Setting up vanity URLs

When you're using Passcreator you can add your own URLs to deliver your Wallet passes and landing pages. E.g. you could then use links like this for Wallet passes: https://my.company.com/p/12313445

(This is a premium feature that costs an additional 20€ per month. Please contact us at support@passcreator.com if you want to use it).

Tell us the domains you'd like to use

You can use different domains for Wallet passes and landing pages or the same one for both.
If you'd like to use vanity URLs, send us the domains you want to use by writing an email to support@passcreator.com.

Configure the domains

Domains with a subdomain (for example my.example.com) can be configured as a regular CNAME record. The "canonical" domain will be euw1.flownative.cloud. Here's an example for a correct CNAME record:

my.example.com. CNAME euw1.flownative.cloud.

Zone apex / root domain

Domains without a subdomain (for example example.com) are a bit special. They are called "zone apex" or "root domain" and are not allowed to CNAME to another domain. The domain name system requires them to have an "A" record instead, which points to an ip address instead of a domain name.

 If you want to use a root domain, you need a DNS provider which supports emulating a CNAME for root domains (they will in fact create an A record, but make sure that it automatically and always points to the ip adress of the domain you specified). These special CNAMEs are called a bit differently depending on the provider – here are some examples:

 Cloudflare calls it "ACNAME"
 dnsimple calls it "ALIAS"
 dnsmadeeasy calls it "ANAME"
 That means: you will need a DNS service which supports these kinds of special CNAMEs in order to point example.com to Passcreator. You should avoid creating an A record and use the IP address of euw1.flownative.cloud directly, because that IP address may change in the future!

SSL certificates

Passcreator is assigning an SSL certificate automatically as soon as the domain is set up properly. The SSL certificate and management of it is included in the monthly price.

Final setup

Once everything is set up and ready to go, we'll enable the vanity URLs in your Passcreator account. From now on all passes and landing pages will automatically use your own URLs (with the exception of landing pages that use payment features currently).
