Connecting a Custom Domain

Thanks to the Domain Mapping feature, users can connect domain names purchased from third-party providers (registrars) to their Boxmode websites. 

Please note that you can use this feature even without subscribing to the paid plan (Basic Annual). To connect your own domain name to your site, please follow the steps below.

  • Go to Project Settings in your Dashboard.
Project Settings
  • Click Manage Domains in the sidebar and open the Add Domain tab. You will see the list of unique DNS settings for your domain name.
Manage Domains
  • Log in to your personal account on your domain provider’s website and set the DNS parameters as specified in the list.

PLEASE NOTE: It may take up to 48 hours for the new DNS settings to take effect. However, you can connect a custom domain to your Boxmode website instantly, and then monitor its status in the Connected Domains tab.

  • Enter your domain name in the corresponding field and click Verify.
  • The initial verification result of your DNS settings will be displayed promptly below the field.
Domain Verification
  • Click Connect. You can then start monitoring the final status of the verification process in the Connected Domains tab.

Connecting a subdomain

If your primary domain (for instance, example.com) is used for another website, and you want to connect your Boxmode project to its subdomain (subdomain.example.com), please see the following instructions.

  • Go to Project Settings in your Dashboard. 
Project Settings
  • Click Manage Domains in the sidebar and open the Add Domain tab. You will see the list of unique DNS settings for your domain name.
Manage Domains
  • Log in to your personal account on your domain provider’s website and set only the CNAME parameter as specified in the list.

PLEASE NOTE: It may take up to 48 hours for the new DNS settings to take effect. However, you can connect a custom subdomain to your Boxmode website instantly, and then monitor its status in the Connected Domains tab.

  • Enter your subdomain name in the corresponding field and click Verify.
  • The initial verification result of your DNS settings will be displayed promptly below the field.  
Verification Domain
  • Click Connect. You can then start monitoring the final status of the verification process in the Connected Domains tab.

What is a primary domain?

You can connect an unlimited number of domain names to your Boxmode project. But when users navigate through any of the successfully connected domains, they will always be redirected to the primary domain.

What is an SSL certificate?

An SSL certificate is required to prevent the interception of the personal data that users provide on your site. Personal data includes logins and passwords from accounts, bank card information, email addresses, etc. 

If your site uses an SSL certificate, a secure connection is established between the client’s browser and the site.

Boxmode automatically generates and installs an SSL certificate on your website for free.

PLEASE NOTE: Generating and installing an SSL certificate may take some time, usually up to 10 minutes. Until the certificate for a newly added domain is created, you cannot set this domain as primary.
