Hi, thanks for choosing Back4App! :)
Why is this article relevant?
It's relevant because with this change, the requests' latency will be lower than the requests that go through the "default" URL.
There is only one step that you should follow after this acquisition, which is changing the serverURL from "https://parseapi.back4app.com/" to the subdomain that you must create at Server Settings > Web hosting > Settings, as you can see below the screenshots:
1. Go to Server Settings and click on "Settings" of this card:
2. This section will appear, you must activate the Back4app Hosting:
3. Type a subdomain, you can write anything and click on "Save":
DONE! Your subdomain has been created! :)
Now, the next step is updating your initialization code. On this example, my subdomain is "https://samplehosting.back4app.io/" and I'm gonna change the serverURL in my Android project:
I went to the "strings.xml" and changed that from:
Last but not least, release a new version of your app appointed to this new URL.
NOTE: If you didn't acquire a Dedicated Instance, you can also change the serverURL to your subdomain, but there's not any effect on the requests' latency.
