Adding additional Landing Page CNAME question

I just added a new domain alias to the Admin Landing Pages area following the instructions here:

https://docs.marketo.com/display/public/DOCS/Add+Additional+Landing+Page+CNAMEs

 

The process seemed to complete without error but I can't see the domain alias I just created listed anywhere. Shouldn't I be able to see it so as to know it's there?

Re: Adding additional Landing Page CNAME question


 They are trying to use Unbounce LPs on an Earlens subdomain. Hence they created get.earlens.com and asked me to set it up in Marketo and to give them the Munchkin code. Their end goal is to use Unbounce LPs and have any leads who fill in forms (they intend embedding Marketo forms based on their belief that can use an Earlens subdomain hence connect them to Marketo) into the Earlens Marketo instance. Is this approach even possible?

But that doesn't have anything to do w/creating a new Marketo Domain Alias...

 

You can embed a Marketo form (using the Forms 2.0 embed code) on any page, say https://www.example.com, even if your primary Marketo LP domain is https://pages. example.info.

Re: Adding additional Landing Page CNAME question

You should definitely see it in the Rules.

Re: Adding additional Landing Page CNAME question

Thank you! I just checked back and it's there in the rules now! Maybe there was a lag time.

Re: Adding additional Landing Page CNAME question

Hey Sandy - As I said, now it IS showing up in the rules but the redirect is not working:

I'm suspicious that the CNAME was not set up correctly. As I read Marketo's instructions, IT should have been asked to configure this for the additional CNAME:

get.earlens.com > earlenscorporation.mktoweb.com

 

Do I have that right (I was told the CNAME had been set up but wasn't involved in requesting it and have reason to believe they requester might not have been looking at Marketo's instructions)?

The alias is still pointing to Unbounce as of right now.

Re: Adding additional Landing Page CNAME question

I know you can embed the code and it will create a form, but you can't just create a Marketo form on any old web site and have the data flow into someone's Marketo instance. Right?

Re: Adding additional Landing Page CNAME question

I guess I was wrong, because I just filled out a form on their unbounce page and it fed the information into Marketo. I'm still confused but clearly I was wrong. So I guess I can just delete the LP alias I set up?

Yep, there's no need for a Domain Alias.
