If you already have a website published on your domain, note that editing the “www” record will replace your website with the landing page. To avoid this, please create a new CNAME record and configure it using the guide below.
1. After going through the first 3 steps indicated in this article in order to add your new subdomain, below are the following steps you need to take in the domain registrar before going back to finish the process and having your new subdomain in Instapage.
2. Log in to your account at http://www.dreamhost.com/login.html;
3. In the sidebar on the left, expand the Domains panel and select Manage Domains;
4. Scroll down to your domain name and select the DNS link underneath the domain;
5. The "Add a custom DNS Record" section should be near the top, enter the following information;
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;
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.
