Defining a Custom Host Name or Domain Name for Database Cloud Service

Not Oracle Cloud Infrastructure This topic does not apply to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

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:

  1. Register your domain name through a third-party domain registration vendor, such as Register.com, Namecheap, and so on. For example, example.com.

  2. 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.
