How can I create a custom URL for my brand specific Support area?

I am struggling with setting up a custom URL for a brand specific support area. All I get to see is "mainaccount.freshdesk.com" but "specialbrand.freshdesk.com" is not generated by the system. I don't want to set a cname record that forwards help.specialbrand.com to "mainaccount.freshdesk.com" but rather would like "help.specialbrand.com" go to "specialbrand.freshdesk.com".


I spent a couple of ours under admin/products and could really use some help.

Hi Jess

At present CNAME is the only way to get the Custom Domain Name, we will not allow the option like www.freshdesk.com/support

Hi Klaus

You can only use CNAME method for Multiple Portal option. Because subportalbrandname.freshdesk.com will not work in this model. we will never allow you to create a Freshdesk URL from an existing Freshdesk account.

Using CNAME is the only option

Or is there a way to have something like mainaccount.freshdesk.com/portal/subbrand ??

Is there any other way to get directly into the custom portal than the CNAME thing?
