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 Shopify. Before you manage the DNS records, add the domain in Landingi.

Access the DNS management zone

1. Log in to your account in the Shopify platform.

2. In the menu on the left, find the Settings tab.

2. Scroll down and go to the Domains tab.

3. Click Manage for the domain that you want to configure.

4. Click DNS Settings.

5. If you do not have the DNS record, click Add custom record, and then select the record type that you want to add. Otherwise, click Actions and Edit for the record that you want to change.

Redirecting a subdomain – other than www

Edit the Host field and copy the Points to one. Paste the values to your CNAME record.

  • Host: type in your new subdomain name, e.g., ebook for ebook.yourdomain.com
  • Dot: add a dot at the end of the Points to field
Type CNAME

Host:
subdomain

Points to:
 cname.landingi.com.

Save the changes.

Redirecting a www subdomain

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

Copy Host and Points to values. Paste them to your A and CNAME records.

  • Dot: add a dot at the end of the Points to field
Type A

Host:
 @

Points to:
 174.129.25.170
Type CNAME

Host:
 www

Points to:
 cname.landingi.com.

Save the changes.

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.

Important information

– Remember that this guide refers to an external tool and its settings may change at any time, regardless of the Landingi platform.

– If you redirect the root domain on which your store is located to the Landingi servers, then the current page will stop displaying.
