Step 1: Configure your domain

To add a new CNAME Record for your domain, use the DNS panel of your domain registrar. 

There, enter the subdomain you wish to use as the Name. For example, if you want to use then enter ‘billing’ as the name. 

Then enter as the corresponding Value to your CNAME (some DNS interfaces may label it as Host Name, Fully-Qualified Domain or Data).

Once you have saved the CNAME record, please write to and inform us about the custom domain configuration; we will then make the necessary updates from our end to implement it.

Step 2: Configure Hiveage

2. Scroll down to the  Custom Domain field and enter your custom domain (e.g. and hit the Save button at the top of the window.

Save button

3. Upon saving the preferences you will see the  Verify Domain button next to the Custom Domain field. If your domain name is forwarded properly, you will see a green tick in the form field. If you see a red exclamation mark, it means that your domain is not forwarded properly and you should try again in a few hours (new domains and subdomains may take up to 72 hours to propagate correctly.)

Verify Domain button

That’s it! Your Hiveage account should now be accessible at your custom domain.
