Linking a domain to your server
This guide is for running an HTTP server that you want to link your domain to, through our reverse proxy.
To begin, you will need to get your numerical server ID (not to be confused with it's UUID). Your numerical server ID is a number. The easiest way to get this at the moment is on your server's manage server page where you can find the ID in the URL.
Get your server ID in the url.
Ok great, now you have your server ID you simply need to add a CNAME record pointing to
<your server ID>.site.bot-hosting.net. For example with my ID, 8787, I would point it at
Example setup with Cloudflare.
You can set the name to
@to use your root domain name without any subdomain.
If you want to be able to visit your site with HTTPS you need a TLS certificate.
We recommend you use Cloudflare for getting a TLS certificate, it's free and works great. Firstly if you have not already, you need to move your domain's name servers to Cloudflare by signing up at https://dash.cloudflare.com and setting it up.
Then you need to setup a CNAME record same as above but this time make sure the
Proxy statusoption is checked.
DNS record with proxying enabled.
But this alone won't work. Since you are now passing the connection through a proxy, we can't figure out what target you're connecting to, so you need to add a
TXTrecord as well. This TXT record should contain
bh-server=<your server ID>.
A TXT record for which server to target.
Make sure you have SSL/TLS Encryption Mode set to flexible. Now you should be able to visit your domain through an HTTPS connection in your browser.
