When you create a Bloom account, you're provided a unique Bloom URL (eg. This URL is used for your Bloom website and client portal and is the first part of your invoice and form URLs. If you have purchased a domain, you can use it instead for your Bloom website, and it will replace the "" Bloom URL.

Not everybody needs to set up a custom domain. You should set a custom domain if:

  • You own a domain name and want to use a Bloom website together with your custom domain name.

  • You want to remove Bloom from the URLs in your invoices, forms, and client portal.

If you already have an external website that you wish to use, you can, and setting a custom domain is not a required step.

  • Important: DNS changes can sometimes take up to 72 hours to take effect but are typically much faster.

    In summary:

    So A record will point >

    C name will point www >
