Setting up a Custom Domain
Account owners/admins on our Enterprise plans can set up custom domains, so that their Qwilr Pages are served from a URL on their 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.
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.
Head to Settings > Setup Brand and then go to Custom Domains.
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 save.
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.
