This article provides detailed guidance on linking a domain name to your Spond Club website, allowing you to maintain a professional and branded online presence.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Go to your club's dashboard.

  2. Click 'Club website'.

  3. Select 'Theme'.

  4. Click 'Domain'.

Default Domain: In the 'Overview' tab, you'll find a domain URL representing the default domain provided by Spond. By default, this address will take the form of your club's name followed by .spond.club. For instance, if your club is named "Sporty," the URL will be https://sporty.spond.club.

Using Your Own Domain Hosted Outside of Spond: If you already own a domain hosted elsewhere, you can connect it to your Spond Club page.

To add your own domain:

  1. Navigate to 'Theme' in the overview on the left side of the portal.

  2. Select 'Domain' and paste the URL of your domain in 'Connect a domain you already own.'

  3. Finish by clicking 'Save'.


    On your Domain provider side, you have to add the DNS records (Type, name and value)
    You won't be notified when your domain provider accepts the change, so revisit this page. When the status changes from "pending" to "approved," click "activate domain" at the bottom right.

NOTE: Connecting your domain may result in temporary loss of access to your current website. Please check the implications of this change with your domain registrar before proceeding.

Before your start:

  • Ensure you have access to your domain's control panel or DNS settings. While Spond provides the necessary details, the actual changes must be implemented by you or your domain provider (eg., GoDaddy, Namecheap).

  • DNS propagation may take anywhere from a few minutes to 72 hours. During this time, the update will gradually take effect globally, eventually directing visitors to your new Spond website when they type in your domain.
