Flipsnack makes it possible for you to make your catalogs look like they have been created entirely by your company. You can literally remove all Flipsnack branding from the page, add your own logo, your own favicon, and customize the footer. Additionally, you can also change the URL.
Examples of custom domain and subdomain
You can use a subdomain from your site for all your catalogs, or set up a domain. Most of our users already have a site and they want to connect their publications with their own site.
Here are some live examples:
Custom domain: https://habits-magazine.com
Custom subdomain: http://magazines.stem.org.uk
How to set up a custom domain/ subdomain
First, you would need an Enterprise Flipsnack subscription, previously known as Elite.
- After you have purchased it, on the bottom left of My flipbooks click on Brand identity.
- In the Custom profile URL field add your domain/subdomain (eg magazine.yourdomain.com) name and click Save changes.
- Once you do that click on Configuration, and a popin will open. You will need the CNAME records for the Page domain and SSL certificate, that are displayed in the popin.
- The next step is naturally navigating to your domain registrar (The website that sold and allowed you to register your current website address). Open it in a new tab, log in, and check the DNS settings.
- Create a new record for Page domain. Set the Type to CNAME, add your preferred Host (in our case, magazine - this is the name of the subdomain) and Point it to the value listed in the Flipsnack configuration popin. Once you have the correct settings, click Save.
- Create a new record for SSL certificate. Set the Type to CNAME, and copy the info from Host and Point it to the value listed in the Flipsnack configuration popin. Once you have the correct settings, click Save.
Important: You need to create 2 records, one for the Page domain and one for the SSL certificate.

You might have to wait for a couple hours before your subdomain works as it should, so don’t panic if it doesn’t work instantly. Contact us if you need help setting your domain.
