In the Landingi platform, you can publish landing pages to your subdomain. The first step is to add a subdomain to your account and redirect it via the DNS records.

A free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate will be automatically installed for your subdomain when you add it to your account and redirect it to Landingi.

Before you start, make sure to read more about the basic DNS records, and root domains and subdomains.

Add a domain to your account

1. Log in to the Landingi platform and go to the Domains tab and click on Add domain.

2. Type the domain name you want to add and click on Continue. You can add:

  • a subdomain, such as portfolio.mycompany.com
  • a www subdomain, such as www.mycompany.com

Redirect your domain via DNS records

In the next step, you will get the details that you need to configure your domain. You can follow those steps or use the guides available in our Help Center:

Log in to the domain administration panel on your domain’s provider and configure the DNS records.

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 to let you know whether you can go ahead and assign your subdomain to a landing page.

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

Troubleshooting redirections

If you don’t feel like doing it by yourself or do not have access to the domain admin panel, here is the draft of a message to forward to the domain provider or a person responsible for your domain administration. You can always contact our Support Team.

Hello there, I want to redirect my domain to the Landingi platform.
I have my landing page ready and I want to publish it to my domain using the DNS records.

{If you want to redirect a subdomain} Please help me set up this DNS record: 
Domain: subdomain.domainname.com Type: CNAME Address: cname.landingi.com. 

{If you want to redirect a www subdomain} Please help me set up these DNS records: 
Domain: www.domainname.com Type: CNAME Address: cname.landingi.com. Domain: domainname.com Type: A Address: 174.129.25.170 
Cheers!
