Setting up your turnkey storefronts domain¶
To set up and configure your storefront's domain name, proceed to do the following:
Log in to our Client Area
Navigate to the "Resellers Area" link within the headers Menu.
Navigate to the "Configuration" Tab within the turnkey reseller control center.
Set your sub-domain within the "Domain" field. This will assign the sub-domain to your storefront.
Now you will have to set up the DNS for the sub-domain to correctly load from our servers, to do this point the sub-domain you used in Step 4 to "clients.asurahosting.com" using a CName DNS record. You can also make use of an "A" record, but we recommend setting a CName record so if we were to change IP addresses later on, your domain will remain unaffected.
Once you have pointed your storefronts sub-domain to our servers with a CName record, simply contact us to get the sub-domain whitelisted. Once whitelisted, your domain will be fully functional.
Why use a sub-domain?¶
We always recommend using a sub-domain for your storefront as this will allow you to create your own website on your root domain.
The recommended setup is as follows:
- Storefront/Client area: store.example.com
- Your own website: example.com or www.example.com
