How do I setup my Custom Domain?

1. Register a domain if you haven’t already. Some popular registrars are namecheap, name.com, namesilo and godaddy. We will go through the steps for setting up the domain “example.com”, which will be replaced by the domain name of your choosing.

2. Once your domain is registered, decide where you want your gumroad store to live. If you don’t have any existing content on your website, you can put it on www.example.com. Otherwise, you can choose another subdomain, such as store.example.com.

3. Visit the gumroad advanced settings page. Once you get there, enter your domain name under “Custom domain” and click “Update account details"

www.example.com
store.example.com

4. You’re all set with Gumroad! Now, you need to setup your DNS records with your registrar.

5. You will need to set different records depending on which subdomain you choose.

For www.example.com, your DNS records should be as follows:

Host nameRecord typeValue
@URL Redirecthttp://www.example.com
wwwCNAMEdomains.gumroad.com


For store.example.com, your DNS records should be as follows:

Host nameRecord typeValue
storeCNAMEdomains.gumroad.com

You’re all set! Your DNS changes may take up to 24 hours.
