Custom Domains

You can use your own domain with a website created in Sketch using Anima.

There are 2 steps to do that:

  1. Create a CNAME and an ‘A’ record in your domain provider settings
  2. Add your custom domain to your Anima Website Settings

1. Create a CNAME Record

Create a CNAME record that points your domain to our servers:

  • Type: CNAME
  • Host: www
  • Points to: ns1.animaapp.com

Next, we are going to setup the “naked” domain which is your domain but without the ‘www‘.

Create a new ‘A’ record:

  • Type: A
  • Host: @
  • IP Address: 35.164.217.247

Now, your websites should be accessible from:

  1. http://yourdomain.com
  2. http://www.yourdomain.com

❗️Important:

  • To avoid any conflicts, your domain provider’s settings should only have these two Anima records. Please delete any other existing record
  • Domain changes can take between a few minutes to a few hours to take effect

2. Add a Custom Domain

Next step is to add your domain to your Projects settings:

  1. Go to your Projects dashboard
  2. Click […] on your website/project and select Settings
  3. Go to the Website tab and click Add Domain
  4. Enter your domain, including ‘www.‘, and click Add
  5. In the top right corner click on Publish to www…

SSL Certification

If you need to setup SSL for your custom domain, please contact support@animaapp.com with your domain and Anima account email address.
