Custom Domains With Tokeet Websites

So, you have your own domain and want to use it with your Tokeet website? No problem! Tokeet makes this easy by allowing you to use any domain for your custom website. If you don't have a custom domain you may purchase one easily from any domain registrar online. Once you have your domain, you'll need to perform a few simple steps to make it point to your Tokeet website.


Setting the custom domain in Tokeet

  1. First you will have to create a tokeet website using one of the provided free domains. For information on how to create a Tokeet website please see the following article: Creating a website with Website Builder
  2. Navigate to Websites
  3. Click into the Tokeet website to open the website details overlay or use the edit button (3 dots) to select Edit.
  4. Click on the edit icon next to your website domain.
  5. Enter your custom domain into the field marked "Specify a custom domain" and click Save


Configuring DNS to point your domain to Tokeet

Now you must configure the DNS settings of your domain to point to Tokeet.

  1. Login to your domain registrar's website and locate the DNS (Domain Name System) settings for your domain.
  2. Create a new CNAME record pointing to websites.tokeet.com
  3. Create or update your A record to point to 52.44.31.223.  Note, Tokeet will redirect any request to
your-domain.com
  1. If you're using a subdomain you only need to create a CNAME pointing to websites.tokeet.com . You can skip the A record configuration.

This is an example of proper CNAME and A Record configuration

Note:  Wait about an hour for your DNS settings to activate. If your custom domain still isn't taking you to your website, wait another day or two to make sure all the DNS servers have been updated. If it still isn't working, contact your registrar to make sure you entered the DNS settings correctly.


Secure Custom Domains

If you would like for your website to be secure (https:// ) Tokeet must issue you an SSL certificate.  Please contact us through chat or at support@tokeet.com and request the SSL certificate for your custom website.  You will receive an email from Amazon with a request to approve secure certificates for your domain.   Once the certificates are issued, you will need to update your CNAME record one last time.  Tokeet will provide you the CNAME for your secure site.


As always, we're here to help. Please feel free to email support@tokeet.com with any questions.
