  1. Setup your DNS

A DNS configuration will be displayed when you save your custom domain. Add the configuration record that appears on the domain settings page to your DNS provider. Typically, it will look like this:

HOST (NAME)POINTS TO (VALUE)TTL
statuscname.instatus.comLeave the default

You can do this on most registrars by doing the following steps:

  • Go to your domain settings page.
  • Manage DNS.
  • Add a record.
  • Choose CNAME record type.
  • Choose the HOST. Typically status, but you can choose any host, and it'll be your subdomain.
  • Points to will be: cname.instatus.com
  • Leave the TTL as the default value

If your domain is using Cloudflare's Nameservers and you plan to use it as a custom domain on your status page, you may need some minor steps to ensure the domain will work correctly. Here are specific instructions for Cloudflare

Congrats! You can now start to use your custom domain 🚀
