How to redirect website to our own domain?

The 'root' of our account on Odoo SAAS is now: https://my-company.odoo.com and this is also the Homepage of the website on the Odoo system.

How can I link "http://www.my-domain.com" (or another subdomain of my domain) so that it lands on the Odoo Saas root of my account?

Thanks.

I am understanding, now (March 2015) that for a 1 or 2 Person setup, Odoo Hosting is free.  (Be sure to use the Admin user as one of the users and then change the name/login etc).

I am going to try my own VPS next.  It is quite nice that Odoo provides this as a service at least for testing.  Difficulties seem to be in adding "out of system" extensions and doing much tinkering yourself.  You can seemingly tinker with the XML in the database though.

Good first impression here.  Yes, would be nice to resolve to our own domain name, I agree about that.

The Karma system, too, is relatively awkward.  Took me 12 clicks to get logged in an to post this.

You need a paid subscription for that.

 

Can I use my own domain name?

Yes, we can set up your own domain name for Odoo Apps or Business packs (paid subscriptions only), e.g: www.mycompany.com. We can also manage email addresses.

I overlooked that.

SH*T. I am a 2 man company so I cannot even pay to have what I would call a very basic need for every business, i.e. beeing able to use its own domain name and its own email adresses. 

You can consider a vps and install Odoo v8 on it. Then point your domain to the vps.

Hello Frank, My advice is to discuss it directly with Odoo. They will inform you about how they manage this situation and how much it costs. I am still under the old contract and I had to update my DNS and they updated the web.url in the system. Good luck!

I agree that it's a "flaw" in odoo's offering. It would be nice to be able to pay for the feature, however you are getting free hosting from them so you can't complain too much.

Hi Stephen,

Untill a couple of months ago, Odoo's price was 12$ per user for ALL the modules. I would be glad to pay that now, even 12€ instead of 12$. Now, if you use all the modules they have, it will cost 120€ per user per month. Or 1.440€ per year. I find that rather  expensive for 'open source' software. I wish they would reconsider their business model for smaller companies. Just my 2 cts.

Frank

Hello,

The price before was 35€ per user for the complete system.

It's an incredible good offer, considering what you are receiving: a full ERP and unlimited and very high quality support.

The new price is not that bad if you only use a few modules for instance, many people only use webpage builder, e-commerce, sales and accounting. This would cost 36€ per month and user. I did a comparison with other tools out there and still odoo's offer is the best.
If you really need all the modules, then you probably have a business that can afford 120€ per month and user. And in that case, Odoo is still one of the cheapest offer on the market.

The fact that the software is "open source" does not mean that all services should be for free. You can download and install it on your own server, take care of all the updates yourself and you will not have to pay one cent to anybody. Just consider the time and expenses you have and you will soon realise that the price requested by odoo is very reasonable.

You may also check other offers ( check our webpage www.ybo-services.com ) with different calculations and other prices for support.
Good luck!

Hello Mario

Is it through the 12 € subscription or do I need a 99 € per month ?

Hi Vincent, As far as I can see, a 12€ subscription would be enough. But that might cost you more when you use more than one app. It is 12€ per user per app. So, if you have Web&e-Commerce, Billing&Accounting, Marketing, Purchase and HRM active, that would cost you 5 * 12€ = 60€ PER USER. And you wil have to pay for 3 users minimum. That means 150€ per month. That looks a bit expensive to me for just beeing able to use our own domain, don't you think?

Why not host your instance to Amazon Cloud? Free 750 hrs eveny month for the first year, and it's very easy to install your system.

With apache2, it is called a redirection (see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/rewrite/remapping.html or http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_alias.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL_redirection )

You should also read http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_proxy.html which is nicer (the reverse proxy).

A reverse proxy (or gateway), by contrast, appears to the client just like an ordinary web server. No special configuration on the client is necessary. The client makes ordinary requests for content in the name-space of the reverse proxy. The reverse proxy then decides where to send those requests, and returns the content as if it was itself the origin.

A typical usage of a reverse proxy is to provide Internet users access to a server that is behind a firewall. Reverse proxies can also be used to balance load among several back-end servers, or to provide caching for a slower back-end server. In addition, reverse proxies can be used simply to bring several servers into the same URL space.

A reverse proxy is activated using the ProxyPass directive or the [P] flag to the RewriteRule directive. It is not necessary to turn ProxyRequests on in order to configure a reverse proxy.

Just an example, assuming you need to fake www.my-domain.tld/opendoo to https://my-company.odoo.com :

# Reverse Proxy for Odoo
ProxyRequests Off
SSLProxyEngine on

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
</Proxy>

ProxyPass /opendoo https://my-company.odoo.com
ProxyPassReverse /opendoo https://my-company.odoo.com

Not tested but should work...

CNAME is not an option : it'll give the good IP address but the Odoo's server is probably full of vservers, so without the correct address (my-company.odoo.com) it will fail.

"How can I link "http://www.my-domain.com" (or another subdomain of my domain) so that it lands on the Odoo Saas root of my account?"

 

You can use a cname dns record. Have a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNAME_record

Hi Timo, I tried it with a CNAME record, but that seems to work only for our own domain. Cannot be used to point at other domains so the CNAMe record cannot be created when pointing to odoo.com . But I found a temporary solution by redirecting a folder/subdomain to our site at Odoo. When arriving there, the visitors will see https://our-account.odoo.com but at least we can send them to http:www.our-domain.com/subdir-to-redirect from our public website as we want the odoo website to be used for professional use only. Your CNAMe solution should have to be implemented by Odoo I guess. Thanks for your suggestion anyway. Another solution would be (like Mario suggested to me) to install Odoo on my own server off course. But then I would have to debug and update that instance myself constantly. And that is not what I want to do. Frank
