Link Your Commerce Applications to a Domain

This topic applies to

Applies to

SuiteCommerce | SuiteCommerce Advanced

 

After you have installed SuiteCommerce or SuiteCommerce Advanced into your NetSuite account, you must link your application to a domain before you can view your site. We recommend linking to a development domain for testing at first. Later, when you are satisfied with your web store, you can follow the same procedures listed here to link to a production domain.

Important

These procedures assume that you have already acquired and set up one or more domains for your web store. If you have not yet acquired a domain and set it up for NetSuite, see Domains. After your domain is ready, return to this topic to set up your web store.


To complete your application installation, follow the procedures described in this topic to:

  • Link an application to a development domain.

  • Deploy the SuiteScript 2.0 (SS2) application to the domain and site.

To link your application to your development domain:

This procedure is the first step when linking your application to a domain.

Note

The development domain is the domain used by developers before your site goes live. In the early stages of site set up, the best practice is to link your application to this development domain to ensure everything is set up correctly. When you are ready to go live with your web store, follow this same procedure to link the application to your production domain.


  1. In NetSuite, go to Setup > SuiteCommerce Advanced > SSP Applications.

  2. Click View next to the correct application.

    Implementation

    Application Name

    SuiteCommerce

    SuiteCommerce Standard

    SuiteCommerce Advanced

    SuiteCommerce Advanced - Dev xxxx

    (xxxx equals the SCA version being installed)

  3. Click Link to Domain to link touch points to your domain.

    Important

    Touch points configured for a domain override the touch points configured for the related web site. To take advantage of themes and extensions, you must link the SSP to a domain. However, you must also define touch points on the web site record. Domain-only touch point configuration is not supported. See Link a Website or Domain to an SSP Application and Select Supported Touch Points for details.


    You are now ready to deploy the SuiteScript 2.0 (SS2) application to your shopping and checkout domains.

To deploy the SuiteScript 2.0 (SS2) application:

The next step in setting up your Commerce web store is to deploy the SS2 SSP Application to a domain and a site in NetSuite. How you deploy the SS2 application depends on your implementation and Shopping/Checkout domain setup. For more details on these domains, see Domain Options for Web Stores.

Note

The SS2 SSP Application is included with SuiteCommerce and SuiteComemrce Advanced applications (2019.1 and later). This SSP Application is required to manage scripting written in SuiteScript 2.0. For an advanced description of SSP Applications written for SuiteScript 2.0, see SuiteScript 2.0 SSP Applications. If you are implementing the 2018.2 release of SCA or earlier, you can disregard this step.


  1. In NetSuite, go to Setup > SuiteCommerce Advanced > SSP Applications.

  2. Click View next to the correct SS2 application.

    Implementation

    Application Name

    SuiteCommerce

    SuiteCommerce SS2

    SuiteCommerce Advanced 2019.1 and later

    SuiteCommerce Advanced - Dev xxxx SS2

    (xxxx equals the SCA version being installed)

  3. If your Commerce web store uses a single, secure domain for shopping and checkout:

    1. In the SSP Application record, click Deploy to Domain.

    2. In the Domain field, select the domain for your site.

    3. Click Save.

  4. If your Commerce web store uses two separate domains for shopping and checkout:

    1. In the SSP Application record, click Deploy to Site.

    2. In the Deploy to All Shopping Domains on Site field, select the site associated with your shopping domain.

    3. In the Deploy to Checkout Domain on Site field, select the site associated with your checkout domain.

Now that your applications are installed and properly linked to a domain, you are ready to Set Up Web Site Record.
