Why use ConvertKit Custom Domains?

Using Convertkit Custom domains helps you showcase landing page URLs with your branded domain name.

Something like hustle.fetchprofits.com instead of dogged-innovatorck7988.mjbhdsks.com

The word “hustle” is the custom domain, affixed to the main domain name (fetchprofits.com). You can anything there, instead of “hustle” such as “get”, “Learn”, “courses”, “members”, “academy”, “school”, and so on — depending on what you do as a business or as a content creator.

How to Add Custom Domains For ConvertKit Landing Pages

  1. ConvertKit Account Settings > Add Custom Domain Name


    Log into your ConvertKit account and go to settings (top right corner). On the left side panel, click on “domains”. Find the option to “Add Custom Domains”.

    Type in your chosen custom domain name. You can use anything that’s relevant for your business. Such as:

    get.yourdomain.com
    learn.yourdomain.com
    coaching.yourdomain.com
    academy.yourdomain.com

    The words “get”, “learn” are your custom domains that’ll affix themselves before your main domain name. Add custom domain convertkit

  2. Assign a default page


    You’ll be given option to assign a default landing page for your new landing page URL that’ll be accessible using your custom domain name.

    The idea is this:

    Your assigned home page lives at: hustle.fetchprofits.com

    Any other landing pages created (for various purposes) can be assigned new URLs that’ll start with your custom domain. For instance:

    Landing page for course promotions: hustle.fetchprofits.com/emailcourse

    Landing page for webinars: hustle.fetchprofits.com/webinars

    Landing page for live streams: hustle.fetchprofits.com/live

  3. Grab Your DNS records


    ConvertKit will reveal three DNS type “A” records for you to use. You’d have to add them as A Records in your domain name’s DNS registrar as shown.

    host = your chosen custom domain name
    Value = the IP addresses that ConvertKit provides

    Add these records. Save them. Wait for these DNS settings to propagate. Adding DNS Records Convertkit

  4. Your custom domain goes live


    Here’s an example of a Link-In-Bio page I created for my social media accounts. This landing page was created using one of the ConvertKit landing page templates.

    The URL for this page is at hustle.fetchprofits.com/newsletter
