Add made pages to your own website / domain
Adobe Spark is really easy to use.
This is why it would be incredible if we would be able to turn pages into websites from your own domain.
Basically, so I can use it instead of making a page in Dreamweaver or Muse.
We are not planning on adding this feature to Spark Page. We do offer the ability to embed your Page, which you can access when you click “Share.”

Full frame embed it (in Muse) while keeping your menu structure and branding scheme. I just switched to this format and it looks fantastic.

I was just about to write another thread about this, and then I saw yours. I completely agree and wish this was a feature right now.

All that we need is to be able to manage the URL via a CNAME with our DNS. Tried to use Masked forwarding bur some reason Spark's CSS does not recognize devices when using as masked url and therefore letter font in Mobile UI becomes unreadable ( does desktop view )
I couldn't agree more. Especially for people who pay for CC, we should be able to attach an Adobe Spark webpage to a custom domain; or, at least, allow us to custom name the ending part of the regular Adobe Spark link. SurveyMonkey.com, for example, allows the user to customize the generated link, which is really nice.
agreed, it's not much of a benefit to have a page that begins with adobe.
But then if you've got a domain... why don't you install WordPress and use PageBuilder by Siteorigin to do exactly the same job as Adobe Spark but with far more control over the looks of the page?? That's what I've done up till now for portfolio or web pages, and been trying out Adobe Spark recently and I don't have anywhere near as much control over how the finished page looks, so there's no incentive for me to carry on using it.
The pagebuilder plugin is super simple to use too, yet very powerful, and doing it this way would be far cheaper then Spark Premium, with more control, more options, more options available at little or no extra cost, and you can get the SEO exactly right.... :) Enjoy!
Really the only good solution is for Adobe Spark to provide custom domain options with custom "A" Host Record that you will need to change your registrar record to point to.
I don't recommend forward masking. In this scenario, your registrar will load a page containing a frame. Google and other search engines often will not index sites that use forward masking. If you are forwarding your domain DO NOT use domain forwarding with masking.
You'll run into the same search optimization problems using iframes.
Let's hope Adobe Spark come out with a new Custom Domains feature soon.
Definitely need domain, or at very least have a customisable URL
Recently changed my website to Adobe Portfolio and used spark pages embedded within the main portfolio. Actually being able to have the spark pages within Adobe Portfolio would be so much better especially with my own domain name included included as part of the URL. Why there isn't this integration between Spark and Portfolio I'm not sure.

IDEA: Build the option to move the websites created in Spark Page to a domain name chosen by the user. Perhaps you could make this a one-time payment service.
OR consider giving the possibility for the user to choose a different domain name - where you are still hosting - if you prefer that? Then you could have a monthly revenue for the hosting etc.
Its very(!) important for the me as a user of your free fantastic tool, to have the option of naming my site what i want. Thanks for a GREAT website tool! It looks amaaaaaziiiiing!

Found a work around...use URL masking in your domain control panel.
General directions here: https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/385/2237/how-do-i-set-up-a-url-redirect-for-a-domain
Make sure you use MASKING. The other option is a regular redirect, which means the visitor will see the Adobe Spark URL.
Worked great for me!

It looks very unprofessional to share a link with adobe URL. There should be a way to add your own domain where the pages are published.
Although Adobe are now giving 100GB of data with their cloud it's still woefully low for a digital creative to want to share that space with web hosting. ?Especially when you think some companies like yahoo will give you a free terabyte of photo storage through Flickr. I had a play with Spark. It's really nice but not a solution if it means Spark Projects start to slowly clog up critical workflow storage.
It would be great to have this capability, but as a work-around, you can put it in an iFrame (html5) on your site. Here's more about alternatives from Stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8702704/alternative-to-iframes-with-html5
Yes! I created a lovely page in Spark and now I have to recreate it elsewhere because I cannot use it with my own domain. Very frustrating.
Yes, a person can forward a domain with "masking' but it shrinks the text way too much be useful. If you added domain support you could avoid this masking side effect. This is something that many people (including myself) would be willing to pay for - not much but enough to make it worth your while.

I would love the ability to host Spark Pages on my own website. Or allow the embed feature to automatically open in the fully expanded mode instead of making my users click to expand.
I am in the process of revolutionizing my website using MUSE and SPARK. I just copy the embed code from spark, in my MUSE page I drop it into Object> Insert HTML paste the embed code in the box click enter, resize the box to fit the page and we're off to the races. You might have to fiddle about a bit to get the right resize values but I can create three new pages a day with SPARK instead a one new page in Three days, so what's a little fiddling around compared to the time and frustration saved.
Like everything else in Spark it works like a charm.
