To redirect your mobile site traffic to your own custom domain, you will need to set up a CNAME (canonical name) record.
A CNAME is a pointer to another domain name that is already defined.
The CNAME record in your DNS settings must be configured correctly.
Before you start the CNAME record configuration process, make sure:
- You have registered for a premium plan with Swiftic.
- You own a domain and you are able to access and change your domain settings.
Note: If you are unsure how to manage your DNS settings, please contact your domain provider for help.
Once you've signed up for any of our premium plans, your mobile site’s custom domain feature is automatically enabled.
To set up your custom domain:
- Sign in to your Swiftic account.
- Click Dashboard.
- Scroll down and click Edit in the Use a custom domain section.
- Enter your custom domain name and click Save (Please note: CNAMEs can only be used with subdomains, for example, m.mysite.com).
- Set up a CNAME on your custom domain’s DNS server, and point it to the value that appears under DNS configuration in the Use a custom domain box.
- To set up a CNAME, connect to your DNS admin dashboard on your DNS provider’s website. Next, go to your domains and change the required domain name pointing to the CNAME you’ve received from Swiftic.
