Bring Your Own Domain Now Available for RunSignup Race Websites
April 18, 2019
Moorestown, NJ – RunSignup, the leading all-in-one platform for endurance and fundraising events in the U.S., now allows races to use their own custom domain with their RunSignup race website. Races who buy (or already own) a branded domain from a domain registrar (such as GoDaddy or Google Domains) can transfer that domain to RunSignup for free, keeping the race’s brand front and center while participants register.
RunSignup has offered free race websites since 2015 and continues to upgrade the offering with additional professional templates and increased flexibility. These data-driven sites are integrated with a race’s settings and participant info, allowing them to automatically display correct dates, times, pricing tiers, participant lookup, results, and photos. Additional advantages of the sites include a mobile-responsive design, built-in search engine optimization, and high availability. Races can add unlimited custom content and pages and edit their menu navigation.
Adding a custom URL to the race website has several specific advantages:
- A branded URL like “YourDomain.com” instead of the old “RunSignup.YourDomain.com”
- Free SSL Certificate
- The ability to setup subdomains to reinforce a primary brand or tie together multiple events
- Secure registration and payment processing without ever leaving your website
RunSignup Founder and CEO Bob Bickel said, “From the beginning, we wanted to build software that highlights the brand of each individual race. We want participants visiting a race website or receiving a race email to feel connected to the event. We’re excited to see custom domains take the concept of customer branding to the next level.”
