1.29. How to change Web GIS domain

Note

This functionality is available only to nextgis.com Premium users.

After you created a Web GIS you get a domain at nextgis.com, for example mywebgis.nextgis.com. Afterwards, you can change it to a subdomain under a domain of your organization, for example gis.mycompany.com where mycompany.com is the domain of your organization.

Note

You can’t use your organization domain itself (mycompany.com) as Web GIS domain. It is impossible to add CNAME record in the DNS zone root with most of the providers.

Follow these steps. Typically this done by system administrator of your company who has access to DNS records.

Step 1. Add DNS record 1 to get HTTPS certificates

_acme-challenge.gis.example.com. CNAME _acme-challenge.nimbo.nextgis.net.

change gis.example.com to the needed domain under the domain of your organization, change example.nextgis.com to your Web GIS address at *.nextgis.com

Check 1

Your system administrator needs to check that changes took effect. Use Dig. Enter: _acme-challenge.gis.example.com. Give some time for DNS changes to take an effect.

Expected answer: CNAME (TTL and TARGET).

Step 2. Внести в DNS Запись 2 для перенаправления запросов к Веб ГИС

gis.example.com. CNAME example.nextgis.com.

change gis.example.com to the needed domain under the domain of your organization, change example.nextgis.com to your Web GIS address at *.nextgis.com

Check 2

Your system administrator needs to check that changes took effect. Use Dig. Enter: gis.example.com. Give some time for DNS changes to take an effect.

Expected answer: CNAME (TTL and TARGET).

When all changes are made and confirmed to take effect, let us know at support@nextgis.com to finalize, include information on domain chosen for Web GIS of your organization.
