Bring your Custom Domain Name

Starting today you can use your own domain name with rethumb.

By using CNAME records it is possible to point any subdomain to our server.

  1. Choose a subdomain: something like images.yoursite.com.

  2. Create a CNAME record with name=images.yoursite.com and value=domains.rethumb.com within your DNS managament service.

  3. Login into our dashboard at https://dashboard.rethumb.com and create a CNAME record with your subdomain name (images.yoursite.com).

  4. Wait for your DNS changes to propagate and our servers to update.

After these steps you can start using rethumb with your own domain, example:

http://images.yoursite.com/v1/square/100/http://images.rethumb.com/image_coimbra_300x300.jpg

That will work in the same way as:

http://api.rethumb.com/v1/square/100/http://images.rethumb.com/image_coimbra_300x300.jpg
