Amazon Web Services: Setting up a Custom Domain

In order to use a custom domain for tracking from Amazon Web Services you need to, first of all, purchase it and then, secondly, configure it according to instructions below.

I. Configure a Custom Domain on Amazon Side

The following section described how to set up the redirection from your custom domain ("" in this example) to the Voluum Dedicated Domain. To do so, perform the following steps:

  1. Purchase your domain from and sign in to your account.

  2. Go to the Services tab.

  3. Go to the Networking & Content Delivery card and select the Route 53 or search "Route 53" in the search field and select it.

  4. Select the Hosted Zones.

  7. Select the CNAME - Canonical name from the Type drop-down menu.

  8. In the Name field provide your custom subdomain name, "track" in this example.

  9. Copy the name of your Dedicated Domain address name from the Domains tab in Voluum and provide it in the Value field.


    Voluum Note: All domains assigned to your account you can find in the Domains tab in Voluum. If the Dedicated Domain is already available on your account, you need to point to the Dedicated Domain. Otherwise, you should provide a name of one of the Voluum legacy domains.

  10. Provide the lowest TTL (Time to live, i.e. time to propagate all changes through network) value in seconds, "60" in this example, for faster DNS changes propagation.
