How do I add a Custom Temporary URL?

You may want to replace 20i's white label temporary URL (stackstaging.com) with your own custom temporary URL. To add a custom staging URL you'll need to have a registered domain name within your 20i account. You can either register a new one or transfer-in an existing domain. 

Please note: the domain name cannot be associated with an existing hosting package, so you may want to register a new domain solely for the purpose of customising the temporary URL.

To add your custom temporary URL: 

  • Login to your My20i account.
  • Select the Hosting Package Types icon under Reseller Preferences.

  • Locate the hosting package type you want to add a custom temporary URL for and select Edit.

My20i Manage Hosting Package Types

  • Scroll to the bottom the page and you will see the Temporary URL Domain section. Select a domain from the dropdown menu. This will become the temporary URL you and your customers will see for all packages on the hosting package type selected.

Being able to add a unique custom temporary URL to each hosting package type allows you differentiate between a WordPress temporary URL and a Linux temporary URL. 

For example, you could have the temporary URLs: MyBusinessWordPressStaging.com and MyBusinessLinuxStaging.com

However, you may want to keep things simple and use one custom temporary URL for all hosting packages - that's up to you!
