How To Change Your Subdomain Name
Your ChurchSpring site is automatically set up in a subdomain, so you can update your website subdomain name before updating your custom domain.
Your subdomain website name has a default name of a series of letters and numbers that is created when you become a ChurchSpring member. But what if you want to change that name? Easy! Just follow these quick steps:
- Login to your ChurchSpring website
- Click on Settings
- The page will load to a “Website Domain Information” page. Type in your desired subdomain name in the “Sub Domain” text box. For example, you may prefer to use your Church Name such as woodmenvalley.churchspring.org
Click the “Check Availability” button to confirm that the subdomain is available. If it is not available, the sub domain text box will become outlined in red and you must choose a different subdomain.
Click Save and you’re all set!
