Landing Site Custom Domain
You can easily set up a custom domain for your Goodbits landing site.
Currently, when you enable a landing site, we will create a subdomain on 'ongoodbits.com' for you. You can change this to your liking, but if you want to brand your email newsletter further, we allow you to set up a custom domain.
To set up your custom domain, you must modify DNS records to set up an ALIAS or CNAME (if a subdomain) to 'ongoodbits.com'.
Enable a custom domain
Under your landing site settings page, which is accessible from your Integrations (found on the left sidebar). Under the landing site settings, flip the toggle for using a custom domain and enter the domain you would like to use.
Don't worry, if in the preview under the settings, you don't see a page. This means that your DNS has yet to be set up. Below are the two common ways that the DNS can be configured with us.
A subdomain type of domain name would be one such as 'www.newsletter.com' or 'newsletter.brewhouse.io'. You can set this up with your DNS using a CNAME record.
This record below is what would need to be added to get a 'www' subdomain working.
If you are setting up a 'www' subdomain redirect, don't forget to look into setting up a forward on your root level domain.
Root level domain DNS
A root level domain is for when you would like to set up a domain like 'newsletter.com'. This is not for when you would like to use 'www.newsletter.com'; refer to below to set up that as it is a subdomain.
Some DNS providers allow you to set up this kind of domain. We recommend setting up a subdomain 'www.newsletter.com' and having your top-level domain 'newsletter.com' redirect to 'www.newsletter.com'.

Here is an overview of the generic record that needs to be defined.
