Publishers: adding a domain

To add a domain to your branded portal act as follows:

1. Domain is an essential thing to start working with your branded portal:

  • if you do not have a domain yet, you need to purchase one first with the help of any domain name registrar you know. Google the available registrars and choose the one suitable for you. In this guide, we will show how to add a CNAME and TXT on the example of the GoDaddy domain registrar. Once you’ve purchased a domain, proceed with step 2.
  • if you already have a purchased domain move on to step 2.

Important disclaimer!

The settings below are demonstrated on the example of the GoDaddy registrar. Your settings may differ depending on the registrar you bought your domain in.

2. You need to integrate your domain which is made the same way as a custom tracking domain – via creating a CNAME record, but in case of the branded portal domain settings, your CNAME record should point to pub.redtrack.io. Check out the guide on how to add a CNAME record to your domain by pressing here.

3. Create a TXT record in your domain settings to make sure that your partners/publishers get your e-mails
