So, you have your own domain and want to use it with your Tokeet website? No problem! Tokeet makes this easy by allowing you to use any domain for your custom website. If you don't have a custom domain you may purchase one easily from any domain registrar online. Once you have your domain, you'll need to perform a few simple steps to make it point to your Tokeet website.
- Configuring your website in Tokeet
- Navigate to Websites and select your website, or create a new website
- Click “Configure”
- Enter in your own domain name and click “Save”
- Once complete, Tokeet will accept requests for this domain and serve the corresponding website.
Note: Tokeet recommends using something other than www for your domain, as it's not possible to CNAME "domain.com" and requires some HTML knowledge to redirect "domain.com" to "www.domain.com".
2. Configuring DNS to point your domain to Tokeet
Now you must configure the DNS settings of your domain to point to Tokeet.
- Login to your domain registrar's website and locate the DNS (Domain Name System) settings for your domain.
- Create a new CNAME record pointing something.your-domain.com to
- Edit the A Record pointing to something.your-domain.com to 22.214.171.124
If you're using a subdomain: example, something.your-domain.com: you only need to create a CNAME pointing something.your-domain.com to
websites.tokeet.com. You can skip the A record configuration.
This is an example of proper CNAME configuration.
Note: Wait about an hour for your DNS settings to activate. If your custom domain still isn't taking you to your website, wait another day or two to make sure all the DNS servers have been updated. If it still isn't working, contact your registrar to make sure you entered the DNS settings correctly.
3. If you would like for your website to be secure (https:// )
Tokeet must issue you an SSL certificate. Please contact us through chat or at firstname.lastname@example.org and request the SSL certificate for your custom website. You will receive an email from Amazon with a request to approve secure certificates for your domain. Once the certificates are issued, you will need to update your CNAME record one last time. Tokeet will provide you the CNAME for your secure site.
