MakeForms’ Domain Mapping feature allows users to connect and host forms on their own domain name instead of MakeForms’ domain. This means that instead of having a form URL that looks like makeforms.io/formname, the URL will be forms.yourdomain.com/form-name.
You can host your forms on your own domain name instead of on MakeForms’ domain. This offers better control over your forms and allows you to seamlessly integrate them into your website and brand.
Increase trust and credibility by hosting your forms on your own domain and make your forms seem more legitimate and professional to attract more form respondents.
It can make your forms look more professional and help establish your brand online by including custom form URLs of your own domain name.
You can promote and share custom form URLs easily in all of your marketing and promotional materials. Drive traffic to your forms and increase conversions with Domain Mapping.
MakeForms Agency Plan allows you to connect 3 Domain Names while MakeForms Pro Plan allows you to connect 1 Domain Name
Don’t have your own domain name? You can still use MakeForms to create and host your forms on our domain name. We ensure that your users will never know that you are using MakeForms by hosting all the forms on a white label domain name, which is frms.link
No, Domain Mapping has no impact on your form data or submissions. All form data is still securely stored in your MakeForms account, regardless of whether you are using the default MakeForms domain or a custom domain name.
While it’s helpful to have some basic understanding of domain names and DNS settings, you don’t need to be a technical expert to set up Domain Mapping in MakeForms. Our support team is always available to help guide you through the process if you run into any issues.
At the moment, MakeForms allows subdomain mapping only. Reverse Proxy is available upon request.
Before connecting a domain name, you need to ensure that you have a Pro plan or higher.
Navigate to the Domains section of your MakeForms account, and enter the domain name you want to map in the format of subdomain.domainname. Then, click the “Add Domain” button.
After adding the domain name, MakeForms will provide you with two CNAME records – one for SSL creation and one for connecting the subdomain to servers.
Next, you will need to create the CNAME record entries in the DNS settings of your domain registrar or hosting provider. This process can take anywhere from 4 to 72 hours to complete.
Once the DNS propagation is complete, the domain name will show a green verified button in your MakeForms account. You can then publish your forms to your own domain name.
Here are common situations where a custom domain is preferred over a generic form link:
