Custom domain name
In most cases you wouldn't want to use CloudFront's distribution domain to access your application. Instead, you can specify a custom domain name.
You can use any domain name but you must be using AWS Route53 for your DNS hosting. To migrate DNS records from an existing domain follow the instructions here. The requirements to use a custom domain name:
- Route53 must include a hosted zone for your domain (e.g.
mydomain.com) with a set of nameservers.
- You must update the nameservers listed with your domain name registrar (e.g. namecheap, godaddy, etc.) with those provided for your new hosted zone.
The serverless next.js component will automatically generate an SSL certificate and create a new record to point to your CloudFront distribution.
domain: "example.com" # sub-domain defaults to www
You can also configure a
domain: ["sub", "example.com"] # [ sub-domain, domain ]
