Instead of being directed to preview.adpiler.com, your preview page URL can be something much more brandable, like https://preview.yourcompany.com. You will need CNAME Records to all do this. It might be a bit tricky at first sight, but it is easier then you think.

Step 1: Add CNAME record to your DNS

You’ll need to create a CNAME record with your DNS provider or wherever your domain is managed to point at our hosts. You can follow the steps below or contact your hosting provider’s support team directly.

Sign in to your domain hosting service
Navigate to your DNS management page
Find the CNAME record settings
Create a new CNAME record:
Enter a value for your sub-domain in the host field (For example, you’d enter “preview” if you want to set up “preview.yourcompany.com”)
Choose for “CNAME” in the Type field
Type ‘preview.adpiler.com’ in the Value field
Save the changes to your DNS records

Step 2: Tell Adpiler to use your subdomain

Changes in your DNS-records can take up to 24 hours. Make sure your new CNAME record (as set in Step 1) is active before you continue with this step.

Log in into Adpiler and go to White label**s** in the main menu. This is only available for owners and admins. In the column ‘Subdomain’ click on the domain you would like to change and set your subdomain you just created in your DNS-records (For example: https://preview.yourcompany.com).



If all is setup correctly, all is working right away. Please check by clicking on a link to a preview page in your account.

HTTPS / SSL

Adpiler supports HTTPS for your custom domain. It might take up to a few hours to generate the SSL certificate for the new domain.

When using HTTPS, make sure all your ads don’t have any requests to http-servers. This is no issue with images, but HTML5-ads often have requests to external servers for including Javascripts or other files. Make sure those external files are all on https-locations.
