Changing Domains; Using Original Domains

Using a Domain Provided by ReadyShip

RedyShip offers pre-made subdomains that can be used at no extra charge. Additionally, you can set up your own original domain. Our service also includes SSL (HTTPS) certificate at no extra charge.

Using an Original Domain

Setting up an original domain is included in our service at no extra charge. We also provide SSL for free. The procedure for setting up an original domain is described below:

  1. Notify us of the domain you want to use via our support email address or via the Intercom chat window on the right bottom corner on your screen.
  2. We will send you an email with DNS records that you will have to put in your domain provider dashboard.
  3. Wait until AWS verifies the records. Usually it takes just a few hours but in the AWS documentation it is stated that sometimes it might take up to 3 days.
  4. After AWS verifies the records, we will reconfigure your website and notify you via email that your domain has been successfully changed.

If you don’t know how to configure your DNS, don’t worry. Our team can help you perform this.

When using an Apex Domain (such as When using a domain that takes the form known as “Apex domain”, you will just need to point your name-server at a DNS provided by ReadyShip. However, if you are already using your domain for things such as email domain etc., a settings migration will be required. Our support team can fully assist you, so feel free to contact us first.

When Changing an SSL Certificate

SSL certificates provided by ReadyShip are issued by Amazon Web Service’s Certificate Manager. You may change your certificate to an SSL issued by another institution (such as an EV certificate). If you wish to do so, please contact our support team.

Using an Original Domain Name for Your Email Address

For example, you may wish to change the sender of automatic email replies to inquiries so that it is an email address with your original domain name.
If you have an email service that you contracted yourself (such as Google or other cloud email services), you can also use that email.
If you are using an original mail server, you will need to reconfigure your SMTP settings. For this purpose you can use the well-known plugin WP Mail SMTP by WPForms or other plugins of your choice. You can also set up your site to use ReadyShip’s AWS infrastructure. In this case please contact our support team.
