Managing Multiple Sub-domains

Managing multiple sub-domains in GoBrunch requires individual logins for each one. Here’s a straightforward guide on how to efficiently manage and navigate between your GoBrunch sub-domains.

Accessing Events Across Sub-Domains

No matter which sub-domain you're currently logged into, you can view all your events by navigating to subdomain/myevents. This universal access point makes it easy to keep track of your activities across different sub-domains.

Logging Into Individual Sub-Domains

Each sub-domain in GoBrunch requires a separate login. Here’s how you can manage this process:

Initial Login to a Sub-Domain

  1. Navigate to your desired sub-domain, subdomain1/main.
  2. Click on "Sign out" at the top right corner of the page.
  3. Click on "Login".
  4. Enter your email and password, then click submit to access your space.
  5. Once logged in, you can join your space and you won’t need to log in again to this sub-domain until you sign out.

Switching to Another Sub-Domain

  1. To log into another sub-domain, go to subdomain2/main.
  2. Repeat the logout and login process:
    • Click on "Sign out" at the top right corner.
    • Click on "Login".
    • Type your email and password, then submit to join your space.
  3. After this, you won’t need to log into this sub-domain again unless you sign out.

This method ensures that you maintain separate sessions in each sub-domain, allowing for better management and organization of your spaces in GoBrunch.

Understanding Space Visibility Across Sub-Domains on GoBrunch

When you create spaces on GoBrunch, they are listed across all sub-domains without any filtering by sub-domain. This means that any space you create can be accessed from any GoBrunch sub-domain.

Here are some key points to understand:

  1. Universal Access: All spaces created on GoBrunch are universally accessible. For example, if you create a space within your specific sub-domain, it will also be visible from the main GoBrunch site (

  2. First Room Association: Associating a space with your sub-domain will always direct your attendees to the first room of your space. This ensures a consistent entry point for all visitors, but it also means that customizing the URL is not necessary, unless you have multiple spaces per sub-domain.
  3. Sub-Domain URL Customization: If you choose to customize the URL of your space from within your sub-domain, we advise caution. Customizing the URL can cause your space to no longer be accessible from Additionally, it might redirect users to a different space entirely, leading to confusion and potential accessibility issues.

  4. Best Practices: To ensure seamless access and avoid any issues, we recommend not customizing your space URLs from within sub-domains. Keeping the default URLs will maintain the visibility and accessibility of your spaces across all GoBrunch sub-domains.
