With Ontray, you’re free to use your own domain or subdomain name to host your online menu. Doing so just requires an update to your DNS setting which can be adjusted in your domain registrar’s account page. Common registrars are GoDaddy.com, NameCheap.com, and Name.com.

To get started let the Ontray team know which domain or subdomain you’d like to use for your menu. Once our team has been notified, find the section below that applies to you and update your DNS settings accordingly.

Primary Domain Name Only (example.com)

Record 1

  • Host: @ (none)
  • Record Type: A
  • Value: 104.196.35.30

Record 2

  • Host: www
  • Record Type: CNAME
  • Value: example.com

Subdomain Only (menu.example.com)

Record 1

  • Host: menu
  • Record Type: A
  • Value: 104.196.35.30

Primary and Subdomain (example.com and catering.example.com)

This situation is commonly found when the primary menu is located at the root domain (example.com) and another menu, often the catering menu, is located at a subdomain.

Record 1

  • Host: @ (none)
  • Record Type: A
  • Value: 104.196.35.30

Record 2

  • Host: www
  • Record Type: CNAME
  • Value: example.com

Record 3

  • Host: catering
  • Record Type: CNAME
  • Value: example.com

Setting up Security (SSL Protection)

All Ontray websites must have a valid SSL certificate to protect sensitive customer information. All ontrayapp.com websites have one applied by default but if you’re using your own domain we’ll need to get another.

If you already have a certificate for the domain you’d like to use please contact the Ontray team so we can begin using it. If you don’t already have one we can configure one on your behalf for $10 / year.
