How to add a Custom Domain

On the admin dashboard, head over to SETTINGS, at the bottom of the setting page you'll find Domains section, press "Add Domain" button and enter your custom domain address.


Once the domain has been added, you will be given an ALIAS/CNAME which you need to add to your DNS Manager of the domain registrar you have purchased your domain from.

The process is pretty straightforward.

Hope you like the new feature.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Hello @scottrifkin

Regardless of your Domain Registrar, you should be able to point to the given CNAME with or without www and even having both of them at the same time.

Usually you should be able to first create a "www" CNAME to your main domain and then have a @ or * to your domain itself again. That would make it work with and without WWW in your domain.

I have explained it in more details in GoNevis Community forum at

The best video I could find for you would be is this YouTube video that explains setting the domain to Heroku or OpenShift (we're using Heroku for our server infrastructure at the moment.)

Worth noting, it would be pretty easier to use CloudFlare DNS which gives you DNS management and caching + free SSL for your custom domain.

Please do let me know if you need more help, I will try my best to assist in your making it work.

I can't get this to work. I am using Google Domains. Using a CNAME with a @ or * doesn't work on Google Domains so it would mean it only works with www. instead. Is there anything I can do? Is there an A-Record I can use instead?
