Step 1. Point to the Domain's DNS
To set up the custom URL, you'll first need to configure the DNS records for your domain. As an example, for the domain "landings.yourdomain.com", you would set it up like this:
If your account is in Europe use the following DNS configuration:
landings.yourdomain.com CNAME brands.pushtech.com
If your account is in USA use the following DNS configuration:
landings.yourdomain.com CNAME brands.us.pushtech.com
This CNAME record ensures that when someone accesses "landings.yourdomain.com/my-landing-page", they'll be directed to "https://landings.yourdomain.com/landings/name-of-your-landing-page".
Step 2. Check that you have a SSL Certificate:
The subdomain you've set up (in this case, "landings.yourdomain.com") requires an SSL certificate to ensure a secure connection. This certificate consists of:
- A SSL Certificate (often referred to as the CRT and the private key)
You also have the option of using a Wildcard SSL certificate, which can cover all subdomains under a single primary domain, offering more flexibility but we recommend to use the specific SSL certificate for the subdomain in main cases.
Step 3. Share the SSL Certificate with PUSHTech:
Once you have your SSL certificate in place, you'll need to share it with us (or the relevant party). This will typically include:
- The public SSL certificate (CRT file)
- The private key (KEY file)
Remember, you should always securely share sensitive files. The private key should especially be kept confidential.
Once these steps are completed, your landing page should be accessible via the custom URL with a secure connection.
