Using Cloudflare

To ensure reliable and fast operation of custom domains, we use Cloudflare. Cloudflare provides a number of benefits such as improved security, caching, and faster page loading times.

Creating a domain and installing Name Servers

After you have added a new personal domain in your personal account, you will receive two Name Servers for example:

Install Name Servers for your domain: Log into your domain registrar's control panel and find the Name Servers or DNS management section. Then replace the current Name Servers with the ones provided by Cloudflare.

Wait for the changes to complete: Changes to Name Servers typically take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Once the changes are complete, your domain will be configured to run through Cloudflare.

This process will allow your custom domain to leverage Cloudflare's security and performance enhancements, ensuring your URL shortening service runs smoothly and quickly.

Instructions for parking a subdomain using Cloudflare

Why use Cloudflare?

Cloudflare provides powerful tools to manage your DNS records, ensuring your subdomain runs reliably and quickly. In addition, Cloudflare offers additional security features and faster content loading.

Subdomain parking

  1. Log into your Cloudflare account: Register with Cloudflare if you don't already have an account and log in.

  2. Add your domain: Go to the "Add Site" section and enter the main domain to which you want to add a parking subdomain.

  3. Add a subdomain for parking: In the "DNS" section, add a new entry for your subdomain. Specify the record type (typically "CNAME"), subdomain name, and target address.

  4. Set up a Cloudflare proxy service (optional): If you want to use additional Cloudflare features such as DDoS protection and faster content loading, set up a Cloudflare proxy service for your subdomain.

  5. Confirm changes: Save your changes to DNS records.

  6. Test your subdomain: Wait for the DNS records update process to complete (usually takes a few hours) and test the functionality of your subdomain.

This process will ensure stable and fast operation of your subdomain using Cloudflare functionality.

If you're not using Cloudflare

In case you want to park a subdomain, but you do not use Cloudflare, you need to park your subdomain to our server IP. You will also need to issue an SSL certificate for your subdomain.

The method for updating DNS depends on your domain registrar. You can check this with your provider.

In general the process looks something like this:

  1. Log in to your domain registrar's website.
  2. Select the domain you want to change.
  3. Find the Manage DNS Records section. The name of this section varies by vendor, but is usually something like "DNS Configuration", "DNS Records" or "Advanced DNS".
  4. Edit the existing CNAME record for this subdomain to point to When entering a subdomain,**enter only the part up to the first dot ** . For example, for simply enter "to".
CNAME your chosen subdomain
