Prerequisites: Domain Name

desimaniac edited this page Oct 21, 2019 · 42 revisions

You will need a domain name as Cloudbox apps are only accessed via https://appname.yourdomain.com (see Basics: Accessing Cloudbox Apps). The steps below will help you set up a domain and DNS settings for use with Cloudbox.

1. Domain Provider

Get a domain name from any domain name registry (e.g. Namecheap, Godaddy, Namesilo, etc).

If you already have one, you may skip this step.

Note: Free domain name providers, such as Freenom, do not support wildcard DNS settings, and paid domain names can be had for less than a dollar per year (see promo deals on various sites). However, you can add them to Cloudflare and not have to worry about it.

2. DNS Setup

Pick one of the setups below. This will on whether you meet certain criteria, as listed under the "Notes" section.

i. Wildcard DNS Setup

Notes:

Steps:

Created an A Record for your subdomains with * for host and set the value to your server IP address.

Type Host Value TTL
A Record * Server IP Address 300
Example

Namecheap > Domain List > Manage > Advanced DNS > Add New Record > A Record > * for Host > Server IP for Value.

ii. Non-Wildcard DNS Setup

Notes:
