💡 Custom domains are in beta. Reach out if you'd like to test drive.

By default, your shared dashboards will be available under the Gyana web domain at app.gyana.com.

However, if you want to showcase a dashboard to your clients, or even use our dashboards to build a basic website, you might prefer to use a custom domain like dashboards.yourcompany.com.

Here's how you can make that happen in Gyana.

💡 CNAMEs are not available for all plans. Take a look at our pricing page to see if you need to upgrade.

How to map your custom domain

To map a custom domain, you'll need to own it and have access to a DNS provider (like GoDaddy, Google Cloud DNS, Amazon Route53 or Cloudflare).

You'll need to login to your DNS provider, navigate to your domain, and create a new CNAME record to cname.gyana.com.

For example, if you wanted to map dashboards.yourcompany.com, you'll need to:

  • navigate to the domain for yourcompany.com

  • add a CNAME record from dashboards to cname.gyana.com

    • note that you shouldn't include the yourcompany.com here

After this, go to your team settings page on Gyana, and create a new custom domain (CNAME) with the entire domain name. For example, this would be dashboards.yourcompany.com.

Now wait for the domain to connect. You'll be able to view the status for each domain (hover for details). We'll verify that the DNS record is set correctly, and automatically generate an SSL certificate for your domain. If you get a warning or failure, check your DNS settings, take a look at troubleshooting or reach out to us.

Finally, you need to choose a custom domain for each project. With Gyana, it's possible to use separate custom domains for different clients and projects. You can do this while creating a new project, or in the project settings.

Now, when you share a dashboard, we'll generate the shareable URL using your custom domain. Don't worry, the existing Gyana domain URLs will continue to be valid.

Note for Cloudflare users: Make sure to disable proxying (the orange cloud icon).

Setting up CNAMEs is always tricky due to issues with how DNS propagation works. If you have any trouble at all, feel free to reach out on chat and we'll guide you through the process.
