Hi, any chance you could use subdomains instead of paths for resolving a project? I.e.

project.username.documentup.com

instead of

documentup.com/username/project

This would allow us to use CNAMEs to mask a project's doc URL (e.g. www.shelljs.org could be CNAMEd to shelljs.arturadib.documentup.com).

Thanks for the superb service!

Hey @arturadib, I love your project. :)

I'm looking into actually supporting CNAMEs. I have lots of projects going on right now so it's difficult, but it could be done.

You know what. I'm working on this :)

I'm waiting for the DNS to propagate to be able to definitely say if it'll work though.

hmm I guess that doesn't work for what I intended to do (i.e. CNAME www.shelljs.org to it), probably because Heroku doesn't recognize the URL:

bummer!

Yea, I should have seen that coming.

I'll have to check my options. Maybe going back to self-hosting...

I've added your domain on heroku if you'd like to try it out :) That's the simplest fix I have found to make that happen.

@jeromegn
Owner

Indeed. I definitely know what's up and will try to fix that this evening :)

@arturadib

incredible, thank you Jerome!

This might take more time to figure it out.

Probably best to change your DNS back to what it used to be for now.
