Custom Domain?

Have you guys considered custom domains?
I have , would be cool to have it go directly to the community

Yes, we want to support those really badly—just don't really know how to even start tackling that 😅 Any clues how to do that?
I have no experience with it, other than some sites that allow it. I think you need to setup CNAME or A records. There is plenty of info out there for setting it up on the domain side. But I couldn't find any info on the server side. Here is how github does it

Yeah we're not totally sure how to go about implementing this, especially thinking of the edge cases (e.g. should people be able to navigate to other communities from your custom subdomain?)
As far as navigation/branding/sign in, IMHO Medium does it well for its "publications" (e.g. or :)

The first step you should take is to move the community to Subdomain. Such as instead of<community> It should be https://<community> After that you can allow a custom CNAME to be mapped to the specified community.

For now we are redirecting our community from to using HTTP 301 Redirect.

We want to use spectrum to run our communities at HelloMeets
Can we do it?
The main question is can we have a custom url?
Is that possible with spectrum

Any action on this? Do you need some help?

This isn't currently on our roadmap sorry about that!
