Custom Domain Names

Postby Dave » Wed Jan 04, 2017 11:51 am

When you first create a new AllProWebTools account, you are given a subdomain like:

example.MyAllProWebTools.com or example.GreatMockup.com

These are temporary holding place URLs and you are expected to "Go Live" with your own custom domain within 3 months of the account creation.

You have two choices in this regard:

1. Use the free website hosting to host your website:
If you are planning to host your entire website with AllProWebTools, you can build your new site on one of our temporary hosting URLs and then "Go Live" with your own domain name like www.MyWebsite.com. You can "Go Live" by going to your webpage editor (from the main menu choose "Website" and then click on "My WebPages". At the top of this page you will see a link that says "Go Live"

2. Host your main website somewhere else and setup a subdomain for your AllProWebTools account:
Some users will want to keep their main website hosted somewhere other than AllProWebTools and setup a subdomain such as store.MyWebsite.com or apwt.MyWebsite.com. This can be easily setup by editing the DNS records for your website and adding a CNAME that points to apwt.allprowebtools-s2.com.

Some examples would be:

CNAME - apwt.MyWebsite.com points to apwt.allprowebtools-s2.com
CNAME - store.MyWebsite.com points to apwt.allprowebtools-s2.com
