Each new site you launch on DDEV-Live is given a default url. The url follows the format of
https://preview-myorg-mysite.sites.ddev.live where myorg and mysite are replaced with your organization name and the site name you used when creating the site. The preview url is always visible in SITE INFO from
ddev-live describe site and as the PREVIEWURL from
ddev-live list sites.
You can assign additional hostnames to a site with the
ddev-live config hostname command. Once the DNS resolves for new hostnames we will make a request to Let's Encrypt for a ssl certificate on your behalf. Host information is stored in HOSTS from
Add a Hostname¶

example.com to a site named
mysite in the

In order for your hostname to resolve you will need to update an A record for apex domains and a CNAME for sub domains like www. Your A records should use the ip address
188.8.131.52 if a CNAME is not available. All other records should use a CNAME of
ingress1.ddev.live. Please consult your DNS providers documentation for additional instructions.
