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 subdomain registered via Google Domains. Before you manage the DNS records, add the domain in Landingi.

Access the DNS management zone

1. Log into Google Domains.

2. Go to My domains, find your domain on the list and click on Manage.

3. Go to the DNS tab on the left, locate the Custom records section and click on Manage custom records.

Redirecting a subdomain – other than www

Add a new CNAME record. Click on Create new record.

Below are values for your CNAME record. Edit the Host name field and copy the Data field. Paste the values for your CNAME record in Google Domains.

  • Host name: type in your subdomain name, for example home for home.mycompany.com
  • Dot: add a dot at the end of the Data value
Type CNAME

Host name:
subdomain

Data:
cname.landingi.com.

Here are DNS records set up for a subdomain called aboutme.dnsredirects.page:

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. Click on Create new record.

Below are values for your 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 in Google Domains:

  • Host name for A record: leave empty
  • Dot: add a dot at the end of the Data value for CNAME
Type A
Data:
 174.129.25.170
Type CNAME

Host name:
www

Data:
 cname.landingi.com.

Here are DNS records set up for a subdomain called www.dnsredirects.page:

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.
