Connect my domain to SmugMug


You can establish a more professional identity for your SmugMug site by connecting it to a domain name you register through us. Instead of entering your SmugMug URL to view your site, visitors can enter your unique domain name to view your customized photos and galleries.

Looks like you're not logged in. If you log in above (under Text Icon), we can save you a couple of steps.

  1. Go to the DNS Management page.
  2. On the DNS Management page, in the Records section, locate your CNAME records under the Type column.
  3. Next to the CNAME record with the Name "www," click the Click pencil icon on existing MX records (pencil icon).
  4. In the Points to field, type domains.smugmug.com.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Scroll down to the Forwarding section, and next to Domain, click Add.
    • Enter your domain in the following format: www.yourdomainname.com. (For example, if you own coolexample.com, you would enter: www.coolexample.com.)
    • Under Forward Type, select either Permanent (301) or Temporary (302).
    • Under Settings, select Forward Only.
    • Check the box for Update my nameservers and DNS settings to support this change.
    • Click Save.
  7. Once setup is complete, visit your SmugMug account settings and input the custom domain.
