To publish your landing page to your subdomain you need to add it to your account, redirect it via the DNS records and assign it to your landing page. A free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate will be automatically installed for your subdomain when you add it to your account.

This guide will show you how to set up a domain registered via DreamHost. Before you manage the DNS records, add the domain in Landingi.

Access the DNS management zone

1. Log in to DreamHost and go to Domains > Manage Domains

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

3. Click on Add Record on the right.

Redirecting a subdomain – other than www

Add a new CNAME record. Edit the Name field and copy the Target value. Paste the values to your CNAME record.

  • Name: type in your new subdomain name, e.g., ebook for ebook.yourdomain.com
Type CNAME

Host:
subdomain

Points to:
 cname.landingi.com

Click on Add Record. The propagation can take up to 6 hours before the new record updates online. 

Redirecting a www subdomain

Before you start, read tips on redirecting a www subdomain with A and CNAME records.

Add new A and CNAME records. If you already have the A record or a www CNAME record, edit their values.

Copy and paste the following values:

Type A

Host:
@

Points to:
 174.129.25.170
Type CNAME

Host:
 www

Points to:
 cname.landingi.com

Click on Add Record. The propagation can take up to 6 hours before the new record updates online. 

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.
