To set a custom domain in Laravel, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Configure your web server (Apache or Nginx) to point to the public directory of your Laravel project. This involves updating your server's configuration file to specify the root directory for your domain.
  2. Update the APP_URL variable in your .env file in your Laravel project. Set this variable to your custom domain, for example:


APP_URL=http://www.yourcustomdomain.com

  1. Update the base URL in your config/app.php file. Find the 'url' key in the 'app' array and update the value to your custom domain:


'url' => env('APP_URL', 'http://www.yourcustomdomain.com'),

  1. If you are using Laravel Mix for asset compilation, update the mix('css/app.css') and mix('js/app.js') references in your blade templates to include your custom domain:

  1. Finally, deploy your changes to your server and test your custom domain to ensure that it is working correctly with your Laravel project.


By following these steps, you can successfully set a custom domain for your Laravel project.
