Customizing your 360Learning URL

Your platform URL corresponds to the address that appears at the top of your browser when your learners are on the login page:

By default, your URL is http://app.360learning.com, but you can customize it.

There are two ways to customize your URL:

1 – Customize the "app", but keep ".360learning"

2 – Create a white label platform

 

1 – Customize the "app", but keep ".360learning"

Ex: "myplatform.360learning.com"

Navigate to Settings and Members > My Platform > General, and enter the desired subdomain in the Your 360Learning address field.

Your platform URL is visible in the Insert this link in your Web site section

2 – Create a white label platform

Ex: "myplatform.com"

PLEASE NOTE To fully customize your platform URL, you must first purchase the domain name (the name of your website).

Once you’ve purchased your domain name, you’ll need to configure it. To do so, go to the back office of your host or registrar (the site where you purchased the domain name). Look for the DNS section. You’ll need to create a new entry in this section:

  • Type: CNAME
  • From the domain or subdomain of your choice
  • Targeting app.360Learning.com

Here’s a guide for doing this on OVH, 1and1 and Gandi

A - OVH:

Once you’ve done this, your redirection will be in place. It may take up to 24 hours for the DNS to take these changes into account, please be patient!

 

B - 1and1:

Start by selecting your subdomain (the one where you want your elearning workspace to appear), then select Edit DNS as shown here:

Then, as shown on the following screen:

  • select CNAME
  • type app.360learning.com
  • check the box
  • click on Validate

Once you’ve done this, your redirection will be in place. It may take up to 24 hours for the DNS to take these changes into account, please be patient!

C - Gandi:

Log in to your Gandi account.

Navigate to your list of domain names and click on the one that will be used for the URL.

Once you’ve selected the domain name, you can create or edit a zone.

If the zone exists already, you’ll need to create a new version.

On this page, click on “Add”. This will allow you to create your sub direction.

Fill in the information as shown in the example below. Only the name can be customized. All other elements must be identical.

Click on validate.

Once you’ve created your redirection, remember to publish the correct zone version.
It may take up to 24 hours for the DNS to take these changes into account, please be patient!

D – Configure the domain name on 360Learning

Once the redirection has been setup with your host, you can customize your platform URL. To do so, from the homepage of your 360Learning workspace:

  • hover over your profile photo, click on Settings and Members
  • in the My Account section, click on General
  • insert your URL in the Customize your URL section

Please Note: Do not create a “transparent redirection”. If you do not follow the instructions in this tutorial, your customized address will not be valid and your learners will not be able to join your platform.
