Using a Custom Domain
You can customize your DAM’s domain name. For example, instead of accessing Webdam through company.webdamdb.com, you could change that domain to images.company.com.
All Webdam accounts are securely encrypted using SSL. To ensure Webdam accounts are always secure, we require you to provide an SSL certificate when implementing custom domains for your account.
- Notify your implementation consultant (IC) or customer success manager (CSM) that your company is interested in implementing a custom domain.
- Obtain an SSL certificate for your custom domain. Here are two options for obtaining an SSL certificate:
- Purchase an SSL certificate for the custom domain from a certificate signing request (CSR). You can request a certificate signing request (CSR) from your IC or CSM. (A CSR is required for purchasing an SSL certificate.)
- Your IT team may already have a process for obtaining an SSL certificate. Webdam will require the private key in addition to the SSL certificate.
NOTE: See Additional information below for accepted SSL certificates.
- Provide SSL certificate to your CSM.
- Have your IT team set up a CNAME record for the custom domain to point to your Webdam domain.
- Your CSM will notify you once the SSL certificate is set up. You can now securely access your Webdam account through your custom domain.
Additional information on SSL Certificate:
- Webdam supports the following certificate types
- Single domain (most common)
- Subject alternative name (SAN)
- Webdam-installed certificate on an Apache web server.
- Certificate should be provided in PEM format.
