Using a custom domain
Dropmark supports custom domain names on our Team and Solo plans.
Here’s how to set it up:
- Using your domain registrar, point your domain’s CNAME to
secure.dropmark.com(general instructions for specific domain providers). If you do not already own a domain, you can buy one from a company like namecheap.com or easydns.com.
- Once your domain changes have propagated (may take up to 24-48 hours), log into Dropmark. In your Account page (for Teams, visit your Team Settings page instead), click “Use a custom domain name” underneath the username field.
- Enter your custom domain name and click Save.
You should now be able to access your Dropmarks from your domain name.
Dropmark uses HTTPS encryption as an added layer of security. For custom domains, Dropmark will automatically acquire and renew SSL certificates on your behalf. Initial activation may take a few minutes, and requests will be served over regular HTTP during this setup phase. Once the SSL certificate is issued, Dropmark will seamlessly upgrade your requests to HTTPS.
Some domain providers do not allow CNAMEs at the root level (aka “naked”, “bare” or “apex” domains), in this case, we recommend using a subdomain like
www (you can redirect your root domain using the free service wwwizer).
If you prefer to use a root domain, here are some providers who support root-level CNAMEs.
