Display reboom content under your own domain

Making a DNS redirection allows you to point a subdomain to an external domain where you can host your content. This means you can use a third-party service to host your content while still having a custom subdomain and maintaining control over your main domain.

Why having content on your own domain is better

Having content on your own website is better for SEO than hosting it elsewhere, even if you cannot edit the content, because it helps establish your website as a reputable and authoritative source of information. When you host content on a third-party platform, that platform receives the majority of the SEO benefits and traffic from that content. In contrast, when you host the content on your own website, you can benefit from improved search engine rankings and increased traffic to your website.

Due to this reason, reboom does not permit crawlers to access reboom domains. Therefore, you have two options: export the data to your own content management system or subscribe to our Smart Hosting solution and configure your DNS records as explained below.

How does redirection with DNS work

DNS redirection works by pointing a domain name to a different IP address or server. When a user types in a URL or clicks on a link, their device sends a request to a DNS server to look up the IP address associated with the domain name. The DNS server then sends the user's device to the IP address associated with the domain name, which serves up the website's content. With DNS redirection, website owners can point their domain names to different servers or IP addresses, allowing them to host their content on different platforms while still maintaining their own domain name and brand identity.

Configuring DNS and SSL can help redirect a subdomain to content hosted on another server in the following ways:

DNS Configuration: The Domain Name System (DNS) is responsible for translating domain names into IP addresses. By configuring the DNS records of a domain, you can point the subdomain to the IP address of the server hosting the content you want to redirect to.

For example, if you want to redirect the subdomain "blog.example.com" to a different server, you can create a DNS record for the subdomain that points to the IP address of the server where the blog content is hosted. This can be done by adding a DNS A record or CNAME record to the DNS zone file of the domain.
