    My hosting service say that a CNAME must end with a period. So I tried that. Didn't work. My hosts support asked if URL forwarding was an option. Is it?

    Hi,

    You can use it also with a period at the end, 

    Example : customerForms.my-company-domain.com CNAME custom.jotform2.com.

    We do not suggest you to use URL forwarding, but it's also available,too. But you have to use the URL that is given to you by Jotform.

    Example : 

    I have a form at address http://www.jotform.me/form/20743051477451

    Then I have to give that URL to my hosting provider to make URL forwarding from my domain such as ; 

    http://customerForms.eee.com/form/20743051477451 -> http://www.jotform.me/form/20743051477451

    Kindest Regards,

    Ertugrul.
