Domini personalizzati

Miraheze permette di scegliere un dominio personalizzato per la wiki nel momento in cui viene fatta la richiesta. Anziché usare (un sottodominio di, è possibile usare un dominio personalizzato (per esempio,, ecc.). Per informazioni è possibile leggere la guida di seguito.


Configurare un dominio personalizzato è facile seguendo 4 tappe:

1. Ottieni un dominio.

  • Per impostare un dominio personalizzato, dovrai innanzitutto ottenere un dominio. Ci sono molti registrar affidabili come Namecheap dove puoi acquistare un dominio. Non vuoi pagare per un dominio? Fai clic qui per servizi di dominio gratuiti.

2. Segnalalo a Miraheze.

  • Una volta che hai ottenuto un dominio, dovrai indirizzarlo a Miraheze. Puoi indirizzare il nomeserver a Miraheze o impostare un record CNAME per il sottodominio a cui vuoi che la tua wiki faccia riferimento a

Pointing the nameservers to Miraheze? Set the nameservers to "" and "" (contact your domain registrar if you don't know how to do this).

Pointing a subdomain to Miraheze? Add a CNAME record on the subdomain you want (e.g., "wiki."), and point it to "";


If you are using Cloudflare as your DNS provider, you'll need to make sure some settings aren't set or the subdomain won't work. Click here to learn more.

What should I choose?

Each option has different pros and cons:

If you do choose to point the nameservers to us, we can handle all things related to DNS without needing your intervention. However, if you choose to do this, you'll need to ask us to create new DNS records every time you need to add a new one. If you change your nameservers and have records set already (e.g., you have www. pointing to your website), you'll need to ask us to recreate them or else your subdomains will be unreachable once you change the nameservers. If you don't plan to make frequent changes to the DNS records or are fine with us handling it for you, choose this.

  • If you choose to simply point a subdomain to Miraheze, you'll have complete control of your DNS records, but you'll need to manually set records yourself with your DNS provider.


Choose who will provide an SSL certificate.

  • For your safety, Miraheze uses SSL/TLS to encrypt the connections from our servers to your browser to make sure no one intercepts your connection. For this reason, we require all custom domains to have an SSL certificate. You can either provide us your own SSL certificate (you would have to pay for it) or let us handle it completely (for free, via Let's Encrypt). This is the easier and Miraheze-recommended option. If you have no idea what SSL means or is, select the Let's Encrypt option.

If you choose to let us handle it: We can generate an SSL certificate (using Let's Encrypt) ourselves and even renew it automatically for the subdomain you chose without needing any additional intervention from your part, your work is done!

If you have chosen your own SSL certificate: After you make your custom domain request, a system administrator who handles CSR requests will generate a CSR & private key (for use on our own servers), and the requested CSR will be emailed to you. You use this CSR to request your SSL certificate vendor to generate an SSL certificate with the CSR we gave you. You will need to email us the generated SSL certificate when this is done. If all of these steps are done, we will add the custom domain to your wiki, and we will notify you when this all is done.


Make the request!

  • Once you've done the steps above and have chosen who will provide the SSL certificate, make the request via RequestSSL. In the form, all you need to do is provide your wiki's current subdomain, your desired domain, and whether or not you'll use Let's Encrypt (us handling the SSL) or if you'll provide an SSL certificate yourself.

Note for CloudFlare users

CloudFlare users must turn off CloudFlare's DDoS/Origin IP protection system/workers. This is not negotiable. With it enabled, Miraheze cannot process SSL certificate requests, and it creates problems with our internal systems, including security issues.

Our IPs are already public, so we do not need Origin IP protection, and we have DDoS protection through our network vendor.

Follow the steps to find out how to disable Cloudflare DDoS/Origin IP protection system (assuming you're using the dashboard).

  1. Go to
  2. Click your domain in the dashboard.
  3. Go to "DNS".

Add CNAME entry to The cloud with an arrow must be grey. If it is yellow, click it to make it grey.

  1. Click "Add Record". The result has to look like the last image.

If you are done with this, continue back on the steps above.

 Note: Not following the rules above will result in your custom domain being removed immediately and further action being taken if necessary. In case of any doubt, feel free to contact us at or ask on the Phorge task you create.

What services can I use to get a free domain?

If you don't wish to pay for a domain of your own, there are services that offer free domains and subdomains which you can use instead. Remember that all Miraheze wikis automatically get a free subdomain on and search engine ranking benefits from Miraheze's domain authority.

Free (sub)domain providers:

FreeDNS example

Sign up with FreeDNS and log in. On the left side, click 'Registry' to select a domain (e.g., This will take you to a small form to fill in. Please avoid using a domain, as it is impossible to generate a Let's Encrypt certificate for these. Add a subdomain (keep trying until you find an available one, e.g., mario). Select 'CNAME' for the type. In the destination field, enter, solve the captcha, and click the save button.

Then follow the above step 4. Make the request!.

Can I change the URL structure?

Miraheze is configured not to serve pages from the domain root. For example, if your wiki is and its main page is called "Welcome", then the URL will not be but instead (note the /wiki/ piece). Likewise, even if you use a custom domain, Miraheze will still serve pages with this URL structure. When users visit pages on the root (e.g., without the /wiki/), they'll be greeted by a page asking them if they meant to go to a page on the /wiki/ subdirectory and will provide them a link.

What SSL certificate authorities do you accept?

Miraheze accepts most SSL certificate authority that are accepted by browsers such as Mozilla Firefox. However, we do not accept WoSign certs anymore.
