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 Settings-> Applications.
  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).
