You can choose to personalize Droplr with a custom domain for your drop links instead of using our own short url (d.pr). For example:
Here’s how to set it up.
First Level (Root domain, e.g. mydomain.com):
custom.droplr.comusing CNAME Flattening or ALIAS techniques.
Second Level or further (e.g. drops.mywebsite.com)
Create your free account on CloudFlare.com and follow our guide to properly configure your custom domain with HTTPS in Droplr.
2. Enable “Full” SSL support in Crypto settings.
3. Create Page Rule that will automatically redirect non-secure HTTP traffic to HTTPS for your custom domain.
When using a custom domain, we allow you to set a root redirect that defines where someone will be forwarded if they visit the root of your custom domain (e.g. mydomain.com). To configure this, do the following:
Nope, just the A-record or CNAME record depending on levels in your domain.
After re-configuring your domain, you must wait up to 72 hours for the changes to take effect. When you visit the subdomain or domain, you should see a Droplr error page — this means that the domain is correctly pointing to Droplr, but that your account hasn’t been configured to use it yet.
They will automatically be redirected to Droplr’s homepage unless you have a root redirect set up.
Unless you are currently subscribed to a plan with premium support, we’re unable to support many of the issues that crop up, so it’s best if you ask a friend who has done this before.
No, currently we only support 1 custom domain per account. However, if you’re on a team account, your entire team will share the same custom domain.
All links that you’ve used with your previous custom domain will cease to work. However, the short link code remains the same, so you can simply update those links wherever you’ve posted them to reflect your new custom domain and they will resume working. Additionally, all links are always available by using “d.pr” whether the custom domain option is turned on or not.
