When you’re finished, select the Save button and your new domain will be successfully registered.

Add Domain to a Campaign

To register a domain through the campaign builder screen, first select an campaign from the Dashboard to edit.

If you need assistance in creating or editing a campaign, then you can see our guide here.

Once the campaign builder loads for your selected campaign, the Setup panel will be open by default. Scroll down in this panel to the Optin Campaign Website field.

If you have already added the domain to your account, then you can click in the text field and select one of the already registered domains. Then just click Save in the builder and you are done.

If you have not already added this domain to your account, then select the Add New Website button.

Select the Add a New Website button in the campaign builder to register a new domain to your account.

Selecting this button will open a modal window with the following fields for adding a new domain:

  • Site Name — Enter the name of the domain you’re registering. This is for internal use only.
  • Site Domain — Enter the domain you’re registering.
Warning: If you’re attempting to target a sub-domain (ex: subdomain.domain.com), please read our section on Sub-Domain Targeting.

A modal will open where you can enter the Name and Domain for the website you wish to add to your OptinMonster account.

Enter the Site Name and Site Domain, then select the Save Website button to finish adding the domain to your account. Once registered this domain will be available to set for other campaigns in your account as well.

Once you’ve finished adding the domain(s) you want your campaign to load on, select the Save button in the builder to save those changes to your optin.

To edit a site, first navigate to the Sites page.

Click-Edit-to-Edit-an-OptinMonster-site

You will be redirected to a new page where you will find the site’s information for its internally used title, its domain, and additional information (such as Global Cookies, and where you can add an Affiliate Link).

Make the desired changes on the domain edit screen, then Save Changes to apply those changes to the domain.


How to Delete a Domain

There are a number of reasons you may wish to delete a domain from your OptinMonster account. One of the more common reasons is if you have a Basic or Plus subscription and you’ve reached your site limit. You can also upgrade to Pro at any time to benefit from an unlimited number of domains!

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 optin. Proceed with caution.

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

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

Click-Delete-to-Delete-a-Site

An alert box will appear asking you to confirm the deletion of the domain, once you select the OK 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 now 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 Optin Campaign Website field of the builder.

Select an already registered domain by typing into the campaign Campaign Website field.
