You can assign a landing page to your own subdomain in the Landingi platform. A free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate will be automatically installed for your subdomain when you add a domain to your account.

This guide will show you how to set up a domain registered via AWS/Route 53. Before you manage the DNS records, add the domain in Landingi.

Access the DNS management zone

1. Log in to your AWS management console.

2. Go to the Route 53 console. Click on Services (1) and scroll down or use the search bar (2) at the top of the page to find the console. 

3. Click on the DNS Management section and locate your domain name.

Redirecting a www subdomain

1. Add new A and CNAME records.

Click on Create Record, copy and paste the following values:

Record type A
Value: 174.129.25.170

Click on Add another record and create a CNAME record. If you already have a www CNAME record, edit its value. Copy and paste the following values:

Record type CNAME
Record name: www
Value: cname.landingi.com

2. Click on Create Records to save changes.

Redirecting a subdomain – other than www

1. Add a CNAME record.

Click on Create Record, copy and paste the following values:

Record type CNAME
Record name: your subdomain name
Value: cname.landingi.com

2. Click on Create Records to save changes.

Finish the configuration in Landingi

Go back to Landingi and confirm the redirection.

Our system is verifying if DNS redirections have been done correctly. During this time, a clock icon will be visible next to the domain with the information that the domain is being verified. Usually, the domain will be active a few hours after adding it, but the total waiting time depends on the number of domains in our system waiting in the queue to install the certificate. We will email when the domain is installed correctly.

A green globe icon indicates an active domain. You can assign it to your landing page.
