This topic describes how to create and verify a domain alias for an Alibaba Cloud account. A domain alias is an alias of your default domain name. After you create and verify a domain alias, Resource Access Management (RAM) users of the Alibaba Cloud account can use this domain alias to log on to the RAM console.

Prerequisites

You own a domain name that is publicly resolvable.

Procedure

  1. Create a domain alias in the RAM console.
    1. Log on to the RAM console by using your Alibaba Cloud account.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Identities > Settings.
    3. On the Settings page, click the Advanced tab.
    4. In the Domain Alias section, click Create Domain Alias.
    5. In the Create Domain Alias panel, specify Domain Name and click OK.
    6. Copy the verification code.
  2. Add a TXT record in the system of your DNS service provider.
  3. Log on to the RAM console to verify the ownership of the domain name.
    1. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Identities > Settings.
    2. In the Domain Alias section of the Advanced tab, click Domain Ownership Verification.
    3. In the Verify Domain Ownership message, view the verification result and click OK.

What to do next

The RAM users of your Alibaba Cloud account can use the default domain name to log on to the RAM console. The logon name of a RAM user follows the format of <UserName>@<DomainAlias>. For more information, see Log on to the console as a RAM user.
