Domains

Convenience domains

  • Each new VIP Go environment is provisioned with a convenience domain for use during initial development and to facilitate pre-launch tasks. The convenience domain will be a subdomain of .go-vip.net or .go-vip.co (e.g. example.go-vip.net).
  • To ensure your site is as secure as possible, we do not allow launched production sites to use the convenience domain and you must procure a custom domain (e.g. example.com), before your site launches.
  • Non-production sites on VIP Go can continue to use the go-vip.net or go-vip.co convenience subdomain, which is covered by a wildcard TLS certificate. All sites using this convenience subdomain are set to the whole-site HTTPS option described above, with all HTTP traffic being redirected to HTTPS; this cannot be changed.
  • Non-production environments are highly encouraged to use a mapped domain (e.g. develop.example.com).
  • Sub-subdomains of the convenience domain are not currently supported.

FQDNs

VIP Go can support either the www or non-www variant of your domain as the fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

Adding and mapping domains

  • Domains are added and mapped in the VIP Dashboard.
  • All mapped domains on VIP Go require a TLS certificate. Procurement, installation, and renewal of certificates can be handled by the VIP Team.
