Hello, I use glitch to send interactive 3D models to people for review. The URLs that I send out contain the original, glitch.me, in them. Is it possible to remove this or change it to something else?
For example I would like to send my URL format as
https:///mysite.glitch.me/NAME_OF_HTML_FILE.html (extra slash because I am unable to attach 2 links)
Not an experienced coder.
this process refers to getting a “custom domain.” the default domain that you get for free on Glitch is the
mysite.glitch.me, while a custom domain might be
I’ll talk about three things you need in order to do this.
- everyone everywhere needs to agree what
mysite.com is. what works currently is to register in a great big worldwide, shared system that keeps track of every domain name. that costs money fyi, with “.com” domains being somewhere around $10 per year. this is called “domain registration,” and there are various companies that will do it. for money, of course.
- once the world agrees that you’re in charge of
mysite.com, you need to tell that great big worldwide, shared system that browsers opening a
mysite.com URL should connect to Glitch. this part is kind of fiddly, but we have people here who can help you.
- you need to set up Glitch to understand that when browsers connect to it looking for
mysite.com, Glitch should send your project in response. and you’ll be annoyed that I buried this point last, but there is currently no way to do that. see their notice about this: https://help.glitch.com/hc/en-us/articles/16287558909965-Adding-a-Custom-Domain
we’re all waiting for that last thing to come back in service
