CNAME Setup: 1and1

1) Set Up the CNAME on the MoFuse Platform

  • Log into your MoFuse account, and open the site you wish to configure a custom domain name for.
  • Click on the  'Site Settings' icon to navigate to the site settings configuration page.
  • Click on the 'Custom Domain Settings' link found in the upper right hand corner.
  • Enter in the desired custom domain name, then click 'Update'

NOTE: The recommended naming format is m.<domain name> (e.g. m.mofuse.com, m.example.org). This is not a requirement however and alternate naming conventions can be used.
