What is a custom domain?

A custom domain is a unique branded name that identifies a website. For example, members.coworkingspace.com or residents.coworkingspace.com are custom domains for the coworking space app. For this, it's enough to create a subdomain using a domain you already own. Some common choices for the subdomain to use:

  • members

  • portal

  • community

  • residents

  • app

  • miembros

Set up a custom domain

Before setting up a custom domain in your application, you must complete the setup on your domain registrar's side.

In your domain registrar account

  1. Log in to your domain registrar account.

  2. Open the DNS control panel.

  3. Create a new record with the following data:

Type

CNAME

Name

your subdomain, for example members, app or community

Value

ssl.andcards.com

TTL

leave the default value

Double-check the correctness of the data. Instructions for common registrars:

In your web app

After the setup is complete on the side of your domain registrar, please follow the steps below to configure it in your web app:

  1. The owner needs to go to the (...) More > Network Settings page in the app.

  2. You will be redirected to our marketing website > open the General page.

  3. Enter your full custom domain in the Web App section > Custom Domain field. For example, members.coworkingspace.com or app.coworkingspace.com.

Verify the setup

Once DNS records have been changed, they can take some to propagate, which means global DNS providers recognize they have been changed. Unlike nameserver changes, which can take up to 48 hours to propagate, the propagation of CNAME records is usually very quick.

A custom domain added to your web app will appear unverified until this process is complete and full propagation is achieved.

The owner of your app can check the propagation progress by clicking "Check the progress of propagation" under the "Custom Domain" field. The button redirects you to the DNS Checker website, where you can click "Search" and see if the propagation is complete.

Running your app on a custom domain is only available on specific plans.

FAQ

Why my custom domain doesn't work?

There may be a few reasons if your subdomain is not working.
1) You may have set the record incorrectly. Please double-check the accuracy of the data in the record you created in your DNS control panel.
2) If you purchased the domain through Vercel, it will need to be verified from our end to be working. Contact us to get it verified.
