Step 1: Set the DNS record to map your domain to your MiiDuu site.

There are 2 ways to set the DNS record to point to your MiiDuu store:

a) First, set the CNAME record to map to your MiiDuu store URL at storename.miiduu.com . If the store is just a part of your website or if your domain registrar already provides you email services etc, this is the recomended method.

A CNAME DNS record will looks like:

www IN CNAME storename.miiduu.com

For example, if you register your domain with Godaddy.com, you can go to GoDaddy.com. Login to your GoDaddy account and click “Domains” to show all of your domains. Then click the domain name that you want to assign to your store.

1) At this point you will see a “Domain Details” page. Click the "Launch" link in DNS Manager section.

Step 2: Change your MiiDuu store settings to reflect your own domain.

1) Log into to your Miiduu account, you’ll want to go to the "System" tab and click on “Own Domain” in the dropdown menu.

2) From there you will decide if you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your own domain. We strongly recommend this feature as it makes sure the check out process and your customer account pages are in secure https mode. However, it is entirely up to you.

3a) If you choose not to purchase it, just enter in your domain name and click "save" . You are all set.

3b) If you choose to purchase the SSL certificate and click "save", you will be shown the SSL plan and then you can click "Sign up now" and you will be taken to a PayPal page. We will set up the SSL certification for your domain and notify you when your certificate is working. Please notice the certification ONLY works for the specific domain URL that you set, such as, if you set your own domain to be "www.mydomain.com", the SSL certification will only work for https://www.mydomain.com. It won't work in any other subdomain, such as, https://store.mydomain.com .
