Adding a Custom Domain
If you’ve purchased a custom domain from a registrar, you can add it to your PlayCode project!
To add a custom domain:
Open the project in the editor.
Click to Globe icon
Click Add Custom Domain.
Enter your custom domain URL (www.website.com) and then click Add.
Now, go to your domain name registrar’s website and create a CNAME entry, adding app.playcode.io as the target.
Here are some things to remember when adding a custom domain to your PlayCode project:
Visiting the url, http://app.playcode.io directly in your browser will not display your app. It’s not intended to be used directly, only as part of a CNAME.
Most popular domain name registrars provide documentation on how to configure your dns for CNAMES. Here are links to a few of them:
Using an A Record when your domain name registrar requires an IP address:
If you want to use the “bare domain” (for example, website.com instead of www.website.com), you’ll need to create an A Record.
If your registrar requires an A Record to be pointed to an IP address instead of a URL, you can find the IP address by using a service like Ping.eu to ping http: app.playcode.io .
Here are documentation links for how to add an A record with some popular domain name registrars:
