Enhancing the professionalism of your rental business's online presence can be as simple as utilizing a custom domain for your Fullup website.

While Fullup provides a default URL as part of your subscription, the option to use a custom domain offers a personalized touch that aligns with your brand identity. This guide explains how to purchase and point a custom domain to your Fullup website, ensuring a seamless and branded online experience for your customers.

Choosing and Setting Up a Custom Domain

  • Initial Setup: During the onboarding process for your Fullup subscription, you will choose a name that becomes your default URL. If this satisfies your needs, no further action is required. However, many choose to enhance their site with a custom domain for a more branded experience.

  • Purchasing a Domain: To use a custom domain, you will need to purchase the domain from a domain registrar of your choice.

Configuring DNS Settings

  • Log into Your Admin Account: Start by signing into your Fullup admin account.

  • Navigate to Custom Domain Settings: Click the "Custom domain" setting.

  • DNS Configuration: After acquiring your custom domain, the next step involves configuring a DNS record. Fullup simplifies this process by providing you with a single CNAME record during setup.

    • Host: The domain you’ve chosen.

    • Value: A Fullup-specific domain provided during the setup.

  • DNS Providers: This configuration is compatible with any DNS provider, including GoDaddy, Namecheap, AWS Route 53, etc. Simply enter the provided CNAME record into your DNS provider’s settings.

SSL and Routing

  • SSL Certification: Fullup automatically handles SSL certification for your custom domain, ensuring your website maintains a secure connection for all users.

  • Automatic Routing: Once the CNAME is added, Fullup manages all routing requirements. There's no need for additional configuration on your part.

Managing Your Fullup Domain Settings

  • Disabling the Default URL: After verifying that your custom domain correctly directs traffic to your Fullup website, you might choose to disable the default URL to streamline traffic to your new domain.

  • Future Modifications: Changing your custom domain or reverting to the default URL is straightforward. Fullup’s platform allows for easy adjustments to your domain settings at any time.

Adopting a custom domain for your Fullup website not only reinforces your brand but also enhances the credibility and recognition of your rental business online. Fullup's streamlined domain integration process ensures that the transition to a custom domain is straightforward and secure.
