Custom domain

Using custom domain, you can access your documentation website without going to <subdomain>.dimerapp.com. In this guide, we learn how to set up one.

Configuring DNS provider

The first step is to configure your DNS provider so that it should forward all requests to the Dimer servers. This is achieved by creating a CNAME entry.

Assuming your custom domain is mydocs.com and your dimer address is mydocs.dimerapp.com. You will have to create the following CNAME entry.

mydocs    ->    mydocs.dimerapp.com

Updating Dimer config

Once you have updated your DNS provider, open dimer.json file and enter the custom domain inside the cname field.

dimer.json
{
  "cname": "mydocs.com"
}

And then run dimer publish to update the config.
