Setting Up a Subdomain

If you have your own domain, and would like to use the same domain to point to your Teachable school, you'll have to create a subdomain. A subdomain is a second website that has its own unique content, but the same root domain. For example, if you already have a website at "popcorn.com", you could create a subdomain (i.e. school.popcorn.com) that points to your Teachable school. This article goes over how to add a custom domain using a subdomain to your Teachable school.
