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 DreamHost.

Access the DNS management zone in DreamHost

1. Log in to DreamHost and go to Domains > Manage Domains. Find your domain and click Manage.

2. Go to the Hosting tab.

3. Click Set to DNS Only and confirm in the next window.

4. Then, navigate to the DNS tab.

5. Click on Add Record on the right.

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.

2. Copy and paste the following values:

Type A

Host:
@
Points to:
157.53.227.1
Type A

Host:
www
Points to:
157.53.227.1

3. Click Add Record.

1. Add 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

Host:
your subdomain name, e.g., promo for promo.domain.com
Points to:
157.53.227.1

3. Click Add record.

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.
