CNAME is a type of DNS record used to establish an alias relationship between two domain names. CNAME stands for "Canonical Name."

Following the steps in the image below, you can see how to create a DNS record showing the website content.

DNS Records example in

  1. Select "CNAME" as the type of record from the list.
  2. Name: (write the name of your domain, for example, "darkwebmonitor").
  3. Value: In this case, you must write the point
  4. TTL (for example, select 1 hour)

After obtaining the DNS record, follow the steps below on the Insecureweb platform:

  1. Access the profile menu and select the "Whitelabel" option.
  2. Fill out all the information in the different sections of the "Whitelabel" section.
  3. In the "Configure your domain" section, you should insert the complete subdomain that you obtained as a result of the DNS record. Following the example in this tutorial, you would write "". Click on "Save".

Note: Be very careful when writing the subdomain, make sure to write it exactly as it appears in the DNS record.

Remember to wait the corresponding time for the DNS to cache the alias and have the site ready with its completed whitelabel.
