How to Assign your own Custom Domain Name
Digital PTO offers the ability to use your own domain name when you are a member of a Basic or higher Plan. This allows your website to be accessed not only from your original address (schoolname.digitalpto.com) but also from a custom domain like yourschoolspta.com.
This method changes your DNS NAME SERVERS. If you do not have a reason to use this method, we would suggest using our BEST METHOD LOCATED HERE.
Please Note: Domain names are registered with a third party provider of your choice and are not a part of Digital PTO. Once you have registered a domain name, we will teach you how to “point” it to us.
