Replit Name tag
TheBest156 (43)

So I got the newsletter like I do weekly - monthly, it says this "In part of our series in The Wonderful World of Clusters, we discuss why we created our own DNS server. DNS servers are used to inform computers where they can find resources on a network. This is difficult because Replit has a lot of different resources across our website, and for each user. The URL syntax <name>.<user>.repl.co is our way to making repls navigable on the web, but that’s no easy task. For more information on how our DNS works, check out our blog post." Can someone help me get custom dns with this line he showed me?

I don't think you know what you are talking about.
Do you mean getting a custom domain? Like hello.com?
