Can I use my own domain name?
Yes, you may assign your own domain name to point to your Playbook. Choose “Custom Domain” in the customize pane, enter the domain you wish to use and hit Save.
Next you need to point that domain at Dribbble’s servers. Head over to your domain provider’s website (Hover, GoDaddy, Amazon Route 53, DNSimple, etc) and find where you manage your DNS settings. This is where you create the record to point your domain at your Dribbble Playbook.
If you’re using a subdomain (like
playbook.example.com), create a CNAME record with
domains.dribbble.com as the value.
If you’re using a root domain (like
example.com), create an
ANAME record with
domains.dribbble.com as the value. The name of this type of record will vary by your provider.
If your provider does not support root domains pointing to a hostname, you can use an
A record pointing to our IP address instead. Create a new
A record for your root domain, and enter
188.8.131.52 as the value.
We strongly encourage using
domains.dribbble.com if at all possible instead of the IP address. The IP address is not guaranteed to stay the same forever. It’s very unlikely that we’d have to change it, but it could happen and that would cause your Playbook to stop working until you update your DNS records to point to the new IP address. If this does happen, we’ll send out communication to all Playbook users alerting them of the need to update.
Do you offer SSL support for Playbook?
We do! Playbooks on our subdomain (
USERNAME.dribbble.com) already have SSL enabled, so you don’t need to do anything for those. For custom domains, you just need to update your DNS records to follow the instructions outlined above. A certificate will automatically be generated the first time you go to your Playbook!
