You can associate a custom host name or domain name to the public IP address of a compute node associated with your Oracle Database Cloud Service environment.
To associate a custom host name to the public IP address of a compute node, contact the administrator of your DNS (Domain Name Service) and request a custom DNS record for the compute node’s public IP address. For example, if your domain is
example.com and you wanted to use
clouddb1 as the custom host name for a compute node, you would request a DNS record that associates
clouddb1.example.com to your compute node's public IP address.
To associate a custom domain name to the public IP address of a compute node:
Register your domain name through a third-party domain registration vendor, such as
Namecheap, and so on. For example,
Resolve your domain name to the IP address of the Database Cloud Service compute node, using the third-party domain registration vendor console. For more information, refer to the third-party domain registration documentation.
You can obtain the public IP address of a compute node by viewing details as described in Viewing Detailed Information for a Database Deployment.
