Custom Domain Setting

What is a custom domain
SlashPage allows you to connect your own personal domain to your site. This is called the custom domain feature.
If you have a domain, connect it right away.
You can set up your custom domain in Site Settings → Custom Domains.
Connect a custom domain
Connect your site created with SlashPage to a domain purchased from your DNS hosting provider.
Register a Custom Domain
The first step is to register your domain with SlashPage as a custom domain.
This is the registration of your personal domain information on the SlashPage.
The next step is to register SlashPage information in your domain settings.
Set up your CNAME
You need to register a CNAME record at the DNS hosting company you purchased (GoDaddy, Google Domains, Amazon Web Service, etc.).
Click on the following menu: DNS Settings, Domain Settings, Manage Domains.
On the DNS Settings page, look for a value like CNAME, CNAME record, or Canonical Name.
Then enter the following information
Host or Name
Target or Points to or Value
Amazon Web Service DNS setting
After you change your domain's settings, it might take a while for the changes to spread around the world. You might have to wait as little as a few minutes or as long as 48 hours.
To check if the changes have taken effect, you can check the status at sites like the G Suite toolbox or DNSChecker, or use the dig or nslookup commands in Terminal.
SlashPage will continue to check to make sure the DNS CNAME settings in step 2 are correct after step 1.

If you're done and see the above screen, please wait for the DNS verification process to finish.
Wait for certificate issuance
At this point, everything you need to do is done. You'll need a certificate to use the custom domain feature. If the DNS you set up is valid, SlashPage will issue a certificate.

This process usually takes less than 20 seconds, but it can take longer. Please wait for a moment.

Enter the following information
Host or Alias

Using your DNS hosting provider's redirect or forwarding features
The use of redirects and forwarding can vary from provider to provider. Here are some typical settings
On your DNS settings page, look for the "URL Redirect", "Forwarding", "Web Address Forwarding", or similar option.
Enter the following information
Source or Redirect Address
Setting the redirect type to "301 Permanent Redirect" will ensure that search engines recognize it as the same site.
