Off-Campus Domains

For any off-campus domain (e.g. a domain that does not end in .gatech.edu), a few more steps are required for configuring the domain beyond setting the custom domain for a site in PWP.

Process

Proper setup of the off-campus domain (and its www.{customdomain} alternative) require the following:

  • Use a host record with the "same as domain" setting and without a reverse (PTR) record. For the record data, use the actual IP address for PWP (143.215.248.18).
  • Create a CNAME for 'www' that maps to the host record you just created.
