Add Custom Domain
You can link your custom domain to your social sharing link with Orda so customers can easily find your stores on a map and order from you by mobile or web.
Setting up your custom domain also allows you to activate Apple Pay in your web ordering.
In the example of the end result below, the custom domain www.eatblended.com links to their social sharing page:
Set up your custom domain on Orda
To make sure we know what is your custom domain you need to go through this process:
Log in to getorda.com
From the Orda Dashboard select Marketplace
Select the Web Ordering app.
On the Domain tab select Custom Domain field and update the input field to something like "www.mydomain.com"
Once ready click on the "Activate & Save" button
Set up your custom domain on your Domain host (Google Domains, Go Daddy or other)
Let's add a CNAME record to your domain host.
Open a browser tab or window and sign in to your host’s website.
If you're not familiar with CNAME records, contact your domain host, who can help you. To add the CNAME record to your domain host, follow the steps below. See your domain host’s documentation for more specific instructions.
Go to your domain’s DNS records
Add a record to your DNS settings, selecting CNAME as the record type
Write www in Label/Host field
Copy "cname.orda.me" to the contents of the Destination/Target
Leave Time To Live (TTL) as default (3600 or 1 hour)
Save your record
Here is an example (from Google Domains):
Redirect naked domain to www (or any other subdomain)
Redirecting the naked domain helps the users land on the right page. For example, if you host your website on https://www.xyz.com and the user tries to visit https://xyz.com, the User finds nothing. https://xyz.com & https://www.xyz.com are not the same. To make sure your Domain Provider redirects your visitors to your subdomain follow these instructions:
Log in and go to the DNS Management section of your domain (GoDaddy, Google Domains or any other provider)
Find out the “Forwarding” section at the bottom of the page and click on the “Add” button against DOMAIN.
Under “Forward To” Choose your protocol (HTTPS if you have SSL, HTTP otherwise) and enter www.xyz.com as the URL.
Leave the “Forward Type” as Permanent (301) and save the settings.
