Cannot subdomain our Dgraph Cloud URL

Why can’t I put a cname dns entry pointing to my Dgraph Cloud URL?

The DNS entry is populating, but I am getting a too many redirects error.

Has anyone been able to cname their cloud url?


We’ve tried doing this unsuccessfully as well, and would really appreciate a solution, especially for support with automated persisted queries through a CDN: Automatic persisted queries - Apollo Server - Apollo GraphQL Docs

That said, we’ve been able to accomplish this via an origin redirect in a Cloudflare Worker … (and even caching for HTTP post queries)

Even still, I would still prefer the ability to directly do custom CNAMEs if that is possible, or if Dgraph Cloud can formally support that. I would also be fine if that’s a premium feature that requires an enterprise plan.

Good to know it was not just me. Thanks!

I’m don’t believe this feature was ever built into Dgraph cloud.

Even if you cname a custom domain to the cloud domain, Dgraph cloud only offers a certain set of whitelisted SSL certificates, so things will not work. That said, I’ve never seen a redirect loop (unless it’s a weirdness of the load balancer seeing a domain it doesn’t recognise). Fronting DG Cloud with a CDN Is probably your best work around atm.

@NClevenger Dgraph does support APQ btw. You can just use APQ as it is, and use a free CF domain to forward requests to Dgraph. Also, you can use @cacheControl to set a max-age,, so that the APQ get query gets cached. Combine these two, and you can save the big bucks with a cheap plan from CloudFlare! (or fastly, because CF will only allow you to set max-age to 24h except on a higher tier plan).
