Setup Handshake Domain Names Using Cloudways (Fast + Easy + Affordable)

So a quick guide here – many ask how we setup handshake.mercenary on Handshake HNS.


After a lot of trial and error with other systems – Cloudways has been our best friend. Using them for a couple years now actually – wish we had tested using them for our Handshake sites.

They basically let you add it as a domain and cause no issues at all, no warnings, no email alerts, it just works.

You can point it to an A record (the IP address)
To a CNAME (but this is using DNS – so not as preferred as the IP address above).
