Follow the instructions in the articles linked below to set up the URL for your page, according to your preferred publishing method:

  1. Custom Domain - A domain name that you already own (i.e. subdomain.yoursite.com)
  2. Wordpress - For adding pages to your WordPress website (i.e. www.yoursite.com/promo)
  3. Drupal - Publishing your page on a Drupal website
  4. Page Demo - A subdomain we provide (i.e. promo.pagedemo.co) for testing your page before you publish it to your own custom domain name. We do not recommend running ads or any other campaigns to a pagedemo.co URL. They have a limit of 30 requests per minute per IP and they will get unpublished in 72h during the free trial stage of the subscription.

An additional option is publishing to the main domain via reverse proxy. Our Implementation Team can assist Instapage Converting customers with setting up a reverse proxy. In case you are interested in upgrading to Converting, you can click here to contact our team.

While pages published using the Custom Domain publishing method are served through Google Cloud, pages published using pagedemo.co are served through AWS. If you intend to test your pages for their loading speed we recommend using the Custom Domain publishing method for the best accuracy. 

Who is going to find my page after I publish it?

If you have doubts about publishing to your own domain because nobody else should see the page before it's ready, you have nothing to worry about. Your pages cannot be found by people who do not have the direct URL unless you manually disable the Hide page from search engines toggle found in the Search & Social tab of the slideout. The toggle is ON by default. It being ON means that the page has noindex;nofollow tags added to the page source and it cannot be crawled.
If, on the contrary, you would like the page to be indexed by search engines, please follow the instructions here.

How can I change the publishing method?

If you already have your page published and you want to change the publishing method or the URL, for example from pagedemo to your custom domain, follow the GIF below:
