1&1 CNAME setup

If you're a large or extra-large customer looking to use your own domain as a tracking link and need to redirect (setup) your CNAME with a domain registered with 1&1 please follow these instructions.

  1. Log in to your 1&1 account.
  2. If it's not already selected, click the Administration tab.
  3. Click Domains. The Domain Overview page appears.
  4. From the New drop-down menu, select Create Subdomain. (If you've already created a subdomain for your website's address, skip to step six.)
  5. Enter the prefix of the address that you picked in ClickMeter, and click OK. (For example, if you chose track.yoursite.com for your custom address, you should enter track here.)
  6. Check the box next to the subdomain. (Example: track.yoursite.com)
  7. From the DNS menu, select Edit DNS Settings.
  8. Click the radio button next to CNAME.
