Add Whitelabel / Suffix Domain

InstaWP allows you to enable the whitelabel feature to add a Suffix Domain to your WordPress site to specify the sort of website represented by the domain name. For example, every commercial enterprise or corporation with a website will have a domain suffix of “.com”, indicating that it is a commercial entity.

Adding a separate suffix domain to your web address gives you more options when choosing a URL (<>) for your website. Some prominent domain suffixes include ".edu," ".net," ".gov," and ".org," among others.

In this documentation, we will explore the steps to add a suffix domain to your site.

Let’s get started 🚀

Note: This feature is only available as an add-on not included in the pricing subscription plan. For more, refer to this doc.

Access Whitelabel Option

Go to the Team Profile option and click on the team setting icon to access its settings page.

Note: You can enter “” or “” of your website or "" with different language sub-domain, it is upto you. For example, Google uses a subdomain for Gmail ””. Just make sure you have permission to create NS records for the subdomain or the main domain. If you use the main domain, you won't be able to use it for any other purpose.

DNS Management

Most domain registrars only allow adding basic DNS addresses and not specific records like A, MX, and CNAME, which some people manage from hosting accounts. Managed hosting providers typically don't offer this, so users often turn to third-party DNS services like Cloudflare, which supports comprehensive DNS management and more.

Step 1: Create a new Cloudflare account.

Step 2: Add the domain name to which you have added the new suffix domain name on InstaWP's team settings page.

Step 3: Once the domain name is verified and active, add all NS records one by one.

Come back to the InstaWP team settings page and Verify record.

Note: If you don't see the "Verified" badge, wait for 2-3 mins and hit on "Verify" again.

Existing Sites & Templates

Once the suffix domain is added, InstaWP allows you to integrate it into your existing staging site and templates.
