Make a Custom Domain with a QR Code (White Label Feature)

Update:  June 13, 2024

QR TIGER’s dynamic QR code generator allows premium or enterprise customers to use their own custom domains for their generated QR codes. This feature is called QR code white labeling.

If a customer scans the QR code, they will see your custom domain instead of the default URL.

This advanced feature gives your QR code identity, which increases brand awareness. It also boosts QR code security and credibility, fostering scanner trust. More people will likely scan your QR codes.

Benefits of using your own domain

Branding 

 QR code white-labeling allows users to see your brand when they scan a QR code. This helps in your branding and marketing campaign, making it easier for users to visit your site.

Editable 

 Using a custom domain gives you full control over your QR codes. You can still redirect the URL of your domain to any other URL yourself. Just go over to your QR TIGER QR Code Generator dashboard and update it.


How to prepare your domain for whitelabel

Before activating the feature in your QR TIGER dashboard, you need to set up a subdomain that points to QR TIGER’s server via a CNAME record. 

Step 1: Log in to your domain’s Cpanel and go to the Zone/DNS editor.

Setup short domain

Step 2: Create a CNAME record for the subdomain with the value qr1.be

Hostgator Zone Editor

For example, if you nominate the subdomain qr.definitelyweddingandevents.com as your custom domain, go to the zone editor for the domain definitelyweddingandevents.com.  

    Important note: We automatically provision SSL for the subdomain. If you add your own SSL certificate, your QR code will not work.

    Your existing QR codes remain the same. Once you add your short domain, your new QR codes will have the domain.

    Also note that if you delete a sub-domain, the QR codes that use that sub-domain might stop working.

    Step 4: Set a default domain. Once done, make sure it has the green checkbox.

    Note that it may take up to 24 hours before all worldwide DNS servers are updated and for our system to recognize the changes.

    We add the SSL to the subdomain to make this work, so there is no need for you to setup SSL on your end. If you add your own SSL certificate, your short URL will not work.
