Setting up a Custom Domain

If you are an account owner or admin on our Enterprise plan, you can set up a custom domain, so that your Qwilr Pages are served from a URL on your own domains — like proposals.acme.com/xyz (instead of qwilr.com/xyz or acme.qwilr.com/xyz).

Note: Custom domains are available for Enterprise customers only.

Setup

Please wait to change the setting in your Qwilr account until you've added the DNS for optimal results.

Via your DNS Host

Head to wherever you host your DNS (generally your webhost) and go to the DNS settings. From there, add a new CNAME record and have it point to custom-domains.qwilr.com . 

You'll generally see these fields, although they may have slightly different names or a different display with your host:

If you wanted the domain proposals.mydomain.com you would:

  • In the Name field add "proposals"
  • In the Type field make sure it's CNAME
  • For Value add custom-domains.qwilr.com

Note: It may take up to 24 hours for the CNAME redirect to fully work.

Qwilr Settings

Click on your initials in the top right corner of the Qwilr window, then select View All Settings. Click Custom Domain in the left menu.

Enter in the domain you want to use.  It does need to be in a sub-domain format. So for example if your domain is acme.com you can't have just acme.com as your custom domain. It would need to be something like proposals.acme.com (or projects.acme.com, etc).

Once you've added it, click Save Custom Domain.

Common Provider Instructions

Your host is always going to be the best resource for DNS help, but we've compiled some links directly to some common domain provider's help documents. If you run into any troubles, please be sure to contact your host.
