Ability to add vanity URLs
It would be great to have the ability to create something like a CNAME entry in our DNS host that gives us the ability to use a subdomain that links to a Keyoxide profile.
Let's be honest, no one is going to remember their fingerprint, so some kind of vanity URL would be helpful.
Sounds great. So what is the issue here? Need for a guide? Because you already did this, I saw. My point being: what needs to happen to close this issue? Is Keyoxide currently impeding in any way?

I have remembered the first four characters, so yes, we can agree on that :)
Sorry I wasn't very clear in my original post (not like me, I know! 😄)
So, I've created a redirect to a sub-domain, yep that was fine. What I mean is a way of doing this from within Keyoxide. So the ability to add a CNAME in your host that points to the Keyoxide profile and KeyOxide issues a LE certificate against that sub-domain so it all works.
I'm thinking like how Netlify does it - the create
<subdomain>.netlify.app for websites hosted with them, then you setup a CNAME that points to it. They issue the LE cert and the URL works.
Hope that makes sense?
What @kevq suggests if what keys.openpgp.org does for WKD-as-a-Service.
But I've got a question: wouldn't a simple redirect from https://kevq.uk/key (just an example) to https://keyoxide.org/YOUR-KEY work? This is far simpler to do (it works now!) and no need for complicated let's encrypt issuance process.
