Understand custom domain

Understand custom domain in portal

The domain is the string that is entered into the address bar and helps identify a source on the internet. An example of domain name is https://www.google.com. By default the portal is hosted on the Zoho Creator's domain. The  portal will be allocated the domain name will be something similar to https://applicationname.zohocreatorportal.com. However, the admin can also host the portal on their own domain. This will enable the portal to accessible from the organization's own website instead of Zoho creator's.

Let's assume an organization called Zylker uses the Zoho Creator portal. Zylker has a domain, www.zylker.com, and wants the portal to be available on its own domain instead of the default domain. Zylker can achieve this by using the custom domain feature.

In order to use a custom domain, the domain has to be verified. This is to ensure the linking of the creator portal and the domain. The verification of the domain also helps authenticating whether the admin is the real owner of the domain. The verification can be done in three different ways: By adding CNAME, By adding TXT, and By adding file.
