QR Code White Label Domain

With the White Label solution you are able to run the QR Code manager platform of qrd°by under your own sub domain. All QR Codes will be encoded with your domain, you can create user accounts under your domain and you can brand the platform with your own logo, name and colors. Users will not see any sign or hint that the service is hosted by qrd.by.

To unlock your White Label instance, just enter your sub domain name (e.g. qr.mydomain.com) in the branding section (Hint: A shorter domain name, will create QR Codes that may be printed in a smaller size, since less characters are encoded).

Make sure that you are the owner of the domain and that you created your chosen sub domain (e.g. qr) at your registrar before. In the created sub domain create a CName-Record that points to the URL qr.webapp-portal.com. Our administrators will change your given default domain (usually <username>.qrd.by) to the new one you provide within 24 hours.

How to setup a sub domain and a CNAME-Record

The following figures and tutorials are based on our domain provider Domaindiscount24. He allows almost any RFC conform DNS configuration. You can create unlimited subdomains or wildcard domains and set any TXT or CNAME entry.

In the following figures you see how to create a sub domain and set a CNAME-Record for your white label platform. In the domain manager select your domain and create a sub domain for it:

Under CNAME-Settings on your created sub domain add the CNAME-Record qr.webapp-portal.com. This entry links your sub domain with our portal.

How to verify your CName-Record

Depending on your registrar, it may take up to 24 hours until the domain really points to our server. If you experience problems setting a CNAME-Record please contact your hosting partner or registrar.

To check if your CNAME entry was successful, simply do a nslookup for your chosen sub domain and see if the result includes the CNAME URL qr.webapp-portal.com.

nslookup-en

You can also use the online web interface https://www.digwebinterface.com to check from different DNS Servers if your CNAME entry has been distributed. Just enter your custom domain in the Hostname window, select CNAME as the type and click on “Dig”. You should see your domain pointing to qr.webapp-portal.com at the bottom.

Note: Do NOT use A-Records

avoid a-record domain registrar

A-Records are not supported, since we have multiple IP addresses in our cloud for load balancing.The IP for your white label instance might changes over time.

Note: Do NOT use a Redirect or Forward

forward

Do not use a forward or redirect. Your domain will not be recognized by our servers.

Note: Do NOT use CNAME Records in the Root Domain

CNAME’ing a root record (e.g. mydomain.com) is technically not against RFC, but does have limitations, meaning it is a practice that is not recommended. Normally your root record will have multiple entries (e.g. name servers and an IP address)

Per RFC: If a CNAME record is present at a node, no other data should be present.

Once you successfully setup your custom domain, we will add an SSL certificate to your domain within the next 48 hours.
