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 managed with Cloudflare.

You can manage your DNS records and name servers of every domain name via Cloudflare. Some domain providers require you to purchase a paid hosting package in order to edit the DNS records, but you can easily point the name servers to Cloudflare and point the DNS records to Landingi for free. When adding or editing records, you must temporarily disable the proxy for the domain.

Access the DNS management zone in Cloudflare

1. Log in to your Cloudflare account.

2. Find your domain and navigate to the DNS section.

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

  • Disable Cloudflare (proxy) after adding a new value for each record and then save changes. An active proxy will make it impossible to install the SSL certificate in Landingi.

2. Copy and paste the following values:

Type A

Name:
@
IPv4 address:
157.53.227.1
Type A

Name:
www
IPv4 address:
157.53.227.1

3. Save changes.

NOTE: Once you add the domain to your account correctly, you will receive an email. After that, you can enable the proxy in Cloudflare for your domain.

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

  • Disable Cloudflare (proxy) after adding a new value for each record and then save changes. An active proxy will make it impossible to install the SSL certificate in Landingi.

2. Copy and paste the following values:

Type A

Name:
your subdomain name
IPv4 address:
157.53.227.1

3. Save changes.

NOTE: Once you add the domain to your account correctly, you will receive an email. After that, you can enable the proxy in Cloudflare for your domain.

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.
