Your company's Force.com domain
is used for all the sites that you create. Even if you register a branded Web address for your site, you must choose a Force.com domain. The branded URL will be redirected to the Force.com domain.
CNAME records must include your domain name, your 18–character organization ID, and the suffix live.siteforce.com. For example, if your domain name is www.mycompany.com and your organization ID is 00dx00000000001aaa, then the CNAME must be www.mycompany.com.00dx00000000001aaa.live.siteforce.com. You can find the organization ID on the new domain page in Domain Management within Setup.
To register your Force.com domain:
- From Setup, enter Sites in the Quick Find box, then select Sites.
- Enter a unique name for your Force.com domain. A Force.com domain name can contain only alphanumeric characters and hyphens, and must be unique in your organization. It must begin with a letter, not include spaces, not end in a hyphen, and not contain underscores or periods. Salesforce recommends using your company's name or a variation, such as mycompany.
You can't modify your Force.com domain name after you have registered it.
- Click Check Availability to confirm that the domain name you entered is unique. If it isn't unique, you are prompted to change it.
The format of the secure URLs for your Force.com sites depends on the organization type or Edition. Your unique subdomain prefix is listed first, followed by Edition or environment type, then instance name and the force.com suffix. In the following examples, the subdomain prefix is “mycompany,” the sandbox name is “mysandbox,” the instance name is “na1,” and the sandbox instance name is “cs1”:
The subdomain prefix for Developer Edition is limited to 22 characters. The secure URL is displayed on the Login Settings page. The URL is case sensitive.
