IDX Broker Original Knowledge Base: Domain Control
After adding a new subdomain to your account, the menu and any widget URL links in your wrapper and on your site will no longer be valid. Simply replace the root domain in each with your new subdomain. IDX Broker will automatically display the correct custom and system links in your control panel, however, the live links on your site will not be automatically updated when you create a subdomain for your IDX pages.
If you are using the WordPress Plugin, you will simply need to modify the subdomain in your IDX Broker plugin settings page in order to update all of the links on your WordPress site.
How do I create a new CNAME?
This requires some knowledge of the self-service domain management platform provided by your ISP. If you don't feel comfortable managing the CNAME yourself, please contact your ISP to have them create the CNAME for you.
Note: Point2 does not provide a way for you to add a CNAME to your 3rd level domains yourself. If you are a Point2 customer, you may contact them directly to accomplish this, or register one or more primary domains with GoDaddy or another ISP that offers DNS control, or domain management.
If you are using GoDaddy customer, or want to move your DNS Control to GoDaddy, here is an article that provides instructions for setting up a CNAME with GoDaddy.

My CNAME is setup, what now?
Below are the steps you need to take in order to establish and confirm your custom subdomain for IDX Broker page links:
After switching to a custom subdomain, you'll need to do a few things. First, make sure that you update the URL's of any IDX links you've already pasted into your website or IDX global wrapper to match this new structure. Typically, this can be accomplished with a find & replace.
Next, go to My Preferences and scroll down to Map Options to update your Google API key.
Finally, if you have walk score enabled on your property details pages (set via your preferences page) you will need to sign up for a custom key for the service on your custom domain and copy it into the box on the left under Account Management --> Domain Control.
