Setting up your own domain name to use with KickoffLabs is easy. If you bought a domain name AND hosting from a service (usually like from a domain provider like HostGator), you will need to configure your DNS within cPanel.
Here’s how to setup your custom domain in cPanel for use with KickoffLabs:
These instructions are for setting up the “www” version of your site with KickoffLabs. To publish to a subdomain OTHER THAN www (like launch.example.com, signup.example.com, etc.), you first need to create the subdomain inside of cPanel. After doing so, you can follow along to Cpanel’s steps here.
Now you can publish a landing page to your newly added Custom Domain.
- Back in your KickoffLabs Dashboard, choose the campaign and locate the landing page you want to publish. Click the Settings cog on the far right side of the page name and select “Page Settings” from the dropdown.
- Select your custom domain from the 2nd dropdown menu. You can also add a path to the page in the 3rd field (like /thanks or /thank-you for the thank you page). This is optional, but allows you to publish multiple pages to the same subdomain.
- Then click ‘Publish Landing Page’.
If you have trouble setting up your domain, or have any questions in general send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
