Domains

Go to the Domains menu to add your domains. There are 5 modes here.

Direct domain

Click the Create button. In the opened page, act according to the figure. ![](https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/125398461/236682821-4b721589-8adc-43e8-b90e-8c096aa27c6e.png) Be careful: > If you want the desired domain not to be displayed in the configurations; Enter a custom name in the Display Name field. > In this case, there is no need to complete the forced use of host field. This field is only used for CDN domains. > In the domain configuration display field from these settings, you can specify the configurations of which domains the users who view the user panel with this domain can view.

Only for subscription link

This is a bonus tip. You can choose a domain to use as subscription only domain. This way you can separate connections from subscription links and your link will never be blocked. Then your links can be updated all the time. ![](https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/125398461/236683456-2e99c6f2-ab23-4c54-a5cf-89e565472e8f.png) After connecting `Sub-only domain` to the `Connection domains`, you can go to the user page via this sub-only domain. You see the configs are connected to this domain. Tip: We recommend using direct domains as Sub-only domains because they are fast if your server's IP is clean. Moreover direct domains wont be locked if they are used as Sub-only links. Additionally you can use PHP sites as subscription links.

CDN domain

Click on the create button and follow the instructions on the page that opens. ![](https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/125398461/236682963-aa6bf603-7449-43f2-9639-436332043e2a.png) Pay attention: >If you want the desired domain not to be displayed in the configurations; Enter a custom name in the Display Name field. If you want the desired domain not to be displayed in the configurations; Enter a custom name in the Display Name field. In the forced to use host field , it is suggested to use a normal domain record (without proxy). In this way, panel settings and configurations remain constant. When changing a new clean IP, it is enough to update the desired DNS record with the new IP (for example, in Cloudflare). >If you need more information about how to find clean Cloudflare IPs, read [this article](/manager/wiki/Guide-for-finding-a-clean-Cloudflare-IP). >In the domain configuration display field , you can specify which domains users who view the user panel with this domain should see.

Automatic CDN IP Selector or AUTO_CDN_IP domain

Proxies

In this part of the panel, you can specify general and detailed settings for proxies and enable or disable each of them.

Other

#### Admin settings Here are the admin settings. * You can set the language of the admin page. #### Customizing user page In this section, you can set the page related to users. * You can enter the message related to the user support department. * If you need to provide a link for support, you can put it in the related field. * You can also enter your brand name in the related field. This title can be seen at the top right of the user page. * Finally, you can specify the language of the user page. #### General settings In this section, there are some general settings related to the panel. * You can determine how to update the server. * You can set IP version 6 to be disabled. * You can enable or disable the speed test for users, which enables them to test configurations and service quality. * Specify or change the address of the fake site. This site is used to deceive the filtering system and if this system opens your panel, it will be redirected to the defined fake site. In this way, by using this option, it becomes less possible to identify your panel. * You can enable or disable the firewall. By activating the firewall, the main service ports such as 80,443,22 remain active and other ports are disabled. #### Proxy settings In this section, you can make specific proxy settings. * Block domestic sites. By activating it, all traffic destined for sites inside Iran or sites that are on the ir domain; They are blocked through the server. This option is very effective for not identifying the server by the filtering system. He suggested that it should be activated. > It is also suggested to use lite.yml configuration to connect to proxies. If this configuration is activated on the app client, traffic related to Iranian sites will be sent directly to the user's device without going through a proxy, and only the proxy will be used for filtered sites. This is an optimal mode because the traffic is not sent to the server in vain. * V2Ray mode can be activated or deactivated. * Vmess can be enabled or disabled. * The shared password can be changed. This password is used for connections that do not calculate traffic volume. * You can choose browser fingerprint emulation from Chrome, Android, Safari and Firefox options. #### domain Fronting This option is used to simulate another website instead of your website in SNI. Therefore, the filtering system cannot detect packets whose main destination is your domain, but fakely pretends to be sent to another destination, and as a result, it can be bypassed. This option may not work on all networks. [more information](/manager/wiki/Guide-for-domain-fronting) * For this purpose, you can specify the desired fake website. * You can enable this option for HTTP protocol (no encryption). * You can enable this option for TLS protocol (with encryption). * Please note that this feature is disabled on Cloudflare, and you must use other CDNs to use it. #### Telegram proxy Telegram proxy is designed to be used inside the Telegram app to bypass Telegram filtering. * It is possible to activate or deactivate it. * You can define an advertising tag to be displayed in the user's Telegram chats. * A fake domain can be used to encapsulate packets and bypass filtering, which must be entered in the relevant field. * Telegram proxy model can also be selected. * You can choose different Telegram libraries. Note that only Python works correctly on all systems and others may have bugs. Be sure to test after the change. #### HTTP settings In this section, the HTTP protocol is enabled or disabled. Due to the lack of encryption, its activation is not recommended. * If activated, the port of this service can be specified. Port 80 exists by default and cannot be removed, but other ports can be added to it. * Commas can be used to add other ports. Also, you should only use cloudflare's http ports. For example, 80,8080. [More information about cloudflare ports](https://developers.cloudflare.com/fundamentals/get-started/reference/network-ports/) #### TLS settings In this section you can set TLS. It is possible to enable or disable the TLS protocol in this section. In addition, you can specify the ports used in this regard, port 443 cannot be changed, but you can add other Cloudflare HTTPS ports, which can be separated by commas. For example, 443,2053. [More information about cloudflare ports](https://developers.cloudflare.com/fundamentals/get-started/reference/network-ports/) #### Shadowsocks settings ShadowSax FakeTLS is a simple obfuscation method that encapsulates data in a TLS packet to fool the filter. * Here, one of the algorithms of this protocol called simple obfs can be activated, which is not recommended. * You can also set a fake domain to obfuscate packets by ShadowSocks #### ShadowTLS Settings A Proxy to expose real tls handshake to the firewall. It works like Trojan but It does not require signing certificate. the firewall will see real tls handshake with valid certificate that you choose. #### Advanced settings In this section, there are configurations that are needed by a few users and are designed for professional users. * It is possible to choose the type of panel update from the stable version and the latest version. * It is possible to connect to the central panel (multi server). After connecting to the encrypted panel, users can be defined in an integrated manner on the central panel and the amount of usage of all servers can be added cumulatively. * The hidden proxy path can be changed in this section. This route is used to hide connections from filtering * Telegram bot token settings are also located in this section, through which you can connect to a Telegram bot and report user account information. ### Very advanced settings In this section, you can set the proxy path. Screen Shot 1402-02-17 at 14 38 59 copy This is especially important when you use proxies with lower security (http and vmess). This is done automatically by the panel, but you can change it if you want #### WARP If you need to get some information related to enabling WARP on Hiddify, read [this link](/manager/wiki/How-to-activate-WARP-on-the-Hiddify-panel). #### Reality For view more information about this protocol, please view [this article](/manager/wiki/How-to-use-Reality-on-Hiddify).

Backup
