IONOS example - Host your landing page on your subdomain

💡 Good to know
Landing pages are available for Business and BrevoPlus plans.

In this article, we will explain how to host your landing page on a custom domain or subdomain using IONOS.

Good to know

Add your custom domain

❗️ Important
We highly recommend creating a new subdomain on your main domain that you will use to host your landing page. You can only host 1 landing page per subdomain, so we invite you to create 1 subdomain per landing page you want to host.
  1. Go to Contacts > Landing pages.

  2. Open the landing page that you want to host on your domain.

  3. Click Launch.

  5. Once published, insert the URL of the custom domain where you want your landing page to be visible.

  6. After entering the URL, click Connect.

From here, you will be provided with step-by-step instructions to host your landing page on your domain.

Step 3: Check your DNS status

Once you have created your TXT and CNAME records, your modifications will be applied immediately to the DNS zone. Please note that the propagation time can take up to 72 hours.

On your Brevo account, return to step 3 and click Click to check your DNS status. You will be redirected to a website that allows you to check your DNS propagation. Once your landing page is live on your URL, a green checkmark will appear on this page.
