STEP 3: Email firstname.lastname@example.org after you configure your DNS records so that we can set up SSL certificates for your custom domain.
P.S: Setting up a custom domain in the Master organization will trigger this for other organizations as well. You can set up separate custom domains for other organizations to avoid this.
Update #2: Using a custom URL
Now, your QR code campaign can have a completely personalized URL. So, for instance, if you are running a scavenger hunt contest, you URL can read qr.mcmickey.com/scavenger-hunt
Here’s how to do it. Once you start creating your QR code, you will find the ‘Customize’ tab.
Scroll all the way down under the ‘Customize’ tab and you will find the option ‘URL’
Toggle the Auto-generation option and type the preferred URL
You’re all set!
Custom domain and custom URL for QR code campaigns: Why do you need it?
Not only can a custom domain and URL help you target the right audience and reinforce your branding, but this also prevents anyone from hacking your QR code campaigns.
Beaconstac’s QR Code Solution provides a robust framework and enterprise-class security and adding this feature makes it impossible for any malicious site to dupe your customers.
Once you set up your custom domain let’s say qr.mcmickey.com, no one else will be able to duplicate this. Role-based access will prevent any unauthorized changes to your campaign and your customers will know that they can safely access your QR code campaign.
Another check that anyone who scans QR code must always do is check the SSL certificate of the site. Always ensure that the site’s URL is in HTTPS format.
