DNS

DNS stands for Domain Name System. This is what links a domain name to a website.

Appsemble supports linking custom domain names to an app. The first step is to get a domain name.

Note: Whether or not Appsemble has support for custom domain names, depends on how it is hosted. It is supported on appsemble.app.

Configure CNAME

Create a CNAME record that links @ to the Appsemble URL.

For example, to link your top level domain name to your app on appsemble.app, add the following DNS record. The exact settings screen may vary per registrar.

TypeNameTargetTTL
CNAME@appsemble.appAuto

Note: Not all registrars can handle top level domain name CNAME records. For these domain names, we suggest using Cloudflare. No worries, registration is free.

To link a subdomain, for example my-app, to an app, add the following configuration.

TypeNameTargetTTL
CNAMEmy-appappsemble.appAuto

Configure app

For Appsemble to know which app should be served on the given domain name, it should know which app to serve when it receives a request on this domain name.

In the app settings of your app, enter the domain name in the Domain field and save.

It may take up to a day until a domain name has been linked successfully, although in practice this will only take minutes.
