How to Delete a Domain

There are a number of reasons you may wish to delete a domain from your OptinMonster account, such as if you reach your site limit.

IMPORTANT: Deleting a domain from your account will also remove it from any campaigns in your account that are set to load on that domain. If a domain is deleted by mistake you will need to register it again to your account and manually set that domain in the campaign website field for each individual campaign. Proceed with caution.

To delete a domain from your OptinMonster account, navigate to the Sites page.

Site Menu

Then select the Delete button next to the site you would like to delete.

Delete Site

An alert box will appear asking you to confirm the deletion of the domain, once you select the Yes, I’m sure button in the alert box the domain will be deleted.


Sub-Domain Targeting

Looking to target sub-domains when registering a domain to your account? You can specifically target subdomain and main-level domains when registering a domain to your OptinMonster account.

The following options are available when registering your domains on OptinMonster:

Top-Level Domain

Setting a top-level domain will allow your campaign to load only on the main domain of your site. Your campaign will not load on any sub-domain of your site.

Sub-Domain

Setting a sub-domain will allow your campaign to load only on that sub-domain of your site. Your campaign will not load on the top-level domain or any other sub-domain of your site.

Wildcard Sub-Domain

Setting a wildcard sub-domain will allow your campaign to load on any sub-domain of your site. Your campaign will not load on the top-level domain of your site.


FAQs

Q: How can I allow my campaign to appear on every sub-domain and the top-level domain of my site?

A: You can configure your campaign to load everywhere on your site regardless of the sub-domain or the top-level domain by setting both a top-level domain and wildcard sub-domain in the Campaign Website field of the builder.
