Custom domain

All sites are deployed on a subdomain of 'super.site'. In addition to this, you can put your site on any domain or subdomain that you own.

Adding a custom domain to your site

To add a domain to your site, first head into your site editor (cog icon) and click into the "Domains" page, then click the "Add a custom domain" button. After entering your own domain address in the popup, you'll then need to make some changes to the DNS settings through your hosting provider.

You would need to do this through your domain registrar's (GoDaddy, Namecheap, Google Domains, etc) or DNS provider's (Cloudflare, Netlify, etc) website. For specific instructions, view the content inside the toggle blocks below.

Using Cloudflare?

Cloudflare offers many services besides DNS. Some of these can cause your site to not load properly is misconfigured. Here are common problems and solutions for Cloudflare.

Root domain records on Cloudflare

For all domains hosted on Cloudflare, the proxy must be disabled and set to DNS only. You'll also need to use these records instead:

TypeNameValue
CNAME
@
cname.super.so
CNAME
www
cname.super.so

Using Cloudflare proxy

When Cloudflare proxy is on your site may show an error err_too_many_redirects.

This issue occurs when your Cloudflare SSL/TLS configuration is set to "Flexible". This will have Cloudflare send requests to Super over HTTP and in response Super will send data back over HTTPS. To keep all our connections secure you must request Cloudflare to only send requests over HTTPS. To fix this issue, the "SSL/TLS" option in Cloudflare needs to be set to "Full" or "Full (strict)".
