Get Started

Linking your developments to public domains and subdomains can be a difficult, error-ridden and slow process. Here's how you can fix this with now, step by step:

STEP 1
Point Your Domains to Our Nameservers
If you buy the domains with us, this step is unnecessary.

STEP 2
Alias Your Deployments GO TO DOCS

When you deploy and subsequently run now alias we:

  • Automatically configure your DNS records.
    Don't worry about figuring out ALIAS or CNAME records.
    Works for naked domains (i.e.: yourdomain.com without www)
  • Intelligently redirect traffic without dropping any requests
    If you change the underlying alias of a domain, you don't incur in any downtime.
  • Provision SSL certificates with Let's Encrypt on the fly.
    We serve all your content over encrypted HTTP/2 with only modern ciphers.

Let's say you want to deploy a Node.js app. First, you would deploy with

▲ now

That will give you a URL to your new deployment (or list with now ls). Then run:

▲ now alias <deployment> <target domain>

And you're set! now alias will verify the ownership of your domain and automatically configure it.

NOTE: If you are not using zeit.world, you can still point specific hosts to alias.zeit.co via ALIAS or CNAME manually.

Benchmarks

We wrote a series of benchmarks against the legacy [city].zeit.world and deployed them to 12 major locations around the world. The result? Up to 28x faster DNS lookup performance.
