Custom Domain feature is only available to Premium plans.

As you know, Raklet is working with permalinks. When you want to reach your social website, you can just go to raklet.com/yourpermalink. Or you can use your permalink as a subdomain like yourpermalink.raklet.com. If you have your own custom domain, you can use it instead of these default addresses.

Raklet does not provide nameservers. You must use the default nameservers provided by your domain name provider.

Correctly setting up your domain can be tricky, and this is further complicated by the fact that domain setup process is different from one domain registrar to another. We have provided an overview of the process and key instructions – if you need any assistance with it, you should contact your domain name registrar.

1. Choose and register your domain name

Choose a domain name registrar. There are many companies that offer this service.  Make sure that your selected domain name registrar offers online self-service for DNS management. This will give you direct control over the DNS records for your domain, and the ability to create and modify A, CNAME, and SPF records as needed. (Most registrars offer this as part of the basic domain registration, but there are still a few that do not.)

2. Set up your custom domain

Setting it up yourself

If you are familiar with creating DNS records, this step should be easy for you. Just add a CNAME record for raklet-prod-v3.azurewebsites.net.

Each domain name provider's control panel is unique to its own. So you should know how to add a DNS record on your domain name provider's website. You can find wiki pages of some domain name providers that explaining how to add a CNAME record below:

Setting up with your domain name provider's assistance

Contact your domain name provider directly and ask for their assistance with the setup.

Don't know who your domain name provider is? Click here then enter your domain name in the field and click the Search button. Within the search results – or further down in the raw details – look for the name of your domain name provider in the Registrar field.

Use the following email template – just copy and paste it, and adjust as required.

Please assist me with my domain name setup <MYDOMAIN.COM>
by adding the following DNS record to it:
 
- CNAME
Name: <MYPERMALINK>
Value: raklet-prod-v3.azurewebsites.net

Within your email, replace all occurrences of <MYDOMAIN.COM> with your custom domain and <MYPERMALINK> with your Raklet permalink. With some domain registrars, the name is not required.

3. Add your custom domain to your Raklet account

1. Go to your email address at the lower left corner and click Settings.

2. In General section, just type your custom domain and click Save button.

And that's it! If everything is ok, your custom domain registration will be completed in next 24 hours.
