A domain is the URL or website address where your visitor go to find your website. You manage your domain settings on the Domains page in your Nimbu Settings area in the admin.
Your primary domain is the domain that's displayed when people' visit your site. You can have multiple domains linked to a single Nimbu project, but only one primary domain. You can choose to redirect all traffic to this primary domain.
Connecting your third-party domain to Nimbu points your domain name at your Nimbu website. This means that when someone enters your custom URL into their web browser, it takes them to your website. You still use the third-party domain provider to manage your domain settings, pay for your domain, and renew it.
First, you need to add your custom domain to your Nimbu website:
If you're using a third party DNS hosting provider, then you need to edit the following DNS settings:
For a top-level-domain DNS-record (i.e.
example.com), use 2 A-records:
example.com. 3600 IN A 126.96.36.199
example.com. 3600 IN A 188.8.131.52
For all subdomains (i.e.
www.example.com), use a CNAME-record:
www.example.com. 3600 IN CNAME proxy.nimbu.io
