Create and Verify Custom Domain

Although it is possible to register any domain you can control and access; we recommend using one that will satisfy the Same Site policy.

Assuming your web property resides at http://example.org, we recommend using a subdomain, for example, s.example.org.

Once you decide on a name, adding a new domain requires a few steps.

Let's start

Go to Create Domain form. Alternatively, you can navigate to it by selecting Dashboard > Domains > Create Domain. Create new Custom Domain

Domain name

Type in new, fully qualified domain, and press Create. Enter Fully Qualified Domain Name - FQDN

New domain

New domain starts in INACTIVE state. List of domains will quickly show which require further actions

Click on the domain to view its details and update its status.

Verify Ownership

Please create TXT record with values provided. Verify domain ownership

And press Verify in the second item, in the Domain Status box.

Configure target

Please create CNAME record with the value provided. You want your new domain to point to stats.wideangle.co. Verify domain target

And press Verify in the third item, in the Domain Status box.

Wait for the SSL certificate to get generated.

Once ownership and target are confirmed, the system will request a new SSL certificate for your domain. To generate your certificate, we leverage Let's Encrypt. Wait for SSL Certificate

This process usually takes a few minutes. Please review the status of your domain in a few minutes.

Confirm domain status

Once an SSL certificate is generated, your domain is ready to be used. You can confirm it but checking the domain status. Verify domain status

If the domain is not in an ACTIVE state, or you believe SSL Verification is not progressing, feel free to reach out to support. We will happily assist you in this matter.

Use your domain

The Tracker domain dropdown will list your newly added domain in the new Site dialogue and the Site configuration panel. Configure Site to use new domain tracker

Update script location on your site

After configuring your site to use the new domain, please go to your Site details and copy the newly generated script block. Update Tracker script location

The new block exposes tracking code using your new domain.

Wide Angle Analytics requires up to 10 minutes to synchronize changes applied to the domain and site after these are configured. Please note that the tracking script might reject incoming events until this synchronisation completes.
