Routing Subdomain Traffic to a Primary Domain
Let’s propose the following scenario:
Use Case: Route Traffic from your Subdomain https://mydomain.com to https://www.mydomain.com.
The user would have two scenarios that might occur as they go to your site:
client —> https://www.mydomain.com
client —-> https://mydomain.com –> QuotaGuard Proxies –> https://www.mydomain.com
How would you do it? 3 easy steps…
1) Add https://mydomain.com as a custom domain to your inbound proxy.
2) Upload your security certificates for https://mydomain.com in the QuotaGuard Admin Inbound setup.
3) Update the DNS records for mydomain.com to point to the two IPs QuotaGuard provides to you.
Alternate (and the more secure) Solution: Use the QuotaGuard “certificate-less” service - QuotaGuard Shield - and create an inbound proxy pointing to https://www.mydomain.com for https://mydomain.com, then update the DNS.
QuotaGuard Shield does not require you upload certificates to our dashboard and removes the risk of a third party attack on QuotaGuard that potentially could compromise your certificates.
