You will normally have to create a CNAME dns record for the domain you want to use and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to inform them.
To do this though, you need a paid subscription. From 'Odoo Pricing' page:
Can I use my own domain name?
Yes, we can set up your own domain name for Odoo Standard or Business (paid subscriptions only), e.g: www.mycompany.com. We can also manage email addresses.
I tried loading the SAAS URL into an iframe by uploading an html file to the location of the Original domain. this typically works for other solutions.
Having to contact ODOO support is not a feasible option for small startups (1 or 2 users) looking to explore the full functionality of ODOO as this would mean a huge increase of the monthly cost from 0 to 295 EUR a month by having to switch from a free to a paid subscription.
Launching an online company without a professional looking URL at an affordable price scares potential (future paying) customers away right now I'm afraid.
Maybe ODOO can offer the option to transfer the domain name and host it on their end at market competitive prices similar to what the original hosting provider would otherwise charge for hosting the domain.
<iframe name='FRAME1' src='http://www.yahoo.com' width='100%' height='100%' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0' scrolling='auto' frameborder='0'>
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
You should ask Odoo to:
Let you know the IP associated with your instance so that you can create an A record at your domain DNS control panel
Create a new virtual host for your domain
Redirect 301 their subdomain (xxx.odoo.com) to your private domain so that you will not have duplicate content on both xxx.odoo.com and yourdomain.com.
I have read about configuring a Reverse Proxy using apache or nginx. This is the route when you are hosting openErp on your own box, but want have a convenient way for the customer to access the site without entering a port number. Theoretically this technic should also work when using the SaaS product from openErp SA.
