Giving help and using private projects

#1

I’d like to give help to get access to the custom domain feature, but I don’t see any documentation or links to see people needing help. Where is this?

Also the documentation says you can make a project hidden, but my project has no lock icon like the ones in the example GIF to click. Why is this?

Hello @cbenard,

For your first question, You can add a custom domain with 2 options.
Option 1:

  • Go to your project and go to the bottom left “Tools section”
  • Click “Custom Domains”
  • Enter in your url you would like to link.
  • Go to your domain control panel. Go to the DNS configuration.
  • Use @ if the url you used is an apex link (yourwebsite.com) or the subdomain if you used one (www.yourwebsite.com).
  • Have the DNS configuration point to “glitch.edgeapp.net” or else the shw.io link you were provided with on glitch!
  • All done! (Test and see if it works).

Option 2:

  • Go to the website: https://fly.io
  • Create an account (Or login if you already have one).
  • Go to the following page => https://fly.io/sites (Only shows page when logged in**)
  • Click the “New site” option.
  • Select “Hosting service” and glitch “Glitch”
  • Enter the URL of your glitch project.
  • Enter the domain you are using.
  • Go to your dns configuration and set the host pointing to the shw.io link you are given!
  • All done! (Go to the middleware and add https upgrader to use https instead of http)

** I recommend option 2 if you would like to have your site secured with https

For the private project option, Just go to your project and click on the “Share button” then click the lock!

For the custom domain, I was trying to use option 1, but I am told “Help others and get thanked 2 more times to use this”. However, there are never any outstanding questions to help anyone with. Is there a way to nicely request access to this feature?

Regarding the private project, thank you for the instructions. The documentation on the site shows a different process (the project properties).

The method of locking a project was changed a few weeks back so that could be the cause of that,
For the other problem, you can use option 2 and you will not need any thanks to proceed with that option!
