We require that all customer portals are secured using SSL and officially only support portal URLs using a Channeltivity subdomain, but if you're technically savvy you can use your own domain. With your own web server and SSL certificate (or using one of the services mentioned below) you can set up a reverse proxy and access your Channeltivity portal using a custom domain:
- Set up a website with an SSL certificate for your custom domain, e.g. https://partners.mycompany.com

- Voila! You have a custom domain with SSL.
Please note that using a reverse proxy is not supported and that we won't be able to help you with any configuration issues.
