MiniOrange allows you to use a Custom Domain name of your choice. Usually, people want to give their users a consistent and integral user experience. When you start using miniOrange services, the public-facing URLs are kind of <your-domain>.xecurify.com/moas/login.
In miniOrange, you need to set an 'Organization Name' which will be unique to all the users. And we use this Organization name to create some important URLs, metadata, etc. Now, the end-users are used to only your domain and working around it. But when you set up miniOrange services and when they see the new domain, they will get confused. To avoid such a condition, we provide the 'Custom Domain' feature.
Suppose your miniOrange domain is yourdomain.xecurify.com, you can choose to keep it as login.yourdoamin.com or whatever you want! With this feature, we will keep your users on the same domain, even when they would start using the miniOrange services. This gives them a seamless and trustworthy experience that they have not left their main site and are still working around it.
MiniOrange custom domains are available with any paid subscription plan. If you want to manage the SSL/TLS certificates yourself, you will need a Premium Subscription Plan. For more information contact us at email@example.com
With the miniOrange-managed certificate approach, miniOrange uses Let’s Encrypt to get certificates for your domain. You don't have to worry anything about Certificate issuance and installation. MiniOrange will guide you in all the aspect.
When you already have a certificate:
If you already have a certificate with you and you wish to use it for the custom domain, you need to provide the following details corresponding to the certificate.
You simply have to send us the above-mentioned details (files), we will host it on our load balancers.
How to generate a certificate on your own (DIY):
If you don't have a certificate of your own, no need to worry, just follow these steps to obtain a certificate for your domain.
After getting your own certificate, you must provide us with the three components mentioned in previous section.
The next step is Adding CNAME record in the DNS settings. You need to point the host to a link provided by us.
With the self-managed certificate approach, you are completely responsible for handling the SSL certificates and setting up and managing a reverse proxy for content to be sent to miniOrange. MiniOrange does not negotiate SSL with the end user’s client, but with the proxy. The proxy, in turn, negotiates SSL with the end-user. The main aspect of this approach is the Configuration of a reverse proxy.
The reverse proxy server retrieves resources on behalf of your client from one or more servers. These resources are then returned to the client, appearing as if they originated from the proxy server itself. You can use a service such as Cloudflare, Azure CDN, or AWS Cloudfront and configure settings for your custom domain.
MiniOrange provides two kinds of IDP solution. First is Cloud and another one is On-Premise.
In Cloud IDP, if you want to set the Custom Domain Name, you can follow these steps.
For further process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In On-Premise IDP, if you want to set the Custom Domain Name, you can follow these steps.
MiniOrange provides different kinds of endpoints, URIs, metadata, etc. through which you can integrate the 3rd party Applications or Identity Providers into miniOrange and complete your use-case as per the need. We make use of <your-domain> to create such metadata.
Usually, we provide the main three such URLs based on the 'Organization Name', they look something like this:
|Login Page URL||https://<your-domain>.xecurify.com/moas/login|
|Registration Page URL||https://<your-domain>.xecurify.com/moas/idp/usersignup|
|Forgot Password Page URL||https://<your-domain>.xecurify.com/moas/idp/resetpassword|
But with Custom Domain, you will get something like:
|Login Page URL||https://<mycompany.domain-name.com>/moas/login|
|Registration Page URL||https://<mycompany.domain-name.com>/moas/idp/usersignup|
|Forgot Password Page URL||https://<mycompany.domain-name.com>/moas/idp/resetpassword|
