Aptible Deploy

Custom Domain

Using a Custom Domain with an Endpoint, you can send traffic from your own domain to your Apps running on Aptible Deploy.

Endpoint Hostname

When you set up an Endpoint using a Custom Domain, Aptible Deploy will provide you with an Endpoint Hostname of the form elb-XXX.aptible.in.

You should not send traffic directly to the Endpoint Hostname. Instead, to finish setting up your Endpoint, create a CNAME from your own domain to the Endpoint Hostname.

📘

Tip

The following things are not Endpoint Hostnames:

  • app.your-domain.io: this is your Custom Domain.
  • app-123.on-aptible.com: this is a Default Domain.

In constrast, this is is an Endpoint Hostname:

  • elb-foobar-123.aptible.in

️ Warning

Do not create a DNS A record mapping directly to the IP addresses for an Aptible Deploy Endpoint, or use the Endpoint IP addresses directly: those IP addresses change periodically, so your records and configuration would eventually go stale.

️ Warning

You can't create a CNAME for a domain apex (i.e. you can create a CNAME from app.foo.com, but you can't create one from foo.com).

If you'd like to point your domain apex at an Aptible Deploy Endpoint, review the instructions here: How do I use my domain apex with Aptible Deploy?.

SSL / TLS Certificate

For Endpoints that require SSL / TLS Certificates, you have two options:

  • Bring your own Custom Certificate: in this case, you're responsible for making sure the certificate you use is valid for the domain name you're using.
  • Use Managed TLS: in this case, you'll have to provide Aptible Deploy with the domain name you plan to use, and Aptible Deploy will take care of certificate provisioning and renewal for you.
