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 OVH.

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 OVH dashboard.

Add DNS records in OVH

1. Log in to OVH, find your domain on the list and click on it.

2. Go to DNS zone.

3. Delete the A and TXT records, if you want to redirect a root domain

Delete the TXT records only, if you want to redirect a subdomain

Make sure that there aren't any other TXT records left on the remaining pages.

4. Add new entries.

5. Add two new DNS records (CNAME and A) if you want to redirect a root domain

Type A
Target: 174.129.25.170

Type CNAME
Sub-domain: www
Target: cname.landingi.com.

Click Next and Confirm.

Add one CNAME record if you want to redirect a subdomain.

Type CNAME
Sub-domain: www (or any other)
Target: cname.landingi.com.

Click Next and Confirm.

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.

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.

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