Note! Changing your URL name will break existing links to your publication, both on your own website and links that others may have made. If you have links to your publications, then you will need to change them accordingly.

 

How to change my domain?

When you work with FlippingBook Cloud, your publications will be uploaded to your own subdomain. This subdomain looks something like https://user-BFzY3Fl.cld.bz.

You can change the domain name on cld.bz only once. If you need to change it one more time, please contact our HelpDesk.
