Your calendar URL is the web address where your calendar can be visited online. We created a URL for your calendar based on the Calendar Name you selected when you signed up for an account.
For example, if the name of your calendar is My Awesome Calendar, then we may have created a URL for your calendar at my-awesome-calendar.loxi.io.
You will see the calendar URL setting right after your calendar name setting. To change the calendar URL, type a new address in the field and save your settings.
Formatting Your URL
Your calendar URL must contain no spaces or special characters, though you can connect words with hyphens or underscores. For example:
Pro tip: No two Loxi calendars can have the same URL. If you select a URL that is already in use by another Loxi calendar, you will be prompted to try another option.
Using Your Own Domain or Web Address
You might prefer to use a completely custom web address for your calendar. While all Loxi calendars are a subdomain of loxi.io and a URL is required in your Calendar Settings screen, there are still ways that you can use your own custom web address to point people to your calendar.
Embed the Calendar on Your Site
You can embed your Loxi calendar on any webpage you have access to edit and embedding your Loxi calendar on a website has no impact on your website’s URL. That means you can use any webpage as the home for your calendar by embedding the calendar on the page.

Redirect a Custom Domain
If you have a domain (e.g. example.com), then you can set that domain to forward to your Loxi calendar address. Your domain registrar or host will be able to provide you with the settings to make that happen, but here are the instructions for a few popular providers:
- GoDaddy instructions
- Bluehost instructions
- Hover.com instructions
- 1&1 instructions
- NameCheap instructions
Your host provider will often allow you to redirect a specific address (e.g. example.com/calendar) using similar instructions.
