When hosting your Flipbooks on our cloud servers you can mask the cloud domain, so that your magazine appears to be on your own domain to Google.
By default, the URL would be in the form:
In order to do this, please have your webmaster or hosting provider follow the steps below:
- Access your DNS manager and create a new CNAME such as flipbooks.yourdomain.com that is pointed at cloud.3dissue.net
- Test your CNAME with our Testing page. If everything has been setup correctly you’ll get a success message.
- Open your Flipbooks Online Dashboard and add the CNAME (Manage > Branding > Advanced > Domain (CNAME)) – in this example https://flipbooks.yourdomain.com, you can also add your Google Analytics Tracking ID in the field below.
- Click Save. The masking process will begin automatically on our server and will send you an email once complete.
The process may take a few minutes as we request SSL certificates for your domain and these take some time to generate.
Using this method, your cloud-hosted Flipbooks would then also be visible at the CNAME that was setup. For example:
Original URL: https://cloud.3dissue.net/123/123/345/345/index.html
After masking process is complete:
Masked URL: https://flipbooks.yourdomain.com/345/345/index.html
Now you can easily distribute this masked web link URL for your Flipbooks through social media, email campaigns, on your own website as plain text, hyperlinked images or text, or even by embedding your Flipbooks on your website via an iFrame.
