Domain Configuration

 
 
In the case you have an existing domain name, purchased via a hosting provider prior to creating a site in Camilyo, you would need to create a connection between the external domain and the domain provided by us for each site created. There are two parts to linking your custom domain to a Camilyo site:

1. Configuring the domain in your third-party domain hosting provider
2. Creating a redirection in Camilyo
In order to configure your custom domain to your new site created in Camilyo, you will need to log in to your third-party hosting provider (like GoDaddy, 1&1 etc.) account and create a CNAME record for your domain to point to your new site.

In your account, locate the DNS management zone and add two CNAME records- one for you custom domain (for example www.yourdomain.com) and one for your custom domain without www (your naked domain, for example yourdomain.com), both to point to your new site domain (for example yournewsitename.camilyo.com), in the following way:

Alias- www (for www.yourdomain.com or another relevant subdomain)
Type- CNAME
Points to- yournewsitename.camilyo.com

If your hosting provider doesn't allow to set a CNAME for your naked domain (yourdomain.com), you'll need to create an A record pointing your naked domain to our IP, in the following way:

Host- * or @ (for your naked domain)
Type- A record
Points To- the IP address of your instance, you can find it by opening a command window in your computer and perform nslookup for the specific site production subdomain (for example type: "nslookup sitename1.camilyo.co" to find the IP of the site "sitename1")
