How to set up a Custom Domain?

Last Updated September 13, 2022

If you have a custom domain name that you want to use with our service, you can easily associate it with your account. Once added, we will add the domain to our hosting and set it as the default domain name for your URLs. 

DNS changes could take up to 36 hours.


HTTPS and SSL

If you are planning to serve SSL on your domain name, we recommend using Cloudflare.

But, if you don't want to go with Cloudflare, we can provide you with an SSL certificate to your domain at an additional cost. 

Price: $10.00 For one Year.


Debugging a domain that isn't routing correctly

The easiest way to check if your domain is correctly configured or not is by checking if requests to the domain redirect to a page like this  https://link.bloggr.xyz.

If your domain doesn't redirect and shows the mentioned page, this is usually due to a DNS configuration error.

You should confirm that your DNS records are correctly configured as described below and do not contain any conflicts. If you continue to face issues kindly reach out to support.

Please 📝Note: A domain name should point only to one IP at the same time. You can not point a domain to our IP that is already pointing to your or another server's IP. Otherwise, either replace your IP with Linko IP or use a sub-domain.
