For the Name, enter only the subdomain of the address you want to use for your Instapage custom Domain. For example, if you picked lander.mydomain.com as your address, enter lander here. Or, if you're using a root domain such as www.mydomain.com then you'll want to enter www here. Do not leave this blank;

  • Select CNAME from the Type dropdown menu;
  • Enter pageserve.co as the Value;
  • Click Add Record Now. You will now need to wait up to a couple of hours for the CNAME to function.
