Healthcare Blocks virtual machines include a unique domain name that can be used for external connections and can be useful during development and testing phases. Ultimately, customers purchase an organizational domain name from a third-party domain name registrar (e.g. GoDaddy) and configure it to send network traffic to their Healthcare Blocks environment.

Viewing Domains

To see the domains currently configured in your Dokku-enabled virtual machine:

dokku domains:report

Configuring Domains

To associate a domain name that you own with your application:

dokku domains:add app-name www.mydomain.com

DNS Settings

In order for your Healthcare Blocks environment to be able to receive traffic using your personal domain name, you will need to create a DNS record in your domain name registrar's DNS service.

For environments without a load balancer, you'll create a CNAME record pointing to the healthcareblocks.com domain assigned to your virtual machine.

For environments with a load balancer, you'll create a CNAME record pointing to the load balancer's service address.
