Customize Your Assessment Links (URLs)

Do you want to hide all QuestBase references from the links of your assessments or exams? For example let's say you are a company and want to use QuestBase as your official assessment and certification tool, but don't want to let others know you're using a third-party service provider: now you can do that!

Each exam you create in QuestBase has a unique address (called URL), for example: http://my.questbase.com/take.aspx?pin=5236-2443-2262 As you can see, the name QuestBase appears in the address. Using this new feature, instead, you could have a custom address, for example http://assessments.mycompany.com/take.aspx?pin=5236-2443-2262, thus hiding the name QuestBase.

You can customize 2 types of addresses: the address of each assessment and the address of the page where students go to login and take exams (of course only if you're using this feature, because you don't always need to setup students). Let's see both customizations in detail. First of all, however, please note these customizations are available for QuestBase Premium Gold account types only.

Customize Assessment URLs

Before we can start, be sure you have access to your domain's DNS settings: if you don't, you need to ask for help to your domain manager or system administrator. Now you have the domain http://www.mycompany.com and you want to publish tests with the address http://assessments.mycompany.com

  • Go to your DNS provider (for example, GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.) and login to the control panel for your domain mycompany.com
  • Edit your DNS zones by adding a new CNAME (Alias) record. For example, here's the screenshot for GoDaddy:

  • In the Host field, enter your chosen address (for example, enter "assessments" if you want to use the URL http://assessments.mycompany.com)
  • In the Points to field, enter "take.questbase.com"
  • In the TTL field, leave the default value (usually 1 Hour)
  • Now save your changes and wait up to 24/48 hours for the changes to propagate through the Internet. After this period, you'll be able to load your assessments from http://assessments.mycompany.com (for example, http://assessments.mycompany.com/take.aspx?pin=5236-2443-2262)

Customize the Students Login URL

QuestBase also allows you to customize the address where your students go to login and take tests. By default, the Students login page is at http://www.questbase.com/a/your_account_name (you can customize "your_account_name", see page 45 of the QuestBase Tutorial) but let's say you don't want the word "questbase" to appear in the address (URL), but instead you want the Students login page to be at http://students.mycompany.com (with no "questbase" references).

  • Login to QuestBase and in your My Profile window, Account tab, change your Link (URL) to match exactly your chosen domain (without the starting "http://", for example "students.mycompany.com")


  • Now go to your DNS provider (for example, GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.) and login to the control panel for your domain mycompany.com
  • Edit your DNS zones by adding a new CNAME (Alias) record. For example, here's the screenshot for GoDaddy:
  • In the Host field, enter your chosen address (for example, enter "students" if you want to use the URL http://students.mycompany.com)
  • In the Points to field, enter "login.questbase.com"
  • In the TTL field, leave the default value (usually 1 Hour)
  • Now save your changes and wait up to 24/48 hours for the changes to propagate through the Internet. After this period, you'll be able to load your Students login page from http://students.mycompany.com

That's all! Of course, if you have any problems don't hesitate to contact us!
