Assigning Domain

Assigning a domain name to a license is an action that will enable your CU3ER to display correctly, without branding on your target domain. Until you assign domain to your license all CU3ER's exported will have branded slides and CU3ER preloader on start. Assigning a domain name is not necessary to create and manage projects.

LITE users cannot assign domain to their license, since it is automatically assigned to getcu3er.com.
Once LITE user upgrades to PRO he will be able to assign domain.

To assign domain to active license please do the followin:

  1. Click on a yellow button "Assign Domain" in license row
    CU3ER Account - Assign domain

  2. Popup "Assign domain to PRO license" will appear
    CU3ER Account - Assign domain popup

  3. Enter your domain name in the input field. Make sure you have entered correct domain name as once assigned, domain name can’t be changed as license is bounded with that domain name for good.
    Please note you need to enter just domain name (e.g. my-site.com) without ‘http://’ and ‘www’

  4. Click on the button "Proceed". If you've entered valid domain name, you will go to next step "Confirm domain name". You can confirm assigning of domain name by clicking button "Yes, assign domain now!" or go back to editing domain name by clicking "Edit domain name" button.

    Congratulations! Your have assigned domain to your license.
  6. License assigned for domain name will be valid for that domain and all it’s sub domains.

    Assigning Staging Domain

    You can also assign staging domain to your CU3ER PRO license on which you can test CU3ER without branding for 30 days during development phase.
    By assigning staging domain you can leave your CU3ER PRO license unassigned until you decide on which final domain website will be deployed or assign the final domain to it right away, but still be able to preview how CU3ER slider without branding will look like on your page under development area.

    Staging domain can't be assigned to LITE CU3ER license.
    Once LITE user upgrades to PRO he will be able to assign staging domain.

    To assign staging domain to license please do the followin:

    1. Click on "Staging Domain" button in license row

      CU3ER Account - Assign staging domain popup

    3. Enter your domain name in the input field. Make sure you have entered correct domain name because once assigned domain name can’t be changed, as staging domain can be assigned only once per PRO CU3ER license.
      Please note you need to enter just domain name (e.g. my-site.com) without ‘http://’ and ‘www’

    4. Click on the button "Proceed". If you've entered valid domain name, you will go to next step "Confirm domain name". You can confirm assigning of domain name by clicking button "Yes, assign staging domain now!" or go back to editing domain name by clicking "Edit domain name" button.
