Subdomain Setup

Post by Dave »

It is recommended only to use the temporary domains: greatmockup.com and myallprowebtools.com when first setting up your account.

We highly recommend that you create a subdomain on your own website domain for hosting your AllProWebTools CRM. So instead of using: mycompany.greatmockup.com we recommend using your actual domain name (ie. example.com) like this: apwt.example.com

Setting this up is quite simple. Just login to your domain host (usually godaddy or wherever you bought your website name from) and
create a new DNS entry of CNAME with the value of apwt that points to: apwt.allprowebtools-s2.com
Here is a link to the official instructions on how to do this with godaddy: link

Then just contact AllProWebTools support and let them know that you have updated your DNS. That is all!

Settings that are affected by domain or subdomain changes include:
  • user's login URL will change
  • backlinks on the Internet to the old URL will go to a 404 page (or need a 301 redirect)
  • phone.com listener URLs will need to be updated
  • a new DNS entry will need to be created
  • a new SSL certificate will need to be issued
  • hosting adjustments need to be made on the server
