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

Most dynamic QR code generators available online use their own link shortener. 

This means, if a user scans the QR code, they might often see first the domain of the QR code software that he is using.

With QR TIGER QR code generator, you can choose to add your own domain and use the software as your own known as white labeling. 

There are many different benefits to using your own domain:

A. Branding – QR code white labeling allow users can see your brand when they scan a QR code, this helps in your branding and marketing campaign and it’s much easier for users to click on the URL.

B. Editable – 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

Step 1: First, go to the service center or Cpanel of “the hosting of your domain” ( =where you bought your domain name)  

Step 2: Create a sub-domain such as “qr.yourdomain.tld”  

(.tld stands for your domain extension as .com, .org, .net, .fr, .cn, ….. ) so make sure to put the correct extension of your domain. Example: qr.giftlips.com

We automatically setup SSL for the subdomain, so you don’t need to set it up on your end. If you add your own SSL certificate, your short URL will not work. 

Step 3: Update the DNS settings of this sub-domain. Set the type to “CNAME” and place “qr1.be” in the CNAME value. 

Or add a new CNAME record and delete the old A record.
