πŸ“¬ Custom Domain

A WeWeb app comes automatically with a weweb-preview.io subdomain, served over SSL. For instance, yourapp.weweb-preview.io.

If you want to customize this and use your own domain name, you can do this in the Domains section of the project Settings Tab.

🚨 Keep in Mind 🚨

Depending on your registar, it can take up to 48 hours for your website to be live on your domain.

First, go to your Project Settings:

Here, click on "Domains", then on "Connect an existing domain name":

Here, type the domain you want to use and click Connect domain name:

🚨 Warning 🚨

WeWeb doesn’t support naked domain for the moment. Be sure to use a subdomain (the most common one is www)

Then, you’ll land on this page with the data you’ll have to setup on your domain’s registrar:

The first one (in red) is a CNAME record that you should add so that your site uses SSL (HTTPS).

The second one (in green) is a CNAME record too, that you should add to link your subdomain (here www) to the website.

For both, the Name is the subdomain you should add the value in Data to.

To help you, here is the documentation to do so for specific registrars:

If your registrar is not on this list, feel free to contact us in the chat.

🚨 Warning 🚨

Once redirected (it can take up to 48 hours depending on your registrar), your website should be live on your domain!
