Your Podia account comes with a free subdomain that you can customize (e.g.

However, if you want to use your own website instead of a subdomain -- like Sander does at, or like Marcus does at, we make that easy, too! 😃

Step 1: Buy a web domain

If you already have your own domain name, go ahead to Step 2.

If you don't already have a domain name, you'll need to buy one. We recommend Hover ($12.99/year for a .com) as it's both affordable and easy to manage.

Step 2: Add your custom domain to Podia

To set up your custom domain, just go Settings in your Podia account and enter the custom domain that you'd like your Podia Storefront to live on.

Step 3: Add a CNAME record

Login to your domain registrar and add a CNAME for your domain pointing to "" 

(Note: "" is NOT an example, but the correct URL to point to).

Some registrars require a period at the end of the link being pointed to - so in that case enter: 

Your CNAME can either be a subdomain i.e. "" ("store" can be replaced with any word you'd like) or a full domain such as "".

After you've created your CNAME, send us an email and include your CNAME.

Your custom domain name will be ready in 24-48 hours.

Here's a list of common domain registrars and instructions for setting up a CNAME:

P.S. even if you're using a custom domain, your Podia storefront will be safe and secure, as we provide a free SSL certificate to all Podia customers 🔐
