Using Domains Used In Another Vercel Account

If you have your own Vercel Account and would like to deploy projects under your Vercel Account, as well as use Typedream to serve your landing page, you can do the following:

Let's say you own the domain example.com, and want to run your project under app.example.com , and use Typedream for your landing page at example.com

Before you start

If you already connected example.com or any subdomain of example.com to Typedream, and is having trouble adding app.example.com to your Vercel Account:

  1. Remove your domain from Typedream > Site Settings > Custom Domain

  2. Ask our support team to fully disconnect the domain from Typedream's Vercel Account.

Part 1: Delegating www.example.com to Typedream

  1. Add app.example.com to your deployment in your Vercel Account. This will make example.com to be owned by your Vercel account.

  2. Delegate www.example.com to Typedream's Account: We will follow this procedure from Vercel https://vercel.com/changelog/self-serve-delegation-of-subdomains
    1. Ask our support team to add your domain to Typedream's Vercel Account so we can generate a TXT record for you
    2. We'll send the TXT record that you need to add, then you should go to your DNS provider and add that TXT record for your domain
  3. Once you've added the TXT record from step 2.2, go to Typedream > Site Settings > Custom Domain and enter www.example.com. This should now work.
  4. You can check that www.example.com is now showing your landing page

Part 2: Redirecting example.com to www.example.com

  1. Clone this project

  2. Replace www.example.com under vercel.json on line 3 and 4 to your own domain.

  3. Make a new deployment in your Vercel Account, and deploy this cloned repo.

  4. Go to the deployment settings > Domains > add example.com to this deployment.

  5. It will automatically redirect requests to example.com/* to www.example.com/*

  6. Confirm that example.com now redirects to www.example.com and is showing your Typedream landing page
