Using a New Domain
This guide will teach you how to snip using your own domain (snip.ly/abc -> mysite.co/abc)
Step 1: Go to the Brands section in your Sniply Dashboard
Step 2: Click on the Brand you wish to connect your domain to
Step 3: Find the Custom Domain tab and click on the Gear Icon
Step 4: Simply type in your domain name and redirect URL
Step 5: Login to your domain manager (or buy a new domain) and setup your nameservers
a) Buy a domain (if you already have one, you can skip to step 2). GoDaddy, Namecheap, 1&1 and Name.com are all popular options.
b) Redirect your nameservers to the displayed Sniply nameservers
The nameservers will be generated for you and displayed in the Custom Domain popup window.

Done! You can now create snips using your own domain (snip.ly/abc -> mysite.co/abc)
Using Your Website's Domain
If you don't want to buy a new domain, you can also use your existing domain, but you will need to create a subdomain. For example, if your website is mysite.com, you can use Sniply with a domain like sharedby.mysite.com (Sniply links will look like sharedby.mysite.com/abcd). To set this up:
Step 1: Complete steps 1-4 above
Step 2: Set up a subdomain by adding an "A" record for the subdomain that you would like to use (like "go" or "sharedby") that points to 126.96.36.199.

Done! You can now create snips using your own domain (snip.ly/abc -> sharedby.mysite.co/abc)
