    Test your CNAME

  3. Open your 3D Issue software and add the new domain to your Domains list (Content > Profile > Setup > Domains > Add) – in this example, you can also add your Google Analytics ID to this domain entry.
  4. Send a quick email with your newly created Domain name to our support team at so that we can finalize the process on our end.

When creating the DNS entry, Please be sure to use a CNAME, rather than an A Record. This will ensure that your Flipbooks will continue to work, even if our server location changes.

Using this method, your cloud hosted Flipbooks would then also be visible at the cname that you setup. For example:
