How do I configure a domain name?
To set up your own domain, you do not need an IT specialist. Just follow the instructions below and complete
the entire configuration:
- Configuring an [ALIAS] or [ANAME]
record with your Host provider If your Host provider supports [ALIAS] records (such as with DNSimple) or
[ANAME] records (such as with DNS Made Easy), you may choose to create an [ALIAS] or [ANAME] record to
(Note: Some Host providers allow an apex domain configured with
an ALIAS record to point to some other domain name.)
confirm that your [ALIAS] or [ANAME] record has been set correctly, use the dig command:
example.com +nostats +nocomments +nocmd example.com. 3600 IN A 199.27.XX.XXX
IP address shown here should match the final IP address shown by dig dig.codeswholesale.com.
a www subdomain If you configure both an apex domain (e.g. my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com) and a matching
www subdomain (e.g. www.my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com), CodesWholesale.com servers will automatically
create redirects between the two.
- For example: If your
[CNAME] file contains my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com, then www.my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com will
redirect to my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com.
- If your
[CNAME] file contains www.my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com, then my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com will
redirect to www.my-whitelabel.codeswholesale.com.
- You can
use a custom subdomain other than www together with a custom apex domain via domain redirection (sometimes
called “domain forwarding”).
Note, however, that this will only work for User and Organization
Pages-not for Project Pages.

If any problems are reported to us, you will be notified about them by email. Then you have 48 hours to give
us a response. If you fail to respond within the time mentioned, we will refund your customers.

Can I sell games prior to their release date?
No, you cannot sell activation codes ahead of their release date. This option is only reserved for a
selected group of sellers who can place activation codes as Deals before the actual release date. If you
wish to learn more, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have uploaded my activation keys but few people are buying. What can I do?
It may mean that your selling price is too high. In this case you can try lowering the price to see if the
sales go up. Overall, CodesWholesale algorithms give priority to offers with the lowest price until they run
out of stock. Only then does the system deliver the game keys from the next best offer.
