To publish your landing page to your subdomain you need to add it to your account, redirect it via the DNS records and assign it to your landing page. A free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate will be automatically installed for your subdomain when you add it 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 subdomain – other than www

Click on Create Record to add a new CNAME record or edit an existing one. Edit the Record name (1) field and copy the Value (3) one. Paste the values to your CNAME record.

  • Record name: type in your new subdomain name, e.g., ebook for ebook.yourdomain.com
Type CNAME

Record name:
subdomain

Value:
 cname.landingi.com

Click on Create Records to save changes.

Redirecting a www subdomain

Before you start, read tips on redirecting a www subdomain with A and CNAME records.

If you already have the A record or a www CNAME record, edit their values or click on Create Record to add new records. Copy and paste the following values:

Type A
Value:
 174.129.25.170
Type CNAME

Record name:
 www

Value:
 cname.landingi.com

Click on Create Records to save changes.

Finish the configuration in Landingi

When you're ready, go back to Landingi and click on Confirm/Finish.

Once you've added the subdomain to your account, our system will verify whether the DNS redirections have been done correctly. During this time, an hourglass 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 you when the domain is installed correctly.

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