Impotant Note Unfortunately the Vimeo staff will not be able to offer support for all the issues or problems that may occur when setting up a domain. We strongly suggest asking a friend who has done this before for help, or see if one of your fellow Vimeo members can give any advice in the thread below.

Again, the Vimeo Staff will NOT be able to offer much advice beyond these instructions.

As a Vimeo PRO member, you can use a custom domain name for your Portfolios (example: example.com). You can easily use a domain you already own, or purchase a domain name elsewhere, then follow these instructions. If you already own the domain name you want to use, you can skip step number 1.

  1. Purchase the domain name from a registrar such as GoDaddy, Me-Net, or Register.com. This can be done for about $10 per year.
  2. If you want your Portfolio to live on your top-level domain such as “example.com” then you will want to follow the registrar’s instructions to set the domain’s A-Record to 74.113.233.155 Learn more about A-Records en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_record#A
  3. If you want your portfolio to live on a subdomain such as “videos.example.com” then you will need to add a CNAME Record pointing to vimeopro.com Learn more about CNAME records en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNAME_record)
  4. You may have to wait up to 72 hours for these changes to take effect on the whole Internets.
  5. You can test your domain by using the “check domain” link on the Portfolio settings page.

If you have more questions, you can try posting below to see if your fellow Vimeo Community members can help you. We also suggest asking a friend who has set up custom domains before for help.

Can custom domains point to more than one portfolio? I don't know if this is a Vimeo limitation or not. I can enter a custom domain in the Portfolio settings page. However, if I create a second Portfolio, I am not able to use the same custom domain name. I thought I could use custom.domain.com/secondportfolio, but I can't. Thus, I don't know whose limitation that is: Vimeo's or the Internets'. Thanks.

I'm up against the same issue...urgent b/c I have a client waiting on me!! I'm simply trying to set up a subdomain to point to a portfolio...
so it would be: mydomain.com/myportfolio
have you made any headway with this or discovered a solution??
thanks!! Paul

I couldn't find a solution for this either. It almost looks to me that the idea is, that one would only have one portfolio per domain/subdomain. But I don't want to make a new subdomain for each and every new portfolio. It would make more sense to do something like video.domain.com/portfolioname.
Is there any solution for this or is it intended to be one portfolio per domain?
Thanks! Tobias

Hello I interested in the Pro package but i need to find out more about the custom domains. So can I set up something like below please?

Is this possible to do for all portfolio's?

Thank You

Hi Kiowa,

This is indeed possible. You have to add a CNAME record with your registrar for each subdomain you would like to use.

If you hosted thru Godaddy, they'll do it for you, very quick. Basically you can go to the website
of your hosting company, login and activate URL forwarding & masking (masking prevents when clients type in 'awesome.com', them seeing the page load with the gobbley-gook 'real' URL.
Then cut n paste your actual portfolio URL into the appropriate 'forward from' box under the URL forward/masking section. Put your 'awesome.com' address into the 'forward to' text box. Worked for me?

resonation

resonation PRO

I'd like to be able to integrate my portfolio page into my existing website (i.e. resonationmusic.com/tv_work.html) however there doesn't seem to be a way to create links BACK to other pages on my site FROM a portfolio page. Kind of like a dead end? Is the idea is for the Portfolio page to open in a new, separate window? (so the rest of my site; links to other pages etc. remain open separately in the original browser window?) That doesn't seem very elegant though.

I looked in the portfolio settings under the "connections" tab and thought I'd found the answer in the "Add another link" drop down menu, however the options are all to preexisting networking/content creation sites - no option to type in a link to your own site.

The only other thing I can think of is to type the various URLS of teh other pages on my website into the "Description" field of the Basic Info section in Settings, however we are warned not to enter HTML (does a link to another page count?)

If this inquiry makes any sense to anyone I'd really appreciate some thoughts or insights. Thanks:

Can a portfolio which is assigned to a domain be behind a pay wall or not? I'm going to do this myself, but before I start working on it, I was hoping whether someone could tell me "sorry that cannot be done" so I could save some time, or the opposite of course.

I think you can see what I want to do, make the portfolio only accessable to persons logged in as members.

Because what it seems to me right now is that the portfolio can only live at the top of the domain or subdomain.... in other word the portfolio can be at example.com or abc.example.com but not at example.com/members or abc.example.com/members

Yeah, same thing here. Just going right to the vimeo pro landing page.

It's also telling me that my A record is fine, but I need to change the CNAME, which I did. Then I took out the A record (not sure why I had to do that) but it's still telling me the CNAME is not okay. Pretty frustrating.

Eventually it's working. After the weekend the CNAME directed me to the portfolio. I don't know if someone of the staff adjusted something, or that the DNS adjustments needed that amount of time to work properly, but it's working.

Just to be clear: When you want to use a CNAME to direct to a portfolio, just create a CNAME alias that points to vimeopro.com (just that, nothing more) like the notes at the top of this subject mention. The Vimeo servers will redirect the incoming traffic to the right portfolio. You don't need to do anything more to get it going.

