Control your own DNS
Use a custom domain with Fission and keep control of your DNS
By adding a TXT record for your app and a CNAME pointing at our gateway, you can run your DNS elsewhere but still have a custom domain for your Fission app.

Add a CNAME pointing to ipfs.runfission.com

For your domain, YOURAPPDOMAIN.com, go into your DNS provider control panel and add a CNAME pointing to ipfs.runfission.com.
Record
Type
Value
@ (root)
CNAME
ipfs.runfission.com
@ usually represents the "root" or domain apex. Some DNS providers don't support a CNAME for your root, so you'll need to add a CNAME for www instead.
The process for a subdomain is the same SUB.YOURAPPDOMAIN.com, but looks a little different. Go into your DNS provider control panel and add a CNAME pointing to ipfs.runfission.com.
Record
Type
Value
SUB
CNAME
ipfs.runfission.com
Now, add a TXT record pointing to your app subdomain. Your APPNAME is created when you run fission app-init, and will look something like junior-angular-tulip . We're creating a link to say that the content from that app should be served up at your domain with a special dnslink record:
Record
Type
Value
_dnslink
TXT
dnslink=/ipns/APPNAME.fission.app
Again, subdomains function the same way, with the _dnslink subdomain, where you're adding the TXT record being "above" the SUB.YOURDOMAIN.com record, which looks like this:
Record
Type
Value
_dnslink.SUB
TXT
dnslink=/ipns/APPNAME.fission.app
