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 DirectAdmin. Before you manage the DNS records, add the domain in Landingi.

Access the DNS management zone

1. Log in to your DirectAdmin panel.

2. Find your domain on the list and click on it.

3. Navigate to the Account Manager section and go to DNS Management.

Redirecting a www subdomain

Add new A and CNAME records.

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

Record type A
Name: yourdomain.com.
(Note: add a dot at the end of the domain name)
Value: 174.129.25.170

Record type CNAME
Record name: www.yourdomain.com.
Value: cname.landingi.com.
(Note: add a dot at the end of the name and value)

Redirecting a subdomain – other than www

Add a CNAME record.

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

Record type CNAME
Name: subdomain.yourdomain.com.
Value: cname.landingi.com.
(Note: add a dot at the end of the name and value)

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.
