When your store goes live, you need to request your host a CNAME record for your domain for the store created on the Gomag platform.
To see your domain's exact name, go to your Gomag account, Main Menu, Settings. Here, click on the Domains category; at section 4 you will see your domain's name.
Step 1: In the search bar, enter the zone editor syntagm. Click on the section that will open and go to the next step.
Step 2: After Zone Editor opens, click on Manage.
Step 3: A list with DNS Records will open. In this list, look for the name of your domain with www. After you find this option, make sure that in column Type, you select CNAME option, and in the last box, you enter the name yourdemo.gomag.ro
If the DEMO’s name is different from the DOMAIN’s name, you will need to enter the exact name for each in your cPanel.
For example, the domain’s name is www.sportswear.ro, but the DEMO’s name is sportstore.gomag.ro.
In the box where you need to enter the CNAME, you have to enter the DEMO’s name, in our case
sportstore.gomag.ro to perform the redirect. When the store goes live, the DOMAIN’s name will appear, that is sportswear.ro.
After you enter the name of your demo, don’t forget to click on Save Record.
If your store has DNS with Cloudflare, make sure the Cloudflare Proxy is OFF.
After buying a domain, or if you already have one, in the main menu, go to Settings, Domains to replace the .gomag.ro domain you’ve been attributed with the one that you have. If you do not have a domain or a hosting pack for it, you can find all the steps to follow in THIS ARTICLE.
Note: This functionality is available only after selecting a paid plan. You’ve already performed the first 4 steps from Activate a domain in cPanel, at the step explained above. In the platform, you are left with only step 5, that is, to activate your domain.
Step 1: Go to the home page, and in the search bar, enter the Redirects tagline. Click on the open section.
Here, you will be prompted with a window where you need to correctly enter the information to display your website even if it is not searched with www.
Step 2: In the Type section (here labelled 1), choose Permanent (301) option. In the Redirects to section (here labelled 2), enter your domain name with http://www.yourdomain.ro. In www. redirection: section (here labelled 3), you need to check the two boxes as in the image above, respectively Do Not Redirect www and Wild Card Redirect.
After you enter all the necessary information, don’t forget to click on ADD.
If you do NOT go through steps 1 and 2, you will enter the browser yourdomain.ro, without www, a window with the message that your site can not be found will appear. See the image below.
It is recommended to request the activation of an SSL certificate for your store's main domain, as this gives your customers more security. If you need more information about this certification or want to have an active one, contact us via the Contact us for SSL button or contact the account manager in charge of your project.
We will perform the acquisition of an SSL certificate; we cannot instal an already bought SSL certificate.
