Setting Up DNS (Domain Name)

Ryan Rich -

How do I setup DNS to point to my Datica environment?

The Platform environments are designed to have CNAMES or ALIAS records pointed at them. We create a public hostname for the environment that functions as the target of your DNS entries. You will receive your public hostname as part of your on-boarding process after we provision your environment. Datica Public Hostname:

CNAME Records

Use CNAMES for pointing specific subdomains at the Datica public hostname. CNAME Example: CNAME

ALIAS Records

Use ALIAS records for pointing the bare domain at the Datica public hostname. ALIAS Example: ALIAS

Wildcard Redirect

If you wish to redirect non-matched DNS traffic to your Datica public hostname, you can create a wildcard CNAME record with your DNS provider. * CNAME
