Default Domain



Don't create a CNAME from your domain to an Endpoint using a Default Domain.

These Endpoints use an Aptible-provided certificate that's valid for *, so using your own domain will result in a HTTPS error being shown to your users.

If you'd like to use your own domain, set up an Endpoint with a Custom Domain instead.

When you create an Endpoint with a Default Domain, Aptible will provide you with a hostname you can directly send traffic to, with the format

Use Cases

Default Domains are ideal for internal and development apps, but if you need a branded hostname to send customers to, you should use a Custom Domain instead.

SSL / TLS Certificate

For Endpoints that require SSL / TLS Certificates, Aptible will automatically deploy a valid certificate when you use a Default Endpoint.

One Default Endpoint per app

At most one Default Endpoint can be used per app. If you need more than one Endpoint, for an app, you'll need to use Endpoints with a Custom Domain.

Custom Default Domains

If you cannot use the domain, or have concerns about the fact that external Endpoints using the domain are discoverable via the App ID, we can replace * with your own domain. This option is only available for apps hosted on Dedicated Stacks. Contact Aptible Support for more information.
