Generation 1
Custom Domains

You can easily map a custom domain to a Convox application by creating a CNAME to your load balancer hostname.

Balancer Hostname

You can find the load balancer hostname(s) for your application using convox services:

$ convox services
SERVICE  DOMAIN                                                  PORTS
web  80

Configuring DNS

Create an appropriate DNS entry to map your desired custom domain to your Convox app. In the example above one might create the following DNS entry:

TTL 60

To set up DNS for a root domain you should use the ALIAS type with Route 53 or the equivalent with your DNS provider.
