How to assign a Custom Domain Name *BEST Method
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.
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.
Every host has a different method for modifying your domain name, so we have opted to use GoDaddy.com as a reference as it is the most popular registrar out there. If you are not using GoDaddy.com, please contact your registrar for information on how to make the changes below.
