 Steps to Assign / Associate a Custom Domain to another User/s in Socxly

 

Click on Add Users

  1. Enter the Email Id of the user who is also a registered user of Socxly (paid or free)
  2. Choose the User and on Save, the User will get a notification that a Custom Domain has been assigned / associated by the user (who has configured the custom domain in their account)


Assigned Domains View for the User

List of Users you have assigned / associated your Custom Domain




Remove Assigned Users for a Custom Domain

Select User/s and click on Remove to remove assignment of Custom Domain to the User/s.

Note:

If you remove the assignment / association, assigned users can’t use the Custom Domain further to create short links.

However, they can still use the ‘socx.ly’ platform default domain for creating new short links



What will happen to Short Links created by the Users if their Custom Domain assignment / association is removed?

Note – Removal of Custom Domain assignment for the User will not affect the Short Links previously created with the Custom Domain by the User and they will continue to persist and be active

 

Expired Domain Name or Deletion of a Custom Domain from Socxly

At the moment, we do not give the option to Delete or Remove your Custom Domain linked in Socxly, since it can disrupt the Short Links created with the respective Custom Domain.

Also, ensure that the Domain Names associated with a Socxly Custom Domain are still valid / live with your Domain Provider.

  1. If a Domain Name expires with your Domain Provider, it can cause issues for the Short Links created with it.
  2. If a Domain Name is transferred between Domain Providers, you need to reset the DNS Record configurations again.
