We’ve discovered that marketers typically don’t like to mess around with the technical settings of external domains. Also, at larger clients, marketers often don’t want to wait around for an IT person to be provisioned to make the change.
Postalytics developed a simple, fast and non-technical process to find and configure vanity domains from within the Postalytics platform.
You can easily search for, purchase and manage vanity domains marketing campaigns.
How to Purchase and Register a Vanity Domain
Below are step by step instructions on how to search for and purchase a vanity domain in Postalytics.
From the Home page, click on Domains under your username in the upper righthand corner.
Next, in the Domains tab, search to see if the domain you have in mind is available. Enter the domain name in the first box, and select the extension from the menu in the second box, and then click Search:
In the example below, ‘testmail.com’ has been entered, to see if it is available:
This domain has already been purchased, so another selection will need to be made. Let’s try premiertestmail.com:
This domain, premiertestmail.com, is available so check the terms and conditions box and click Register Domain. The next screen is a message asking to confirm the registration. Click Yes, Proceed to Payment Page to proceed.
You’ll be directed to the Checkout page. If everything is correct, click Continue.
Next, confirm the Payment Information and click Submit Order.
The final page, Order Summary, includes a message stating that the domain is being registered. Once the domain has been registered, it will appear on your account’s Domain page under Domains and you’ll be ready to use it for pURL campaigns. *Note that new domain registrations can take up to 24 hours to propagate.
