When publishing a funnel with a custom domain, these are the 3 steps you need to follow:
- Add a custom domain to your account
- Assign the custom domain to your funnel
- Set a home page and publish the funnel
To add a custom domain to your account, from the Dashboard, click the [Menu Icon] from the top left corner of the screen to slide out the Main Menu, then choose “My Domain Names”
Domains that you’ve added to your account will show up here. To add a new domain, click the Add [+] button.
Enter the domain name (that you already own) on the space provided, then click [NEXT]. If you don’t have a domain yet, click here to get one.
Select if the domain is brand new or not. If it's new or unused, select [DOMAIN HAS NO CONTENT]
A DOMAIN HAS NO CONTENT if it's brand new and unused. When you try to access the domain, it will not redirect to an existing website.
A DOMAIN HAS CONTENT if it us currently being used for an existing website. When you try to access the domain, it will redirect you to an existing website.
Select the registrar of your domain or where you bought your domain. If it's not on the list, choose the [Others] option.
After selecting the registrar, it will give you a step by step instruction on how to point the domain to 10 Minute Funnels from inside your registrar account. Follow the steps then click [ALL DONE]
It usually takes about 20 minutes before the domain is ready, but in rare cases it can take up to 48 hours. If after 48 hours, your domain is not yet ready, just let us know so that we can check your set up in your registrar.
Open your campaign from the dashboard. Click [Campaign Settings] then select [Connect a Domain Name]
Click the arrow down and select the domain name you added on step 1 and click [SAVE]
The custom domain name should appear below the campaign name after it has been assigned to the campaign
Setting a page as a home page allows that page to have the main page URL (e.g. www.mydomain.com)
From inside the Campaign Builder, choose one of the pages in the funnel as your homepage (e.g. Lead Capture Page), click [Page Actions] and select [Set as My Home Page]
Open the page by clicking [START] or [Edit Page] from Page Actions
Click the [publish] button found at upper right corner of the page.
After publishing, your custom domain will be applied to the page URL.
Click “Visit Page Now” to see the published page.
You may also add an SSL to your custom domain. Adding SSL makes your site secure. It protects your customers when they go to your website and submit any sensitive information such as address, phone number or credit card information. It changes the URL from "http" to https". This is an optional step, your custom domain will work even without the SSL.
