Setting Up Custom Domain

Changing domains

The process overview:

  • Have a custom domain (yourdomain.com) or a subdomain with access to change its DNS entries at the domain registrar
  • Map your custom domain, yourdomain.com, or subdomain, app.yourdomain.com to your app's FQDN in CNAME or A record of DNA settings of the domain registrar
  • When the above mapping is saved, the plugin gives the DNS entries to update in your Zappter admin to your custom domain as discussed above
  • Finally, confirm your domain changes by updating your DNS entries (in the Zappter admin)
  • Wait for DNS probation 
Steps to changing your web app with a custom domain:
1. Admin > Web-App/Domain > Connect Domain. Click on the '+New Domain' button.
