How to Set Up a Custom Domain for your Web App

Map a pre-existing or newly purchased domain to your Web app.

Firstly, you should have purchased a domain from a third-party provider where it should be registered with them. You will just need to change a few settings in your registrar's account in order to connect it to your Web App.

How to add a custom domain to your web app, on Apps Creator?

Step 1: Login to your Apps Creator Dashboard and navigate to Manage>>Platforms.

Step 3: Add your Zype sub-domain and Custom Domain here. Your Zype sub-domain should work right out of the box, but any initial change to either domain will take about 5-10 minutes to propagate. Please note that your Custom Domain should be all lower case.

Additional configuration is required with your customer domain provider for linking the domain to your Web App. Follow the steps below to make the necessary changes to the DNS settings of your Custom Domain.

Step 1: Log into your third-party Domain Account, i.e. GoDaddy, Namecheap, easyDNS, HostGator, Name.com, etc.

Step 2: Find your DNS settings. Depending on your provider, this may be called Zone File Settings, Manage Domains, Domain Manager, DNS Manager, or something similar. Here is where you'll create these records so your domain correctly links to your Web App.

Step 3: Edit your CNAME Record in your Domain Account. A CNAME record points your custom domain to MAZ Web. The CNAME value is "ingress.maz.tv".

Step 4: Now edit the domain's A Record. This should point to Zype's IP Address which informs your domain provider of our software. The A Record value is "65.39.196.87". Your DNS management should look something like this after you make the changes:

Your custom domain should now be mapped to the Zype Web App. Most domains will connect to a site within 24 hours but can take up to 72 hours.
