Custom Domains

You can easily map a custom domain to a Convox application by creating a CNAME to your load balancer hostname.

Balancer Hostname

You can find the load balancer hostname(s) for your application using convox apps info:

$ convox apps info 
Name       docs
Status     running
Release    RHUFNNNVEAP
Processes  web  
Endpoints  docs-web-R72RMTP-326048479.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com:80 (web)

Configuring DNS

Create an appropriate DNS entry to map your desired custom domain to your Convox app. In the example above one might create the following DNS entry:

Name docs.convox.com
Type CNAME
Value docs-web-R72RMTP-326048479.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com
TTL 60

 

To set up DNS for a root domain you should use the ALIAS type with Route 53 or the equivalent with your DNS provider.
