By default, all pages hosted by Infusionsoft have a URL that shows infusionsoft.net in the address. For example, https://29jfwi.landingpages.net/your-page-name, which are automatically secure by SSL.
If you would like contacts to reach your landing pages through your existing domain, you can either make changes to your DNS records or use an iframe to embed into your website.
Create a new subdomain on your server
You can point your own subdomain to the landing page so that the URL retains your own branding instead of the default infusionsoft.net URL (https://default.pages.infusionsoft.net)
You can go ahead and enter the subdomain you want to use and set up the actual subdomain on your server later. A subdomain is a unique prefix to your business domain. For example, In the URL help.infusionsoft.com, "help" is a subdomain of the infusiosnoft.com domain.
Most web hosts make it easy to create subdomains and manage your DNS settings. Here is a video showing how to set up the necessary CNAME and TXT record for a subdomain.
Steps to configure your custom domain
- Go to the Launch tab
- In the Connect a domain (subdomain.example.com) field type your custom domain
- Use the text under Step 2 to create the DNS records on your server.
- After the DNS record is saved run a CNAME check to see if it has propagated. It can take 24-48 hours to propagate and for the internet to realize that a change was made. In step 3 click Click here to check the status of your DNS record, this will automatically load your custom domain into the search field.
(Results should look something like the image below.)
- Once the record is verified click Link
Review the Create a custom URL section above for more information on setting up your custom URL
Configuring your domain with Registrar
Following the video instructions above, you will have created a 'subdomain' as a 'CNAME' record pointing to 'pages.infusionsoft.net'
If you want your Infusionsoft Landing Page to be the main page on your domain, then you will need to configure a 301 permanent redirect from the apex or root domain to the sub domain above.
This prevents users from having to explicitly type the latter and will prevent search engines from creating colliding canonical URLs.
DNS settings for this setup would look something like this:
- '@ forwards 301 to www'
- 'www CNAME yourapp.infusionsoft.com'
Please note that Infusionsoft has no control of your domain's settings and cannot provide assistance with DNS changes. Once DNS changes are made, it may take up to 24-48 hours for changes to propagate. For any troubleshooting assistance, please contact your web developer and/or domain registrar.
If you would like to embed your published landing page on your site, via an iframe, as opposed to connecting your domain via the steps above, this too is an option.
Publish your landing page, or navigate to the Launch step of an already active landing page
Click the Embed tab
Click the box that contains the embed code to copy it to your clipboard
Paste the copied code to any page of your website, or share the code with your web developer.
