Custom Domain for Affiliate Dashboard

A custom domain for your affiliate dashboard allows affiliates to access their dashboard at a URL like http://affiliates.yourdomain.com instead of https://account-name.leaddyno.com.

To use a custom domain name such as affiliates.yourdomain.com, create a CNAME through your DNS provider and point it to app.leaddyno.com.

Warning: When using custom domains, your affiliate dashboard will no longer be available via SSL due to the limitations and complexity of managing private SSL certificates.

Enabling a Custom Domain:

Alert: Configure your DNS settings with your provider BEFORE enabling the custom domain setting within LeadDyno, because as soon as you configure your DNS setting, we will redirect the old `https://account-name.leaddyno.com` to your custom domain name.

Contact your DNS provider

Each DNS provider is different, so we recommend contacting your DNS provider for detailed instructions on how to set up a CNAME record.

Add the CNAME record

Follow your DNS provider’s instructions to create a CNAME record for a subdomain such as affiliates that points to app.leaddyno.com. Your DNS changes can take over a full day to update and the wait varies among DNS and hosting providers.

Confirm that your DNS record is set up correctly

Use use the dig command with your custom domain. Using a custom domain as an example:

dig affiliates.example.com +nostats +nocomments +nocmd
;affiliates.example.com.                     IN      A
affiliates.example.com.              3592    IN      CNAME   app.leaddyno.com.
app.leaddyno.com.                    43192   IN      CNAME   < LEADDYNO-SERVER >.
< LEADDYNO-SERVER >.                 22      IN      A       54.XX.XX.XXX

Change LeadDyno Configuration

After setting up the CNAME record with your provider, go to the LeadDyno Dashboard and then select Content -> Configure Affiliate Dashboard and in the Settings section, type in your custom domain name without the leading http:// into the Custom Domain box.

Your custom domain name should now be ready to use at http://affiliates.yourdomain.com.
