1. Buy a domain name

First of all you should bought a domain name from domain registrars like (GoDaddy, DNSimple, Namecheap...etc), in this example Namecheap will be used to manage our domain name.

We already have a domain name xtestgo.xyz from namecheap which will be used in this tutorial.

2. Reserve it on localxpose

After you bought a domain name you can now reserve it on localxpose as follows:

Reserve a domain name using CLI

3. Add cname record

From Namecheap dashboard --> Domain List --> click on "Manage" button

Go to advanced DNS

Advanced DNS



From dropdown menu click on "CNAME Record"

CNAME Record

Finally enter the host and value which you reserved from step 2, in our case the host is www.xtestgo.xyz and the value is 8kplouxq3znu.cname.loclx.io and then click "Save Changes"

Enter host and value

4. Verify cname record

You can verify the cname record if it is added correctly from localxpose

loclx domain status --domain www.xtestgo.xyz

5. Start a tunnel

Finally you can use the reserved custom domain name in your tunnel

loclx tunnel http --reserved-domain www.xtestgo.xyz

Go to that custom domain name
