Setting Up a Custom Domain and SSL Certificate

This article provides the steps to setup a custom domain instead of the default Self-Service Portal URL

Pre-requisites

Performing this task will require the following:

  • Portal owner privileges
  • Edit privileges on your domain provider (GoDaddy, Namecheap, Google, etc.)
  • Your preferred URL created as a CNAME record, pointing to xyz.microsoftcrmportals.com, where xyz is your portal-specific identifier (e.g. skyblue.microsoftcrmportals.com)
  • A public SSL certificate that will support your portal's custom URL (in .pfx format)

Time required

This configuration process is expected to take 15 minutes.

Additional Notes

After completing the steps outlined in this article, your portal will still continue to work on the old base URL in addition to working on the custom URL that you will configure.
