Host your landing page on your domain - 1&1 example

Overview

This tutorial is dedicated to hosting your landing page on your subdomain on 1&1.

We recommend that you use your main domain name and create a subdomain dedicated to hosting your landing pages. Be as transparent as possible, for example: pages.yoursite.com.

Good to know:
- You shouldn't use a domain or subdomain used elsewhere. For example, it should not be your website's domain, the domain used for your messaging service or the subdomain associated with your dedicated IP.
- When hosting a landing page on your own domain, please remember to use a multi-page landing page. Follow this guide to learn more about managing sub-pages within your multi-page landing page. 

Create two new DNS records on 1&1

In this example, we will host our landing page on subdomain pages.sendinbluecc.site.

1. Login to your 1&1 account.

2. Once you are logged into your 1&1 account, go to My Products tab then click on Domains. Click on the gear next to your domain name (see below). Click on Manage sub-domains.

3. Click on Create a sub-domain and a pop up will be displayed as shown below. Type your sub-domain name (in this case: pages.sendinbluecc.fr).

Verify DNS propagation

Your modifications will be applied immediately to the DNS zone, but please remember that propagation may take up to 72 hours.

Return to your SendinBlue account to verify DNS propagation.
