Domain Name Server (DNS) of your Domain, is managed by your hoster. Yumpu needs to know which Domain/Subdomain points to the Kiosk and your hoster needs to know, which domain (www.mydomain.com) or subdomain (subdomain.mydomain.com) should be referred to Yumpu.
Enter Domain/Subdomain at nameserver/host
First you have to change the CNAME entry at your domain/subdomain. If you don’t have a subdomain yet, you need to create one at your hoster. Then enter “webkiosks.yumpu.com” as the CNAME entry of your domain/subdomain. If possible enter the value 300 for the TTL. The subdomain is no configured properly. Depending on your hoster you may have to wait up to 24 hours until the changes take effect.
Test the configuration
Here’s how you can test your nameserver entry:
- Open the website http://ping.eu/nslookup/
- Enter your Domain, Ex.: enter “webkiosk.meinedomain.de” in the field “IP address or host name:”
- Example result if the nameserver entry is correct:
----- Ping.euS erver:
webkiosk.meinedomain.de is an alias for webkiosks.yumpu.com.
webkiosks.yumpu.com has address 126.96.36.199
webkiosks.yumpu.com has address 188.8.131.52
webkiosks.yumpu.com has IPv6 address 2a05:d018:4b1:a001:d90c:dac3:5e8c:4404
webkiosks.yumpu.com has IPv6 address 2a05:d018:4b1:a002:7359:7123:c722:8efa
Now you can assign your domain/subdomain to your WEBKiosk
