Define Domain Name in Salesforce

Add a subdomain to your Salesforce org URL with the My Domain Salesforce feature. Having a subdomain lets you highlight your brand and makes your org more secure. A subdomain is convenient and allows you to personalize your login page.

Using My Domain, you define a subdomain that’s part of your Salesforce domain. For example, developer is a subdomain of the salesforce.com domain. With a subdomain, you replace the URL that Salesforce assigned you, like

https://na30.salesforce.com

with your chosen name, like

https://somethingcool.my.salesforce.com

A subdomain is also referred to as a custom domain. However, a custom domain has a specific meaning for Salesforce Communities.

A subdomain name helps you better manage login and authentication for your org in several key ways. You can:

  • Highlight your business identity with your unique domain URL
  • Brand your login screen and customize right-frame content
  • Block or redirect page requests that don’t use the new domain name
  • Work in multiple Salesforce orgs at the same time
  • Set custom login policy to determine how users are authenticated
  • Let users log in using a social account, like Google and Facebook, from the login page
  • Allow users to log in once to access external services

My Domain is required before you can use these Salesforce features:

  • Single sign-on (SSO) with external identity providers
  • Social sign-on with authentication providers, such as Google and Facebook
  • Lightning components in Lightning component tabs, Lightning Pages, the Lightning App Builder, or standalone apps

Your domain name uses standard URL format, including:

  • Protocol: https://
  • Subdomain prefix: your brand or term
  • Domain: salesforce.com

Your name can include up to 40 letters, numbers, and hyphens. You can’t start the subdomain name with root, status, or a hyphen.You have the chance to try out names and check availability before you commit to your domain name.

Salesforce is enabled as an identity provider when a domain is created. After your domain is deployed, you can add or change identity providers and increase security for your org by customizing your domain’s login policy.

Steps:

  1. From Setup, enter My Domain in the Quick Find/Search box, then select My Domain.
  2. Enter the subdomain name you want to use within the sample URL. For example, if a company called Universal Containers uses the subdomain universal containers, the company’s login URL is

    https://universalcontainers.my.salesforce.com/

     Your name can include up to 40 letters, numbers, and hyphens.

You can’t use these reserved words for subdomains:

  • www
  • salesforce
  • heroku

You can’t start the domain name with:

  • root
  • status
  • a hyphen (-)
  1. Click Check Availability. If your name is already taken, choose a different one.
  2. Click Register Domain.
  3. You receive an email when your domain name is ready for testing. It can take a few minutes.

The new subdomain is available to your users after you test and deploy it.
