Bring your own domain
Personalize your portal by bringing your own domain.
By default Digital Freight Portal will serve your portals instance as a self-chosen subdomain under qwykportals.com (or next.qwykportals.com) You can however elect to bind your own (sub-)domain and allow your visitor to access your portal using a URL they recognise as trusted.
A standard portals url with your own chosen prefix but our root.
A custom domain
This can prove convenient when running multiple services (like an FTP server and a web server, each running on different ports) from a single IP address. One can, for example, point ftp.example.com and www.example.com to the DNS entry for example.com, which in turn has an A record which points to the IP address. Then, if the IP address ever changes, one only has to record the change in one place within the network: in the DNS A record for example.com.CNAME records must always point to another domain name, never directly to an IP address.
The goal of this guide is to setup domain alias to point to your QwykPortals instance so people can use that address to visit your portal.
We recommend choosing a domain name that's not too long and easy to remember for your customers. This can be for example: portal.your-domain.com, or any variant of
customersor we personally think
myis really good.
For the purposes of this guide we'll choose my.digitalfreight.company as the domain at which we'd like the portal to be available.
Follow the provided steps provided by your DNS provider, creating a CNAME record for the domain you chose in the first step pointing to:
NAME TYPE VALUE
my.digitalfreight.company. CNAME hosting.qwykportals.com.
Guides for common DNS providers:
If your DNS provider is not listed, you can either check their support page or use a search engine to search for "How to create a CNAME record on [YOUR DOMAIN PROVIDER]"
We've created a CNAME record for the requested domain to point to my.digitalfreight.company and would like you to activate the redirection.Thank you,
As we will add your domain to our hosting.qwykportals.com SSL certificate, the CNAME record needs to be created before you send us your request, and it may take a moment for changes to propagate.
