1. How do I create a custom URL?

Step 1: Go to your 'I organise' interface and to the 'Branding' page. Choose one of your existing brandings or create a new one.

Step 2: Then go to the 'Custom learning space URL' tab.

Step 3: Click on 'Create custom URL'.

Step 4: You can upload a favicon (recommended size: 32 x 32 px). A favicon is an image or icon, usually a logo, that is next to the name in the tab bar of your browser.

Step 5: Select wether you want to create a subdomain or a custom domain.

  • Subdomain: a domain that ends with .myskillcamp.com for which an SSL certificate is assigned automatically through Let's Encrypt. Read how it works here.

  • Custom Domain: a fully customised domain for which an SSL certificate is needed and where the domain needs to be hosted on a DNS. Read how to do it below.

Step 6: Select 'Create'.

Now a status colour will appear. If the status is

  • green: All good! The connection works.

  • red: The connection doesn't work, please contact our Support team.

  • orange: You haven't deployed yet, please try again.

Main 'master' branding

The URL is used to determine which branding is displayed to the user on the login page. If you have several brandings with the same URL, you can decide which branding is shown primarily.

Step 7: Now you can decide if you want to make your current branding the main 'master' branding for this custom URL. Click 'Yes' or 'No'.

Step 8: Select 'Validate'.

2. How can I connect the Domain Name System (DNS)

To set up your custom URL on myskillcamp, customise the domain routings of your Domain Name System (DNS).

You can use the domain name redirection of your DNS service provider to redirect your domain to the myskillcamp platform.

💡 Good to know: Domain redirections are used to change the name of a website. In this case, the redirection will guide web users who are still accessing your old domain name, by automatically redirecting them to the new one.

Please follow the instructions provided by your DNS service provider to connect myskillcamp with your DNS:

3. How can I increase the number of available custom URLs?

If you run out of available URLs here's how you can upgrade.

Step 1: Go to your 'I organise' interface and to the 'Branding' page. Choose one of your existing brandings or create a new one.

Step 2: Then go to the 'Custom learning space URL' tab.

Step 3: On the top right, you can see the number of created URLs. Click on the button 'Increase number of available URLs' next to it.

Step 4: Select 'Validate' and a request will be sent to our Sales team to upgrade your current plan with more custom URLs.
