How to assign my own domain to the landing page?

Starting in February 2024, Gmail and Yahoo are rolling up new authentication requirements which require using a custom DKIM authenticated domain with DMARC reinforced.

GetResponse strongly advises all senders to use emails addresses from own sending domains as a from field, and to configure both DKIM and DMARC.

For additional details on these modifications, refer to our blog post:

The following article applies to our brand new Landing pages editor.

If you want to use your own domain for a legacy landing page, please use the following instructions.

If you own a domain, you can easily assign it to your GetResponse landing page.

Note: changing your domain’s DNS will disable any email accounts you have on that domain.

If you wish to keep using emails on the domain you want to link to your landing page, instead of changing DNS, create a subdomain for your page and a CNAME record for that subdomain.

Using a subdomain for your landing page is also recommended if you have another website at your root domain.

Click here for a guide on creating a CNAME record for your subdomain.

To assign your domain, go to Landing pages and click on the page name. In the landing page overview, click on the Connect a domain you own link.

How do I change nameservers?

You can check the official instructions made by other platforms on how to change nameservers here:

Please note that the steps may differ depending on where the domain is hosted. Articles linked above are created by each respective platform. If you have any additional questions about domain configuration you can reach out to their support.

How long does it take for the changes to the DNS settings to take effect?

It can take up to 24 hours for the changes to be propagated across the internet (in other words, for the nameservers and cache records to be updated).

If you try to use an unverified domain when creating a landing page, you’ll see a notification that lets you know that we’re checking the records. You don’t need to take any action. Just give it up to 24 hours for the process to conclude.

We’ll also let you know if we’re still not able to verify your domain after 48 hours. If you try to use an unverified domain, you’ll see a notification that tells you we couldn’t verify it.

This means the domain you’d like to assign doesn’t show anywhere in the DNS records. When you see it, you need to double-check your DNS settings.
