Setting up a custom domain

  • Updated

Follow this guide to setup your own domain such as "www.example.com" or "campaign.example.co".

To connect a custom domain with your existing Umso website, follow these steps:

You need to do two mandatory setups:
1 - Setup with your DNS provider
2 - Setup on your site settings on Umso

Setup with DNS provider

You can choose to set up just a root domain, a subdomain or both. In case A you setup your ROOT DOMAIN e.g. example.com and case B you set up a SUBDOMAIN e.g. new.example.com.

Set up a domain (Case A)

A: To setup your root domain. You need to set up two type A Records with your DNS provider (usually where you bought your domain):

with and the IP: 99.83.181.15

with www and the IP: 99.83.181.15

Set up a subdomain (Case B)

B: To setup a subdomain you will need to set up one single type A Record with your DNS provider:

with NAME-OF-YOUR-SUBDOMAIN and the IP: 99.83.181.15

After you've set these records correct please remove all records you don't need and could be in conflict with the shown ones and set up the following steps on Umso (see below).

 

Setup on Umso (Site settings dashboard)

  1. Visit your site dashboard by clicking on your site here.
  2. Then click on the "Domain" settings box
  3. Enter your domain into the "Custom Domain" field
  4. Click on "Update Domain" to save your settings

Your domain is now associated with your site and it's time to create the DNS settings with your DNS provider. You'll see the "DNS Settings" just below the previous form. It should look like this:

 

Now, click on "View Settings" next to each domain (both the www and the non-www version). A popup will appear, outlining the next steps:

First A record for non-www version:

Second A record for www version:

Once you have completed the steps in the popup for all domains, please wait for at least 15 minutes before contacting support. DNS records can take some time to propagate.

When you are done with your setup, your dashboard will look something like this:
