If I create a sub domain name for one of my forms for my domain name
How do I install my jotform form << https://form.jotform.com/61705555130146 >>
to appear when visitors go to

Unfortunately, we do not have any video for this. Depending on the server you have/using, it can vary a lot. If you can provide us with information of the type of web hosting server you have, we may better assist you. As it indicates in our guide, you have to add a DNS record in your server that points to your form.
- VinchenzAnswered on July 18, 2016 at 07:45 PMOk I'm with hostgator.
I have cpanel
and I set up a Sub domain name of Dental365 for a client where I would like
to host this form - https://form.jotform.com/61705555130146
so my link would look like this
I could just add a redirect on my cpanel for this sub domain name
but the Jot form address would still show up once the client clicked on my new link
So I'm told to go to the Simple DNS Zone Editor
< https://www.google.com/search?q=add+a+dns+record+add+a+cname+record+on+hostgator&oq=add+a+DNS+record%3A+Add+a+CNAME+record+on+hostg&gs_l=serp.1.0.33i21.6112.8077.0.105220.127.116.11.0.0.0.131.705.8j1.9.0....0...1c.1.64.serp..0.4.349.YgMoJGlDn8k >
and pick the domain name
which in this case is FiveStarBusinessReviews.com
and ADD a Record Name and Address.
If I choose Dental365 as the name,
it then is looking for an IP address to add a record for it.
So I skipped down to the section to ADD CNAME Record
I then add DENTAL365.FiveStarBusinessReviews.com
For name and record, and add CNAME
So It looks like I am missing a step
where I can actually point the form https://form.jotform.com/61705555130146
to this location http://dental365.fivestarbusinessreviews.com/

I have checked the guide on the link you provided and I can see there is not asking for an IP address, as you already noticed there is not any IP address given on the guide about how to set up a custom domain.
On the guide you can see that there is a page where you can add your sub domain and the CNAME ( from JotForm).
Are you getting a different page when trying this on your end?
Please provide us a screenshot about it so we can know what you're seeing.
This guide will help you to upload an image with your next reply:
- VinchenzAnswered on July 18, 2016 at 10:45 PMYes here is the screen shot for adding a CNAME
I set up the name of Dental365.FiveStarBusinessReviews.com
and entered the same name for the CNAME
should I be using Unbouncespages.com for the CNAME and not my sub domain name?
I am trying to mask / hide my form name URL of https://form.jotform.com/61705555130146
to be Dental365.FiveStarBusinessReviews.com
How can I do this?
- JotForm SupportjonathanAnswered on July 19, 2016 at 12:48 AM
The added new CNAME record should have value custom.jotform2.com
as described on the user guide How-to-use-Custom-Domains-with-Jotform
Think of it as an alias of your actual domain name.. so when your domain is used, it should redirect to your domain.
Let us know if you are still not able to make it work.
- VinchenzAnswered on July 19, 2016 at 04:45 PMOk it's working now, I'm not sure if the delay was on my hostgator side or not, but the link is working as described.
Thanks for your help
