Quick Tip: Create and configure hostnames with Umbraco Cloud

I have purchased my domains and would now like to configure my Umbraco Cloud website to be directed to these domains. What is the process for doing this?

Step 1

Login to your Umbraco Cloud dashboard (https://www.s1.umbraco.io) and navigate to the project in question. In the top right click on "Settings" and then in the dropdown menu select "Manage Domains".

Step 2

In the field provided add all of the hostnames for your new website.

Step 3

Login to the control panel of where your domain names are registered - in this example we have used 123-reg although most providers will be similar. Navigate to the correct domain and then choose "Manage DNS (A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV)".

Step 4

You should now set a CNAME record for your Umbraco Cloud given URL (e.g. website.s1.umbraco.io) and an A record for the Umbraco Cloud IP 23.100.15.180.

You should now be able to reach your Umbraco Cloud website via your chosen domain names.
