We have a app in place that uses sites.com these are the URL's that we are using


is there a way we can mask http://myAppURL.force.com with http://CustomSitesURL.com

any help will be great.

P.S we do not wish to use iframe in it.


I believe you can, I've not done it yet but if you have access to change the CNAME you should be able to.

I think these are the steps:

Register a Custom Domain: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=domain_mgmt_add.htm&language=en_US

Adding a Custom URL: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=custom_url_add.htm&language=en_US

This is specific to site.com but also may be helpful: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=siteforce_domains.htm&language=en

You can map your standard company URL to your Force.com Sites Domain Name with a 3rd-party domain name registrar. Use the Custom Web Address field to set the alias to your Force.com address. To enable a custom Web address, create a CNAME record with a registrar like Network Solutions or Go Daddy. The CNAME record that you provide to that registrar must be your Force.com domain name and not the site URL. For example, if you entered "mycompany" when registering your Force.com domain, the CNAME must be mycompany.force.com, not the full value of the site URL. If you have not registered this address with a registrar, entering a value in the Custom Web Address field has no effect.

Well this is how we solved it Go to domain manager (in our case godaddy) add a domain point the cname to http://myAppURL.force.com

for instance http://myAppURL.force.com points to login.domain.com

On salesforce Go to domain management and add this url there !

Now go to sites and the site you want to mask the url for

Click on the button "new custom URl" and click on the lookup for domain


came across this question about an year later. Just wanted to suggest that you can also use the Site.UrlRewriter interface to clean them up.

Hope that helps.
