DNS Settings for Launch

How do I launch my site?

To launch your site, you first need to set up your own custom domain in RebelMouse. To do this, you need to point your domain to our servers.


This can all be done in your Account Dashboard under Domain Settings:

To customize your site's URL, you need to set up your DNS settings. These settings are something you change through your domain registrar, which is the server provider that hosts your old site.

Updating the CNAME Records

To do this, you need to update the www CNAME records like so:

<a href="http://www.lovemeow.com" target="_blank">www.lovemeow.com</a> CNAME runners-cdn.rebelmouse.com

Please make sure you don't create a new CNAME record. You want to edit the existing one.


Updating the A Records

You'll also need to update your @/A records like this:

lovemeow.com A 54.243.223.182 AND 54.243.223.181

Once you change your domain to point to RebelMouse, your customized URL should be live within one hour.


If your final URL is a subdomain

For a subdomain such as name.company.com, the instructions are to update the subdomain records as follows:

name.company.com CNAME runners-cdn.rebelmouse.com 


For all sites, domains and subdomains

Please also check your Domain Settings to find a string that needs to be included in the @ TXT record of your DNS.

Here's an example of how this should look:

rebelmouse=0296577248d0df8680XXXXb4f5b2663e106f6c40


Here's quick access to instructions for the most popular domain registrars:

Why Does RebelMouse Create Growth?

After a shaky 2018, publishers are positioned to start the new year with less dependency on the platforms. But the chase to consistently create ROI from content is still somewhat unclear. According to Content Marketing Institute, one-third of B2C marketers and 42% of B2B marketers do not measure content growth, with many of them citing it's just not tangible enough to understand.

New: Easily Remove Users + Transfer Content

We subscribe to the idea that we live in a universe filled with creators. With that said, not all creators are created equal, and sometimes they move on after a while. That's why we want to make sure our site administrators have complete control over who has access to their RebelMouse pages. We've launched a new user interface within our users dashboard that allows you to efficiently remove authors from your site. And during this process, you can also reallocate posts from one user to another in bulk. Here's a look at how it all works.
