Cloud users have a couple different options for their domain/location. We’ll outline your options below along with information on how you can have your custom domain option setup for you.
The default cloud location for your affiliate program will use your customer ID. The URL to your affiliate program will look something like this:
In the above example, 123 is your customer number.
Rather than using the default cloud location shown above, you can use your own personal subdomain like this:
Using this option, you can choose the subdomain name you’d like to use. To have your account converted from the stock location to the subdomain of your choosing, just contact our support department. Let them know your current iDevAffiliate Cloud location or customer ID number and the name you’d like to use. They will set this up for you.
Along with this setup comes the use of our built-in wildcard SSL certificate (https) so you don’t have to worry about providing your own SSL cert.
If you’d prefer to use your own subdomain or even your own top-level-domain, we can do that too!
Using this option, you will need to provide us with your own SSL certificate for use with your cloud location.
For those not wanting to deal with a SSL cert or pointing a domain, option 1 (above) might be something to consider as it offers a personalized subdomain and use of our built-in wildcard SSL certificate.
Step 1: Point Your Domain
- Point your subdomain or top level domain (whichever you choose), to our server IP: 126.96.36.199 – You’ll want to create an A record in your DNS settings. If you need help pointing your domain, please contact your hosting provider and/or server admin.
- Contact our support department and let them know the domain you have pointed, along with a link to your iDevAffiliate Cloud location or customer ID number.
Step 2: Setup Your SSL Certificate
Contact our support department with the following information.
- iDevAffiliate Cloud location or customer ID number.
- Two-Letter Country Code
- Company Name
- Company Division (use N/A if none)
- Email Address
We will create a CSR for you to use for creating your CRT. Once created, you will send us back the CRT. We’ll install it and you’re all set.
If you need a suggestion for a SSL certificate, GoDaddy usually has them for around $50 and you can usually find coupon codes out there to lessen the cost.
