Add Your First Domain

With RunCloud, you don’t need to use your own domain when creating a web application. You can use RunCloud free domain for creating and testing a web application quickly. And once you are ready, you can add your own domain to your web application.

There are three required steps to add your domain to your web application in RunCloud.

First, register a domain. You can register and purchase a domain from a domain registrar, for example NameCheap and Godaddy.

Second, add your domain to RunCloud. You can add your domain, both www and non-www version, to the Domain Name menu under your Web Application in RunCloud.

Third, configure DNS records. You can configure DNS records of your domain from a DNS management service, for example CloudFlare, DNSMadeEasy, DigitalOcean, etc.

 

DNS Propagation Checker

After configuring DNS records, it will take time from minutes to 24-48 hours for the DNS records to be fully propagated across the internet.

If you want to check the status of DNS propagation of your domain, you can use any DNS propagation checker service, for example:

Once your DNS records have been propagated successfully, your website will be officially live using your domain.

 

Change Your WordPress Address

For WordPress website, after your DNS records has been propagated successfully, you can change your WordPress Address from RunCloud free domain to your own domain, using General Settings menu under your Web Application in RunCloud.

That’s it! Your WordPress website is now live with your domain.

After adding your first domain, you can continue now by securing your website with HTTPS using our one-click installation of free SSL/TLS by Let's Encrypt.
