White-Label: Custom Domains

By default, AdGlare serves content using the following URL:
  • yourname.engine.aglare.net
We offer you to white-label this ad serving domain by adding a CNAME DNS record to your domain, allowing you to serve the ads from your own subdomain. There is NO additional charge - using your custom domains is a free service. This article explains how to set up these DNS records.

Ps: Never heard of DNS records? Ask one of the tech guys within your company for assistance.


What can be white-labeled?

The following locations and services can be white-labeled:
A
Ad Serving Engines. Ads are requested from this domain. Defaults to yourname.engine.adglare.net.
B
External Reports. Pages where anyone can view campaign reports. Password-less, but protected by obscurity.


Ad Serving Engines

Host / Name / AliasTTLRecord TypeValue / Points To / Destination
engine1 dayCNAMEyourbusinessname.engine.adglare.net
cdn1 dayCNAMEyourbusinessname.cdn.adglare.net


External Reports

Host / Name / AliasTTLRecord TypeValue / Points To / Destination
reports1 dayCNAMEyourbusinessname.checkout.adglare.net


OK, done! How to enable the White Label?

Note that it can take up to 24 hours for your CNAMEs to be propagated throughout the world. If you browse to your subdomain (like engine.yourdomain.com), you'll find an Activation Code with AdGlare's logo. Found it? Contact AdGlare customer support mentioning the URL(s) showing those activation codes. We'll then switch a few buttons here and you're ready to go.


GoDaddy Instructions

If you're using GoDaddy as a domain registrar, I've outlined below how you can add these CNAME records.

1
Log in to your GoDaddy account.
2
Click Domains => Manage My Domains.
3
Click on your domain from the list.
4
On the DNS Zone File tab, click Add Record.
5
Fill out the form like on the screenshot.
This is an example for setting the engine's CNAME. Change 'mybusiness' for your actual AdGlare ad server name.
