You can setup plug&paid to use your domain for hosted checkout pages (link CTAs), download links, subscription and card management pages and every page that your customers may get to see.
Step 1: Add a CNAME record
In order to make this work, you need to own a domain and have access to its name servers. Usually the name server is in the same place where you bought the domain from. There, you need to be adding a CNAME record (which is just a fancy name for "alias") to point your domain or subdomain to:
See these guides on how to configure a CNAME with the most popular domain services:
- Adding a CNAME record on GoDaddy
- Adding a CNAME record on Namecheap
- Adding a CNAME record on Cloudflare
- Adding a CNAME record on G Suite
If your domain service provider is not listed above, feel free to search Google for "how to setup CNAME on <provider-name>" or reach out to our support team in case you need further assistance.
Step 2: Configure the Custom Domain addon
Once you did this, wait a few minutes and go to your plug&paid Addons page to add your custom domain by clicking "Activate" on the Custom Domain addon box:
You only need to enter two pieces of information:
- your domain (the same one that you configured the CNAME for)
- a redirect URL (in case somebody accesses a page that does not exist on this domain)
Once you click "Save Custom Domain", our system will check if your domain really points to merchant.plugnpaid.com. If saving is successful, then your custom domain should work. Just go to the details page of any of your plugs and see that your domain is used in the links for your plugs. Click it to verify that it really works.
plug&paid automatically generates and renews SSL certificates for your domain, so your customers can enjoy secure shopping over HTTPS.
