Using your Company URL to Access your EZRentOut Account and Webstore

Company URLs

This blog tells you how to access your EZRentOut account and Webstore using your company URL.

To do this, you’ll need to configure your company URL to forward traffic to a different address. This is done by setting up a CNAME.

To add a CNAME to your domain, you’ll need to log into your Domain Registrar’s DNS manager. In case you forgot who you bought your domain from, search for your domain at https://www.internic.net/whois.html.

Below, we outline the steps for adding a CNAME in GoDaddy for the following scenarios.

Please note that the steps may be different if you have a different registrar.

I. Accessing your EZR Account using your company URL

This process can be used to point, say, items.HappyRentals.com (my corporate website’s subdomain) to HappyRentals.ezrentout.com (my EZRentOut account). The CNAME in this example is ‘items’.

1. Log in to your GoDaddy DNS account.
2. Click on the user icon in the top right, then go to My Products > your chosen domain > DNS.

3. On the Records page, click the ‘Add’ button on the bottom right:

4. Choose ‘CNAME’ from the dropdown:

5. In the ‘Host’ field, enter the CNAME you want to use with your current URL (for example ‘items’ for items.mycompany.com)
6. In the ‘Points To’ field, add your Admin login URL for EZRentOut (for example, mycompanyname.ezrentout.com).

7. Click ‘Save’.
8. Once a CNAME has been set up,  go to your EZRentOut account to save the CNAME record from Settings Add Ons Company URL. Click ‘Validate Company URL’ to confirm if it has been set up correctly.company url

Note: It can take up to 72 hours for the changes to be made.

II. Accessing your Webstore using your company URL

This process can be used to point, say, rentals.HappyRentals.com (my corporate website’s subdomain) to HappyRentals.ezrentalstore.com (my EZRentOut Webstore). The CNAME in this example is ‘rentals’.
