In Landingi, you can publish your landing page to your own subdomain. A free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate will be automatically added for every correctly installed subdomain.


This guide will show you how to set up a domain registered with AWS/Route 53.

Access the DNS management zone in AWS

1. Log in to your AWS Management Console.

2. Go to the Route 53 (3) console – click on Services (1) > Networking & Content Delivery (2), or use the search bar at the top.

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

Set up the DNS records

Now you need to configure the DNS records, select the type of your subdomain.

Before you start, read about www subdomain redirection.

1. Create two A records: one for your root domain and one for the www subdomain. If you already have these records, edit their values.

2. Copy and paste the following values:

  • Remember to leave empty the Record name field for the first record.
Type A

Record name:
leave empty
Value:
157.53.227.1
Type A

Record name:
www
Value:
157.53.227.1

3. Save changes.

1. Create an A record for the subdomain you want to add to Landingi. If you already have such a record, edit it.

2. Copy and paste the following values:

Type A

Record name:
your subdomain name
Value:
157.53.227.1

3. 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.

In some cases, you have to wait between 1 and 24 hours for the records to propagate.
