ILC can handle requests from multiple domains so that you don't need to roll out individual instances of the ILC for every domain.

Add a new domain name⚓︎

  1. Open the ILC Registry (http://localhost:4001/ by default).
  2. In the sidebar, choose Router domains. This page stores a list of all domains that are used within the ILC instance.
  3. In the top right corner, click + Create.
  4. On the new page, in the Domain name field, type your domain name. For example,

    Provide only domain name, without a protocol

    ILC uses a strict comparison of a domain name, which means if you specify, sub-domains like won't work. To include sub-domains, you need to specify or any other sub-domain that you are going to work with.

  5. In the Template of 500 error field, choose the default 500 template.

    To test this route immediately, navigate to the using your web browser.

    It is recommended to create a personal template to handle 500 errors for each of your domains.

Add error handler⚓︎

  1. In the sidebar, choose Routes.
  2. In the top-left corner, enable the Show special toggle to see a list of special routes.

    The 404 route without a specified domain is used as a fallback for all domains and cannot be deleted.

    You can use this route as a default for 404 errors for your domains.

  3. In the top right corner, click + Create special route.

    In the general tab:

    1. In the Special role dropdown, select 404.
    2. In the Domain dropdown, select your domain.

Add a new route⚓︎

  1. In the top-left corner, disable the Show special toggle to see a list of simple routes.

    You can use the Domain dropdown list to the right of the Show special toggle to filter the list of domains that allows you to work only with routes for a specific domain name.

  2. In the top right corner, click + Create.

  3. On the new page, in the Domain field, type the domain name that you want to use for the new route.

    If you need to move already existing routes under a newly created domain, modify the Domain field in their preferences.

  4. Set other options according to your needs and click Save.

  5. Navigate to the newly created route to check if everything works as expected.

Additional information⚓︎

  • ILC detects a domain from the request.hostname of Fastify and checks whether this hostname is listed in the Router domains.
  • Each registered domain in the Router domains has its own set of routes that do not overlap.
  • For routes, the domain is optional. If the request goes from the domain that is not listed in the Router domains, the routes for the request will stay unassigned.
