Your own domain assigned to the IdoSell Booking showcase

Using your own domain makes it easier to find your place's website. Improve your place's positioning in search-engine results by using your own domain.

Technical domain vs your own domain

Every IdoSell Booking showcase always receives a technical domain. A technical domain is usually the code name of a showcase and is always in the following format: name.idosell.com. Such domains are used mainly to prepare showcases and for testing.

If you use only a technical domain, your new showcase will be available at e.g. clientXXXX.idosell.com/frontpage and will not be positioned in search engines. That is why we recommend that you register your own domain. As a result, you will obtain a secure address that will be a perfect advertisement for your accommodation facility. If you already have a website for your place, you can use the traffic from this website and redirect it to your new showcase. In addition, you will have a web address that is shorter and easier to remember for your customers, e.g. stable.com.

If you do not have your own domain

Register your domain with a company that provides such services, e.g OVH. We do not participate in registering domains nor do we cooperate with any company in this area. After you order your domains, please delegate them to our servers:

  • Primary dns: dns1.iai-system.com
  • Secondary dns: dns2.iai-system.com

If you already have a domain

If you already have a domain, you can assign an address to your showcase in three ways:

  • by delegating a domain to our DNS servers (complete delegation)
  • by redirecting a domain to the server IP address (incomplete delegation)
  • by redirecting a domain to a given web/URL address

Delegating a domain to our DNS servers

If you have purchased a domain (or domains), add it (or them) to the IdoSell Booking panel in the ADMINISTRACJA\Konfiguracja domen\Dodaj nową domenę (ADMINISTRATION\Domain configuration\Add new domain) section. If you have more than one domain, enter the domain that is considered the main domain. The main domain is the domain to which each showcase access is redirected to. This is relevant for the position of your accommodation facility in Google – all the websites that refer to your accommodation point to the main domain, which makes its rating higher. Options for selecting the main domain can be found in the ADMINISTRATION\Managing domains, SSL and system services\Select a main domain section.

Adding a domain to our DNS and redirecting it

After you add a domain to our DNS, please wait for the server settings to refresh. Next, go to the domain management website of the company from which you have purchased this domain, select the "Redirecting to external DNS servers" option, or any option with a similar name, and fill in the fields with the following:

  • Primary dns: dns1.iai-system.com
  • Secondary dns: dns2.iai-system.com

If the form contain fields for entering IP addresses, do not fill them in.

About 24-48 hours after redirecting your domain, you should be able to access your own showcase page by entering your domain in the browser address bar. If after this period of time you cannot open the showcase in your domain, please contact the company from which you purchased the domain to check whether the domain was properly delegated to our company DNS servers (Primary DNS: dns1.iai-system.com, Secondary DNS: dns2.iai-system.com). If it was, please report this problem to the IdoSell Booking support team by sending a message.

If you want to enable e-mail support for the domain added to your accommodation (eg. booking@yourdomain.com, customerserviceoffice@yourdomain.com), please refer to the guide for setting up an e-mail account in the Google application.

Redirecting a domain to the server IP address

In this case you should choose the incomplete delegation option, which means redirecting a domain to the server IP address with A record in DNS. The DNS server will remain at the current service provider.
Enter the full name of the domain (starting with „www”), select "No" and click "Next". The domain will be added to the list.

Note: Add the domain again, this time, however, without including „www” at the beginning. You only need to enter the domain name (without "www"), select "No" and click "Next". The domain will be added to the list.

Now you need to configure the provider-side delegation: home.com, name.com, ovh.com, etc.

NOTE: If you change the IP address, you also need to change the domain configuration.

URL Redirection

If you do not have your own domain, register one with a company that provides such services and perform URL redirection. To do so, copy the technical domain address from the IdoSell Booking admin panel. Next, set your domain at your service provider to be redirected to our server address by using a frame redirect with address masking.
