Custom URLs are used with Deadline Funnel Email Links and Animated Email Countdowns.
You can choose from one of the default custom URLs included with Deadline Funnel or create a custom URL using one of your own sub-domains.
How to Set a Custom URL:
1. To set the Custom URL that is active for your Email Links and Animated Countdowns, go to Your Account >> Advanced >> Custom URLs:
2. Select the Custom URL you want to use from the drop-down and click 'Save':
NOTE: After you save your new custom URL, you'll need to copy and paste the new email links and email timer code into your emails to reflect the new URL (found in Edit Campaign >> Emails):
How to Create a Custom URL using a Sub-Domain:
1 To create a new Custom URL based on one of your domains go to Your Account >> Advanced >> Custom URLs:
2 Type the URL you would like to use into the 'Custom URL' box and hit enter to create your new Custom URL:
3 This will automatically set your new Custom URL as your preferred Custom URL, so all you need to do now is hit 'Save' and then you you can copy and paste your new Email Links as usual.
In order for the custom URL to work (e.g., http://demo.allegraloves.com), you will need to set up the CNAME for your sub-domain in your DNS manager, with the CNAME pointing to deadlinefunnel.com. Watch the video for step-by-step instructions for creating and pointing the CNAME.
NOTE: To test this, clear your tracking and visit your email link, to check that you land on the 'before' URL you specified in your Deadline Funnel campaign.
NOTE: We do not currently support HTTPS email links if you use your own custom domain name. Please use the links provided in your Deadline Funnel Campaign >> Emails exactly as they appear when using a custom domain name.
