TIP: **Tip:**
If you are installing for the first time, you can pass the
`EXTERNAL_URL="http://gitlab.example.com"` variable to set your preferred
domain name. Change `http://gitlab.example.com` to the URL at which you want to access your
GitLab instance. Installation will automatically configure and start GitLab at that URL.
Enabling HTTPS will require [additional configuration](settings/nginx.md#enable-https) to specify the certificates.
