Yes and no, but mostly yes. You can set up a CNAME entry in your hosting DNS settings to enable you to run your landing pages from a custom subdomain such as http://promo.yourwebsite.com which will set your landing pages to appear at http://promo.mysite.com/landing-page-name/.
We still host your landing pages for you - but they now get to appear as if they are on your site. Magic.
As Unbounce hosts your landing pages, you can't download them for use somewhere else.
If you want to use a root domain just for your landing pages you can always setup your entire domain in the same way (by using www.mysite.com as the Custom Domain). Head over here to follow a step-by-step guide to setting up your custom domain »The upshot of all this is that if you have have a website living at http://www.mysite.com, you can't publish landing pages with Unbounce to http://www.mysite.com/landingpage - but you can use a CNAME so that your landing pages live at http://promo.mysite.com/ and any subdirectory of that address.
One question... Can I change an existing custom domain name??
Hi Tony, yes you can change existing custom domains at any time. Go to Account > Custom Domains and open the gear menu for the domain you want to change - you'll see an option for "Change Custom Domain". All pages that are using this domain will be changed to the new domain - but your visitor tracking cookies will not. What that means is any visitor who has previously been to a page and been assigned a variant will be treated as a brand new unique visitor the next time they come to the new URL.
Hope that helps!
Is there a way to integrate an unbounce landing page with Wordpress blog options? Specifically, if it's linked to my actual site, can I use it to post a video and then let people comment on the video below? Is that a capability of Unbounce? I'm trying to drive as much engagement and social interaction as possible on the things I teach. Thanks
Hi Mike - unfortunately we don't have an integration with Wordpress so this kind of functionality isn't possible. We have social media sharing widgets you can add to your landing page but they wouldn't provide the kind of interactive functionality you described.
My domain is currently pointing to Unbounce. Is it possible to setup a subdomain to point to a WordPress blog on another server (e.g.: blog.mydomain.com)? Thanks
Hi Michael - it sure is. You'd have to set that up with your host but it's just a matter of pointing the subdomain (e.g. blog.mydomain.com) to the IP address or domain where your blog is hosted (much like when you configured your domain to work with Unbounce). You'll want to contact your host or the service hosting the blog to confirm what the points-to value should be then configure the change in your DNS.
We use Unbounce for one of our pages. We want to A/B test our home page using Unbounce but don't want to set up a custom subdomain such as home.domain.com. Is there another solution such as embedding our Unbounce page between <iframe> tags?
Can I benefit from Unbounce if my site is a WordPress site?
I presume you need more information
Landing page: http://ayudapsicologicaya.com/psicologo/
Theme: Magazine Organic Themes for WordPress
Hi Javier - Unfortunately right now Unbounce is not integrated with Wordpress. Additionally, because Unbounce landing pages are built, published, and hosted on Unbounce servers, it is actually currently not possible to integrate the landing pages with existing websites.
In terms of the setup you have described, unfortunately if you have an active main website at 'www.ayudapsicologicaya.com', it would not be possible to set it up so that an Unbounce landing page sits at 'http://ayudapsicologicaya.com/psicologo/' because this would imply that it is a sub-folder of that website. As I mentioned above, since Unbounce pages are hosted on Unbounce servers, they cannot actually be used as sub-folders for an external website.
Moving forward if you have an active website at your root domain (ayudapsicologicaya.com), we would recommend using a sub-domain with your Unbounce landing pages instead. To learn more about custom domains and subdomains, and the setup required depending on which option you are using with your Unbounce pages, please see our Unbounce Answers article about custom domains here: http://support.unbounce.com/entries/20316578-how-do-i-set-up-my-cus...
I hope this helps!
Can I add my sign up form to blogspot?
@Katya - that depends what you had in mind. If you were hoping to embed your Blogspot signup form on your landing page then yes, that shouldn't be a problem. You'd first need to the embed code from Blogspot than would add it as a custom HTML widget as outlined in this article.
we are building a new site. do many people host their entire site in unbounce? what would be the limitations?
Hi James - Our main user based uses Unbounce primarily for individual landing pages, however we do have quite a number of customers who have used the platform to create and host their micro-sites. Depending on what you require for your website, the limitations can vary. But I think the main limitation which I come across with customers all the time is just that creating the navigation for your website is quite manual. Since, again, Unbounce's focus has been on landing pages rather than websites, we don't offer a native feature which will build out your site navigation. You will essentially need to create the individual links or upload images of your navigation buttons to link them to the subsequent pages.
I have a web app with several "public" pages and the app itself, which is accessed with a register / login.
Can I have all my public pages in unbounced?
I'm talking about static pages, with information about our service, pricing plans, etc.
Some pages have a very specific call to action (subscription) others don't.
Having the ability to redirect a subdir when using unbounce to host your entire domain would be mighty helpful. for example our landing getsortbox.com is all hosted through unbounce, but no way to add a getsortbox.com/blog via WP. Any tips on a workaround?
