Binding a custom domain name to your DEAR B2B portal


You can have your B2B portal on a custom domain name rather than the default DEAR portal address. 

To bind your Custom Domain Name to your DEAR Portal  you will need to create a CNAME entry in your domain hosting DNS service that points to your B2B Portal permanent address (<your_portal_name>.dearportal.com).


Each domain registrar has a different way of doing this — you may need to check how to do it with your domain hosting provider. 


Prerequisites:

  • Set up your DEAR B2B portal (required)
  • Have a custom domain name ready (required)


To bind a custom domain to a DEAR B2B portal:

  1. Log into your domain registrar account. 
  2. Create a CNAME record. If you have trouble, the registrar's knowledge base or support team will be able to provide you specific information.
  3. Use the following settings:
    • Alias — the domain you want your store to be on (e.g. mydomain.com or xxxxx.mydomain.com)
    • Host / Points to — your B2B Portal permanent address (e.g. myshop.dearportal.com)
    • TTL — how long the server should cache the information, measured in seconds (e.g. 3600)
