Let’s assume your company’s website is acme.com, and you want to use the subdomain ask.acme.com to share your Tally forms. With Tally Pro, you can connect this subdomain to your Tally account and create pretty URLs for each form that could look like this:
Follow the steps below to connect your (sub)domain and start creating branded forms.
Domains in your sidebar and click
You can add either:
- a domain (e.g. acme.com)
- a subdomain (e.g. ask.acme.com)
After adding your domain, click on
Configuration tab. Here you will find the generated DNS records you need to add to your domain name provider’s setting, like Cloudflare, Namecheap, GoDaddy or others.
Wait until the DNS records are verified — this can take from a few seconds to a few hours due to the time your DNS takes to propagate.
When your domain resolves to our servers, Tally will automatically issue an SSL Certificate. When the status light turns green, your domain is active.
When the connection to your domain fails, the status will turn red.
Double-check the DNS records and click
Verify to retry.

When your domain is active, head to the
Domain tab to configure your domain settings.
To map your forms to your domain and customize your form URLs, select a published form from the dropdown list and give it a more memorable and shorter slug — the end part of your URL.
Don't forget to save your changes.
Click the three dots on the right to delete a URL or to change the metadata of each form.
You can control how your form URLs are displayed when shared on the web and social media. All you need to do is adjust the metadata information. You can do this individually for each form and for your domain.
To add metadata for your domain, go to
Domains page in your dashboard. Open the domain you want to edit and scroll down to the
Meta data section.
Here you can upload an image, title, and description for your domain. This metadata will be displayed when any forms hosted on this domain are shared online. The image, title, and description will be applied to all forms using this domain.
You can also configure metadata at the form level for individual URLs. To do this, click the dots next to a pretty URL and open
Page settings. Now you can adjust the meta title, description, and image.
Forms hosted on a custom (sub)domain are, by default, indexed by search engines. To disable indexing:
- Head to the
Domainspage in your dashboard
- Click on the domain name
- In the
Domaintab, scroll down to
- Copy and paste the code snippet below into the code injection box
<meta name="robots" content="noindex">
When you connect your custom domain to Tally, we automatically host your forms on our server. Tally also issues and renews SSL certificates, which encrypt the connection between your site and visitors' browsers for security.
You can upload a favicon for your domain. It’s a small icon or logo next to a website’s name in the browser tab. We recommend a square icon of at least 60x60 pixels.
Use the code injection block to further customize your forms. You can add tracking codes, Intercom, Hotjar, and other custom scripts or styles. Read more about how to use code injection here.
