We've recently updated this video to help simplify and explain the steps a little easier, please watch in greater detail in the video below!


First of all, setting up a custom domain is not a mandatory step. You can fully run your DashNex Pages website on the subdomain that we provide.

Secondly, it's very important that you follow this tutorial to the letter, because most issues with custom domain setup are caused by not following the steps outlined below.

IMPORTANT: Changes that you will make to your domain may take up to 24 hours to become active. This is due to DNS propagation. 


OK, ready to integrate? Good.




Step 1: Purchase Domain(from a site like Go Daddy or anywhere you prefer) 

Step 2: Sign up or log in to Cloudflare and add your site

Step 3: Delete all current records (exception could be your MX records for a custom email) 

Step 4:  Point your domain to DashNex Pages

  1. Select 'CNAME' from the dropdown menu on the left

  2. Type @ in the name field.

  3. Type dashnexpages.net in the 'Domain name' field

  4. Click the 'Add Record' button on the right.

Next, add the 2nd CNAME record that points 'www' to dashnexpages.net. 

  1. Select 'CNAME' from the dropdown menu on the left

  2. Type www in the name field.

  3. Type dashnexpages.net in the 'Domain name' field

  4. Click 'Add Record' button on the right

Step 4: Change Settings for Cloudflare 

On your domain dashboard inside of the CloudFlare, click on the 'Crypto' icon: Set the SSL to FULL and click save changes.

Step 5: Go to DashNexpages and under subdomain settings, go to the custom domain tab and add your custom domain you just set up on cloudflare and click validate
Step 6: Select home and 404 page and click save!

Common trouble shooting issue: If  DNS or SSL do not turn green, please go back and make sure that the SSL under the crypto tab on Cloudflare is set to FULL, and then go back and validate again.
