Map different domains to individual spaces?

Scott Rossell Jul 31, 2012

My apologies if this is covered somewhere already (surely it must be). I searched and experimented and failed miserably. I have three completely different domains that are pointed to the Confluence server IP. I would like to map different domain names to specific spaces. Is this possible? Thank you so much. :@)

Just to add my voice - we would really like this feature as well.

On a single Confluence instance we're hosting completely different content - our internal documentation, external API documentation and end user help for our systems. Today we have these on subdomains like help.XXX.dk, documentation.XXX.dk and so forth. We'd really like to be able to keep these domains to make it simple for users to remember the adresses, and seeing that "Help" users have no use for the "Api" documentation and vice versa.

I suppose we could install multiple Confluence instances, but that kinda ruins the whole point of running a single integrated wiki.

Hello Scott,

Please let me know if my reasoning of your request is correct:

Let's say you have http://confluence_url/dashboard.action as your domain, so for a set of spaces you want a different domain like http://confluence_url2/spacekey/Home for space A and http://confluence_url3/spacekey/Home for space B. Is that correct?

If so, I'm afraid that Confluence does not provide this functionality, you may be able to achieve that by using a web proxy like Apache (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Running+Confluence+behind+Apache).

This is not recommended as many Confluence functionality might break. As a rule of thumb, Confluence should only be configured with a single base URL. This is configured under Confluence Admin > General Configuration. This base URL must match the URL that you use to access Confluence via the browser.
