layout: user-doc title: Fully Qualified Domain Name FQDN —

The fqdn component is of core importance and part of most platforms since it defines the fully qualified domain that configuration used to access the platform.

You can configure the fqdn component as part of your platform in design phase and specific to an environment in the transition phase.

Once your assembly is deployed in an environment you can access the fqdn component in operation to see all generated values to access your running assembly in a specific environment using a cloud-specific domain name or the global domain name.
