Hostname list for Pendo subscriptions in restricted network environments

Last updated:

If your organization operates in a restricted network environment where access is limited to pre-approved domains through a firewall, VPN, or web filter, it's essential to request explicit traffic allowance to Pendo servers from your network administrators.

Hostnames, which are specific addresses assigned to individual subdomains within a domain, play a crucial role in accessing Pendo. The hostnames listed in this article are essential for reaching both core service hosts necessary for using the Pendo app and support service hosts used for referencing Knowledge Base articles and other support offerings. Hosts related to accessing our marketing website and other non-core service aspects related hosts aren't included.

Wildcard option

You can include multiple hostnames under a single wildcard entry using asterisks (*). This means that you don't have to list each subdomain separately, and it automatically includes any new hosts we add to these domains in the future. This simplifies your allowlist management and ensures continued access to evolving subdomains.

For easy setup, we recommend adding the following wildcard entries to your allowlist:

  • *
  • *

If you use these wildcards, omit all hostnames in the Full list of hosts that end with and

The following table provides a comprehensive list of hosts that are essential for accessing Pendo's core and support services.

If you choose not to use wildcards, as recommended earlier in this article, some of these hosts might require modification if the data center for your subscription is outside of the United States. Detailed instructions for these modifications are in the subsequent section: Location-based changes.

Location-based changes

If your Pendo subscription is managed through our EU, US1, or Japan data centers, it's important to update certain hostnames accordingly. To determine your subscription's data center, examine the URL used to access Pendo and check for the presence of eu, us1, or jpn. If you're uncertain about whether this applies to your subscription, contact your Pendo account representative.

If you opt to use wildcards, as recommended earlier in this article, these changes aren't necessary.
