When you create and publish a website using Statictastic, your site gets a domain address. This domain looks something like:
9d8da483-ad4a-4b18-9f01-dde0426391ec.statictastic.site. It allows you to visit and share your website.
If you are planning to make your site available to your customers and users, it makes sense to use a custom domain (e.g.
This guide assumes that you have:
Every site in Statictastic has its own domain. When you visit the “Sites” section, you’ll find the “Domain” of your site (remember that only sites that were published have a domain).
Statictastic supports custom domain configuration using CNAME records. Using CNAME records, you can map domains like
blog.mywebsite.com to your Statictastic site.
In order to configure your custom domain, you’ll have to access your DNS provider and set up a CNAME record which points to your Statictastic domain. Let’s use the following example:
www.mywebsite.comto your Statictastic site
To achieve this you’ll need to create a CNAME record in your DNS provider, using the
www name pointing to your Statictastic domain (in our example
Different DNS providers have different ways of offering this feature. Below you can see how the set up looks like when using Namecheap DNS provider:
Once you have created the CNAME record, it might take up to 48 hours until the changes are propagated.
With your CNAME configured, now it’s time to configure Statictastic. Go to the “Sites” section and click on the site you want to configure. Select the “Domain” section of the site:
There are two options when setting up your site’s domain in Statictastic:
Select the “Use a custom domain” option, enter the domain you want to use (
www.mywebsite.com in our example) and click on the “Save” button.
Your domain is now saved, but it is still not active. Statictastic only enables your custom domain once it was successfully verified. The verification process checks if your domain was properly configured to point to your website. In our example, it checks if there is a CNAME record that points
Once Statictastic successfully verifies the CNAME configuration, it displays a “Domain verified” message:
Keep in mind it can take up to 48 hours until your domain changes are propagated and only after that Statictastic is able to verify your domain.
