Purchase a Custom Domain
First you must purchase a custom domain. Please follow the steps in the Domain Set Up Guide to do so http://help.communigator.co.uk/m/Setup/l/316765-communigator-domain-setup-guide
If your domain is in the form of a https, and has web capture forms then please follow the steps below:
Change your A Record to point at the IP of your custom domain. It should have the number of 220.127.116.11.
For the next steps you will do one or the other. The icon shown on your web capture form, this will be on the far right, determines this.
It will either be:
1. An iFrame or
2. A submission url
1. Select the iFrame web capture, then the 'Details' tab.
2. Select the 'Web Capture URL' and type in the https url to match the one for your sending domain.
Make sure that it reads as https:// instead of http://
Now that your domain/sub-domain has been created you can use it on your site.
The purpose for creating your domain/sub-domain is simple: it is used to create a unique address for your site. This allows no one else to register a domain with the same name, and allows people from your company to have an email unique to that domain.
For CommuniGator this is essential if you want to send email campaigns, have a website with Gator Leads, and many more functions that allow the product to perform at it's peak.
