Are you struggling to engage your website visitors? Do you wish to create a personalized online experience for them? Look no further than FacePop, the customizable video widget designed to enhance customer interaction and engagement.

FacePop offers a wide range of features, including tailored call-to-action modes for optimized engagement and conversion, seamless funneling for creating an uninterrupted customer journey, and an integrated input field for easy email collection. With its integrated calendar booking feature, extensive customization options, and user targeting based on specific criteria, FacePop aims to revolutionize the way businesses interact with their customers.

But what sets FacePop apart from its competitors is its CNAME feature. Simply put, CNAME is a DNS record that allows you to replace the default domain name of your FacePop widget with a custom domain. This means that instead of displaying FacePop's default domain in your widget's URL, you can now use your own domain name.

The benefits of using a custom domain are immense. Along with creating brand awareness and enhancing your website's credibility, it can also help you track and analyze your widget's performance. Moreover, customers are more likely to trust and engage with a website that uses its own domain, as opposed to a generic one.

But how can you set up a CNAME for your FacePop widget? Let's take a closer look.
