Why might you need the custom domain add-on? When Mad Mimi rewrites the links in your promotion for click tracking, she will use your own domain!
To Set Up Custom Domain:
- Click on Add Things
- Then click Go set it up
- Add the subdomain you’d like to direct links through and click Validate and Save. Note: It is important to use a subdomain for this step.
That’s it on the Mimi side of things!
Important: Make sure you properly configure your DNS. To do this, add an A record and point it to 126.96.36.199
To test and make sure your DNS is set up properly, just go to the subdomain you chose for your promotion link redirects. If it points to Mad Mimi, you’ve done it correctly!
Not sure how to configure your DNS? Check out your web hosting company’s help pages–it’s usually in the faq. For example, if your domain is hosted at GoDaddy, then you can follow the steps in the help article here.
If you don’t already have your own domain, check out GoDaddy web hosting and domain registration for help with anything web domain related.
