Thursday’s release day, and today we delivering another key service on the Fleek CLI beta: the Custom Domains Service, allowing you to map DNS domains to your Fleek sites!
Any user can now fully deploy a static website onto IPFS, add a DNS domain to it (e.g. yourdapp.com) and have it resolve, and be fully hosted via Fleek. You can find guides to all new features detailed in our docs.
Configure a DNS Domain with your IPFS Website
Fleek’s Custom Domain service is a set-it-and-forget-it feature. Once you configure your domain with your site, the content will be automatically updated without the need of your intervention.
Fleek will get the IPFS CID and update the references on the CDN pull zones that are configured into your domain during the setup process.
