By default, customers can access your shopping cart via yourcomany.foodstorm.com. However if you prefer, you can use your own domain name (e.g. shop.yourcompany.com).
First you need a pick a sub-domain of your domain name to use for the shopping cart, a sub-domain appears before your domain name, for example shop.yourcompany.com. It is not possible to use a top-level domain (e.g. yourcompany.com).
To use your own domain name with your FoodStorm shopping cart:
- (Note: This step is quite technical, and would typically be performed by the people who manage your domain name). Add a cname record to your DNS, which points to public.foodstorm.com.
- To activate the domain name, go to the Settings page in FoodStorm, and click the Shopping Cart section.
- Click Edit.
- Next to Secondary address, enter the full address of your shopping cart (e.g. shop.yourcompany.com)
- Click Save.
Your own domain name should now be active. Note that any previous web address you were using for your shopping cart will no longer be active.
