Managing Domains

Domain names are labels that identify networks and the systems attached to them. In hosting, you'll most often see domain names used in website URLs and email addresses.

Adding Domains

Click on Domains in the control panel sidebar.

2

Click the button labeled "+ Add Domain or Subdomain" in the upper-left corner of the content area.

3

In the Domain field, enter the full domain name (eg "domain.com") or subdomain (eg "www.domain.com") name that you want to add.

4

f you want to add more domains or subdomains, click the small button labeled "+ Add Domain" in the bottom-left corner of the form.

Be sure to add all of the subdomains that you plan to use! For example, if you want to serve your site from a "www" subdomain, then be sure to add that as it is not generated automatically.

5

When you are finished adding domains, click the "Save" button.

Free opalstacked.com Subdomains

Every Opalstack hosting account includes a free subdomain that you can use to test the service or even to host your own sites.

The free subdomains use your Opalstack account name as the subdomain of the domain "opalstacked.com". For example, if your account name is "mycompany" then your free subdomain is "mycompany.opalstacked.com".

You cannot create additional opalstacked.com subdomains, like "mycompany2.opalstacked.com - however, you can create multiple levels of subdomains of your free subdomain, like "sub1.mycompany.opalstacked.com".

You cannot delete your free opalstacked.com subdomain.
