You can assign a landing page to your own domain in the Smartpages 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 Bluehost. Before you manage the DNS records, add the domain in Smartpages.
Add DNS records in Bluehost
- Log in to Bluehost and go to Domains. Find your domain on the list and navigate to the DNS section.
- Scroll down and add new records.
Redirecting a subdomain – other than www
Add a new CNAME record. Edit the Host field and copy Points to value. Paste the values to your CNAME record.
- Name: type in your new subdomain name, e.g., ebook for ebook.yourdomain.com
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:
Finish the configuration in Smart pages
When you’re ready, go back to Smart pages 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.
