Nearest! can either be operated as a subdomain (i.e. locations.brand.com) or as a root domain (i.e. locator.io). All you have to do is add or customize a CNAME or A record in your DNS server and enter your custom domain.
subdomain IN A 18.104.22.168 ; IPv4 address for subdomain.example.comsubdomain IN AAAA 2a01:4f8:171:6df::2 ; IPv6 address for subdomain.example.com
@ IN A 22.214.171.124 ; IPv4 address for example.com@ IN AAAA 2a01:4f8:171:6df::2 ; IPv6 address for example.comwww IN A 126.96.36.199 ; IPv4 address for www.example.comwww IN AAAA 2a01:4f8:171:6df::2 ; IPv6 address for www.example.com
subdomain IN CNAME finder.nearest.place. ; record for subdomain.example.com
After adding your DNS records got to Interface > Web-app > Domain and enter your custom domain. We will check your DNS settings, register SSL and activate your domain to our server.
As mentioned above, it is highly recommended to use a custom domain with Nearest!. Otherwise the following unwanted scenarios will happen and harm the user experience:
Unwanted ranking of
your-nearest-id.nearest.place in the search engine results with your keywords
User will be asked from the browser, to share its location with
your-nearest-id.nearest.place which can be confusing when implemented into your existing website / domain.
