New feature: Custom domains in Public URLs 🌐

Boost branding and create more professional look of your Public URLs

  • Add up to 2 custom domains
  • Public URLs on a custom domain never expire
  • Custom domain setup process takes 3 min
  • Read more in Docs
Public URLs improvements
  • Limit increase: we've increased the limit of Public URLs you can create from 3 to 5. More flexibility means more simultaneous live previews, making it easier to manage multiple aspects of your projects.
  • Extended persistence: we understand the importance of longevity; thus, inactive Public URLs now persist for up to 5 days, up from the previous 1 day. This increase allows for more durable testing and sharing periods, giving your stakeholders more time to review and interact with your work.
Other improvements
  • Connection tester: introducing a connection tester tool when adding a new domain. This addition checks if your target server is reachable, saving you time and eliminating the guesswork in troubleshooting connectivity issues.
  • Better error messages: now, errors related to Public URLs, such as expiry notices or connectivity issues, are explicitly displayed inside its dropdown menu.

We're committed to making LocalCan the best tool for developers looking to share their local projects with the world. These updates are part of our ongoing efforts to respond to your feedback and improve your experience.