I am looking for a solution for putting a custom URL to a portfolio that live in a password protected area of our site. It is my understanding that even though I can create a custom URL, that the portfolio still live on Vimeo and once someone sees the URL/Code, then can easily distribute the portfolio domain? Is this correct?

I also know you can password protect the portfolio, but we have many users each with a unique UN/PW that we want to use to give them access to certain content that we do NOT want distributed. The password feature there is to set a MASTER password, which will not work.

Any help on this would be great! I am very surprised that there is not the ability to EMBED a portfolio. We had a service before that allowed us to create playlists (aka portfolios) then Embed them on protected pages on our site.

Thanks for any help

Synergy Web Video

I've just signed up for Vimeo Pro and was hoping to use this VP website as my new website. The hope was when customers punch in synergywebvideo.com, it would directly take them to the website I've created on Vimeo Pro. I've directed the domain’s A-Record to 74.113.233.155 as directed, but when I type in my web address, it takes me to the page advertising Vimeo Pro - the one that says "Get Pro - Learn more." So I have two questions: a) is it possible to have a domain name that doesn't have Vimeo anywhere in the address (like synergywebvideo.com - right now the only way to get to the Synergy Web Video web site is to have vimeopro.com/synergywebvideo/synergy-web-video and b) if so, how does one make that happen.
Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Marvy Media

The documentation for setting up custom domains is confusing. What you need to do is change CNAME to point to vimeopro.com (note no www) if your site address is to be of the form mywebsite.com
If the link will be bridesname.mywebsite.com then add an A record (bridesname) to point to vimeopro.com (again note that there is no www)
Do not delete the CNAME
Then on Basic Info page under Portfolio URL tick Custom & then add the URL either mywebsite.com if you changed the CNAME or of the form bridesname.mywebsite.com if you are using a sub-domain & changed the A record

So when someone types in bridesname.mywebsite.com a lookup in the DNS sees that it points to vimeopro.com & the request is redirected. Then at vimeopro.com it 'knows' which Portfolio page you have linked to bridesname.mywebsite.com

Hi, Thinking about upgrading to PRO, mainly for the custom domain feature. I would like to allowed users to view videos that are normally blocked to them ie they have a corporate firewall that blocks all video services. If I chose vimeo PRO and pointed a domain ("example.com") CNAME to the provided by vimeo IP will users still be blocked ?as the return path still be from vimeo and therefore blocked. Or does the users security things the video are coming from "example.com". Or even better is there another way to mask this on a plus account?

The videos are still hosted by us and would probably be blocked.

Sorry, I was referring to the blocking of Videos by corporate firewalls.

Or should we just accept that some customers just cannot view our content in their workplace?

You can tell them to ask their IT dept. to whitelist *.vimeo.com and *.vimeocdn.com - that should solve it.

As per Croon :::: Just to be clear: When you want to use a CNAME to direct to a portfolio, just create a CNAME alias that points to vimeopro.com (just that, nothing more) like the notes at the top of this subject mention.

(And you need the set your portfolio name to your custom domain name)

But The Vimeo servers will redirect the incoming traffic to the right portfolio.

Until the Vimeo servers get set up the VIMEO pro home page will show - is this correct?

Or have I missed a step?

Turnpike Digital

Turnpike Digital PRO

FOR ANYONE WANTING MULTIPLE PORTFOLIOS WITHOUT CREATING NEW SUBDOMAINS: Use wildcard sub-subdomains!! Once you set it up, you can create as many portfolios as you want with custom URLs without having to edit any zone files.

To get it working, you have to create a new A Record or CNAME record in your website's DNS manager. Either will work. Vimeo suggests a CNAME record. Godaddy can only do A records.

First choose your subdomain. This will be the same for all your URLs, so make it something like "portfolios" or "playlists". Your URLs will look like 3dreel.portfolios.example.com.

Now to edit the DNS on your website. If you're doing an A record, it will look like *.portfolios pointing to 74.113.233.155 (Vimeo's IP). For a CNAME, *.portfolios will point to vimeopro.com.

Once the changes take effect (5 minutes - 3 days), you can set your portfolios to use custom URLs! Note that they must have .portfolios.example.com after them (or whatever subdomain you chose).

Hope this helps!

Hi, this is actually not a problem with the custom domain setup. We have that working just fine. This a question about embedding the individual videos using the custom domain in the URL.

Currently we have videos embedded on many of our website pages using the iframe embed code. For example:
iframe src='player.vimeo.com/video/12345678';

So now we have the custom domain setup and we want to swap in the custom domain into the code. You would think the code would look like ....
iframe src='videos.mysite.com/video/12345678';

But no. Instead of showing the video in a player like the first URL - what you see with the second URL the video displayed in the portfolio page along with the thumbnails of the other videos. This will not work for us. We want to be able to have individual videos embedded on multiple web pages - not have a single portfolio page.

Please advise us on the proper embed code so we can embed individual videos using our domain name.

Hi there, Using a custom domain doesn't change the fact that Vimeo is hosting the videos. You'll use the same embed code you find on the embed tab of your Settings page, with player.vimeo.com in it.

If you're still having trouble please contact us here: vimeo.com/help/contact

I'm gonna close this thread cuz it's a bit old and part of it are out-dated. :)
