Linking a custom domain

By default, your SellApp storefront comes with a free subdomain that can be customized, for example: admin.sell.app

However, we completely understand when you want to use your own domain to truly make your storefront your own. That's why we've added the custom domain ability to our platform,

It's completely free to add your custom domain to SellApp, no paid plan required.


Step 1: Buy a custom domain

If you've already purchased or own a domain name, skip ahead to Step 2.

If you don't already have a custom domain, you're going to want to buy one. We strongly recommend Cloudflare as they're easy, affordable, and have a best-in-class DNS system that comes with DDoS protection out of the box.


Step 2: Add your custom domain to SellApp

To set up your custom domain, navigate to your storefront's other settings > Custom Domain and enter the custom domain you'd like your SellApp storefront to live on.

You can specify any domain you'd like:

  1. A root domain such as example.com, bob.com, or varrock.osrs

  2. A subdomain such as www.example.com, me.bob.com, or teleport.varrock.osrs


Step 3: Add the CNAME and TXT record to your custom domain's DNS settings

In your domain's DNS settings, create a CNAME record pointing your (sub)domain to sell-beacon.net These are the values for the record you should add:

  1. CNAME Record

    1. Host/Name:

      • @ — If you'd like to link to your root domain (as mentioned in point 1 above).

      • www, or me, or teleport — If you'd like to link to your subdomain (as mentioned in point 2 above).

    2. Value/Points To:

      • sell-beacon.net

    So you know

    Some DNS providers require a period at the end of the domain that's being pointed to. In which case, you'll want to enter: sell-beacon.net.

  2. TXT Record

    • If your DNS provider is Cloudflare, you don't need to add a TXT record. The domain will be verified in a few moments and you'll be good to go.

    • If your DNS provider is different (i.e. NameCheap, GoDaddy, etc.), then you'll need to add an _acme-challenge TXT record

      • If you are linking a root domain

        • Your host should also be @ as in the CNAME record step

        • With the target/value being _acme-challenge only (nothing appended to it)

      • If you are linking a subdomain

        • Your host should also be www, or me, or teleport as in the CNAME record step

        • With the target/value being _acme-challenge.www.example.com, _acme-challenge.me.bob.com, _acme-challenge.teleport.varrock.osrs (the entire host appended to it)
