Starting today, you can use your own custom domain for the hosted Login UI — offering your users a unified login experience into user directories managed by Amazon Cognito. To add a custom domain, from the service console enter your domain name, and link it with a security certificate obtained from AWS Certificate Manager. With the newly announced feature, users can now stay within your application's domain, and thus enjoy a consistent branding experience.

AWS Certificate Manager is a service that lets you easily provision, manage, and deploy Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates for use with AWS services. AWS Certificate Manager removes the time-consuming manual process of purchasing, uploading, and renewing SSL/TLS certificates. SSL/TLS certificates provisioned through AWS Certificate Manager are free. You pay only for the AWS resources you create to run your application.

The feature is available in the following AWS Regions: Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Europe (London), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), US West (Oregon), US East (Northern Virginia) and US East (Ohio).
