How to connect a custom domain to your Uvodo store?
Uvodo allows you to either connect your custom domain or change your Uvodo store URL (.uvo.do connected store URL).
You can build your store's online presence with a distinctive domain, such as yourstore.com, instead of yourstore.uvo.do.
By connecting a custom domain, you can create a memorable online presence and make it easy for buyers to locate your store online.
Connect custom domain to your Uvodo store
When you purchase a domain, you acquire a root domain, for example,
yourstore.com. Additionally, you have the option to create subdomains like
yourstore.com serving as the root domain and
shop acting as the subdomain. Before you can add a subdomain, it is necessary to first obtain a root domain.
To connect a custom domain to your Uvodo store, you need to add a new CNAME record for the domain you decided on to your DNS provider and point it at the domain "yourstore.uvo.do"
On Uvodo's admin panel, follow these steps:
Log in to your Uvodo admin panel and navigate to the Settings page.
From the left-hand menu, select Domain
Click on the Connect button under the Custom domain section.
Here, write down your domain and hit the Save button.
On your DNS provider:
Identify your DNS provider and access its settings.
Add a CNAME record where your DNS provider is located.
Configure the CNAME record to point to "yourstore.uvo.do".
Additionally, create another CNAME record specifically for the "www" subdomain.
Configure this new CNAME record to point to the desired domain for your store, e.g., "yourstore.com"
By following these steps, you will successfully add your custom domain to your online store.
It's an example of DNS setup through Cloudflare. This is how your DNS setup should look like:
Regarding IP addresses, it's important to note that we do not provide support for A records that rely on our IP address. The reason behind this is that we cannot guarantee the stability of our IP address, and any changes to it could potentially disrupt your domain forwarding unexpectedly.
Regarding nameservers, it's important to understand their role when working with your custom domain provider. It is recommended to use the default nameservers provided by your custom domain provider for hosting your domain. By doing so, your domain will be hosted by them while we handle the hosting of your store.
