Custom Namecheap Domain with Heroku
So I just got my new Heroku Cedar Stack set up with a custom URL, and surpassingly it was a bit more confusing than I thought ( on the Namecheap side).
Below are the steps I used to configure my custom domain, mbseid.com with my Heroku instance.
From the console run this heroku toolbelt command:
$ heroku domains:add www.mbseid.com
Then in Namecheap, log into your admin and select your domain:
- Navigate to All Host Records
- Then for the www host name, enter mbseidblog.herokuapp.com.
- (KEY: must end with a .) with a CNAME record type.
You will then be good to go.
