SPP runs on our servers and we take care of setup, updates, server security and backups for you.
By default you and your clients can access the application from
https://username.spp.io. To use your own domain name you’ll need to configure any subdomain (typically
clients.yoursite.com) to show pages from our server.
If you’re using Cloudflare:
- Sign in to your Cloudflare account
- From the dropdown menu on the top left, select your domain
- Select the DNS settings tab
- Add a new DNS record with these settings:
- Record type: CNAME
- Automatic TTL
If your hosting has cPanel:
- Sign in to your hosting account’s control panel
- Make sure the subdomain
clients.yoursite.comdoes not exist yet, otherwise delete it or choose a different subdomain
- Open the DNS zone editor
- Add a new CNAME record with these settings:
- Save your changes
Test and activate your custom domain
Before proceeding with the setup you can check if your CNAME is correct here (enter
clients.yoursite.com as the domain to test). Note that your changes may take some time to fully propagate, especially if you’re modifying existing DNS records instead of setting up a fresh subdomain.
Once you’ve confirmed the CNAME record is correct go to SPP Settings > General and update the Custom domain setting.
Now you and your clients can access the application from
clients.yoursite.com while still using
yoursite.com for your main website.
Your default domain
username.spp.io will always have SSL enabled.
Users on the Basic and Pro plans can get a free SSL certificate for their custom domains in Settings > General.
Tip: both your default domain and custom domain can be used interchangeably:
If you prefer only one variation to be used, please contact us.
Custom email domain
By default your clients will receive email notifications from
firstname.lastname@example.org. This is because SPP needs to be able to capture client replies and post them as project messages in your dashboard.
However, if you’re on the PRO plan we can also configure a custom sender domain for your account. Contact us with the domain you’d like to use and we’ll send you the instructions.
