How to add your custom domain to your Bluemix app

When you want to deploy your app to the real world a mybluemix.net adress might not be the best you probably want your own domain added. Fortunately this is very simple to do with Bluemix.

your new domain will now show up as an option instead of mybluemix.net

There are several options too create a SSL cert but for test purposes I use https://www.startssl.com/ it’s a great way to create a free SSL cert or your can get a great price from Digicert that I use for all my professional certs
