If you're planning to run your job board alongside an outside home page, using a custom sub-domain may be your best option. Setting up a custom sub-domain is quick and easy, and keep your brand consistent. If you aren't familiar with DNS configuration, the easiest way to get the required settings in place is to contact your domain provider. They are experts on their system, and will be the best resource to get this setup quickly. Unfortunately, we won't be able to log in to your 3rd-party domain account and manage your DNS settings.
Use the below e-mail template to send a help request to your domain provider's support team. Be sure to use your own domain name in the e-mail.
Hello, Please could you update my DNS settings for mydomain.com? I require a CNAME record for "jobs.mydomain.com" pointing to "proxy.jobboard.io" Thanks, YourName
For your CNAME, "proxy.jobboard.io" is the required value. In this case, proxy isn't an example value, so this will NOT need to be adjusted to match your site's name.
