Managing Your Own Domains

Many companies have more than one domain, for various reasons such as branding, marketing, search engine optimization (SEO) and legal.

Domains are configured when adding a new web application. Click here for more information about creating a web application. You can add your own custom domain for which you need to add a server certificate and public DNS record, or use a domain hosted by Axis Security, which does not require them.

Using Your Own Domain

Adding the Domain and Certificate in the Management Console

  1. In the Management Console, click Settings-> Destinations.
  2. Create a new application by clicking Add Application, or edit an existing one by clicking Edit icon next to the relevant application.

  1. Under Remote Address select Use a domain you own.
  2. Type the URL.
  3. Copy or take note of the CNAME. You will need it for the DNS records.
  4. Click Upload Pfx to upload a certificate. If prompted, enter the password for the file.



To commit your changes, navigate to the top-right menu, click Apply Changes, then select Commit Changes.

Creating a DNS Record

  1. Go to your DNS host.
  2. Create a new record using the domain you entered in the Axis Management Console.
  3. Add the CNAME as it appeared in the web application dialog (step 5).
