Delete a Site

Deleting a site from your account will also remove it from any campaigns in your account that are set to load on that site. If a site 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.
  1. Navigate to the Sites page as shown in the first section of this article.
    Site Menu
  2. Next, select the Delete button next to the site you would like to delete.
    Delete Site
  3. An alert box will appear asking you to confirm the deletion of the domain, once you select the Yes, I’m sure button the domain will be deleted.

Sub-Domain Targeting

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.

Troubleshooting

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

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 Website field of the campaign builder.
