If you wish to use Desktop App host-name branding, then you need to know the following: 

The Desktop App is constructed in a way that also embeds a Desktop Reader. That is why Visiolink need two different host-names from you.

  • One host-name - used for the Desktop App and will be the one used in the links and is visible in the browser address bar
    • e.g. "" that need to be a CNAME alias for ""
  • And another host-name - used for the embedded Desktop Reader
    • e.g. "" that need to be a CNAME alias for ""

NB. It's customary to use host-names that are subdomains of newspaper website domain.

- e.g. if your site is "", the new host-names should be subdomains of ""
