Setting up your Domain

The Domain settings area will allow you to set up the name of your domain inside your Kourses platform.

To do this, you will have two options.

By default, you will be given a standard domain URL, to which you can assign a name. The structure of the URL is as follows: [subdomain]

You can also choose to use your own Custom Domain, which you can set up by following the instructions in your domain hosting provider.

How to use your own custom domain

To use your own custom domain with your Kourses account, follow these steps.

Important note: Because your site will require an SSL certificate, we recommend using Cloudflare to manage your domain when setting up a subdomain or third party domain for use with Kourses. The instructions below will specifically guide you through using Cloudflare.

Our team will be happy to assist with this process if you get in touch and provide us with your Cloudflare logins once you have your domain setup there.

Step1: Setup your domain and point it to Kourses

Inside of Cloudflare, find the domain that you wish to use, and click on DNS on the sidebar and choose Records

Once you're on that screen, click the blue "Add Record" button

Once you have the add record box open, you need to make a few selections:

  • For the "Type" dropdown, select CNAME
  • In the "Name (required)" field, you need to enter either your subdomain of your main domain you want to use e.g. (enter "members") - or enter "@" if you want to use your root domain
  • In the Target (required) field, enter
  • Leave the setting for proxy status as "Proxied"

Click the blue "Save" button when you've set everything up.  Here's an example where i am setting up my own subdomain of to point to my Kourses site.

Step 2: Setup SSL settings for Cloudflare

Then go to SSL/TLS > Overview page and set SSL/TLS encryption mode to “Full” but not “Full (strict).

Step 3: Set the HTTP rewrites setting

Now go to SSL/TLS > Edge Certificates page and locate “Automatic HTTP Rewrites” and disable it.Step 4: Wait for changes to propagate

It can take up to 30 minutes for the changes to propagate around the web (usually quicker).  Once this has completed, you should be able to access your Kourses site by going to your subdomain
