You can assign a landing page to your own domain in the Landingi platform. A free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate will be automatically installed for your domain when you add a domain to your account.

This guide will show you how to set up a domain registered via Namecheap.

Add a domain in Landingi

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

2. Type in the domain you want to add and click on Continue.

3. Note: In the next step, click on Done only after you have completed all the steps listed below.

Now you can configure the domain by adding DNS records to the domain in your Namecheap dashboard.

Edit or add DNS records in Namecheap

1. Log into your Namecheap account.

2. Select Domain List from the left sidebar and click on Manage next to your domain.

3. Select the Advanced DNS tab at the top of the page.

4. Redirecting a root domain.

I. Edit the CNAME record.

Find the Host Records section and edit the CNAME record – double-click on it. Enter the following host and value:

Type CNAME
Host: www
Value: cname.landingi.com.

II. Add an A record.

Click the Add New Record at the bottom.

Enter the following host and value:

Type A
Host:@
Value: 174.129.25.170

5. Redirecting a subdomain.

Find the Host Records section and edit the CNAME record – double-click on it. Enter the following host and value:

Type CNAME
Host: www (or any other)
Value: cname.landingi.com.

6. When you are ready, go back to Landingi and click on Done.

You will see a pop-up message that the configuration is done.

7. 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.

IMPORTANT: Due to the time needed for the dissemination of DNS records and installation of the SSL certificate, we recommend performing the above steps at least 3 days in advance of the campaign. If you want to use Cloudflare at the same time, please have a look here.

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