Using your own domain name with the FoodStorm shopping cart

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:

  1. (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.
  2. To activate the domain name, go to the Settings page in FoodStorm, and click the Shopping Cart section.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Next to Secondary address, enter the full address of your shopping cart (e.g. shop.yourcompany.com)
  5. 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.
