    Delete a domain alias

    Trish Voskovitch
      i created a domain alias to see how it worked but how do i delete it now? i can actually only see it exists when i get to redirect rule area.

      where else can you see all your domains so you can delete ones you need to delete? 

      2nd part of question:
      i created the test domain alias to see if when i created a new landing page i would have option of choosing that domain as my LP URL. but seems landing pages default to the main CNAME domain.
      so is only purpose of a domain alias so you can use that domain in print or when you spell out the actual URL? they just redirect to main domain so your visitors see the main domain in browser URL field anyway.
      i thought maybe i create the landing page and then go back into "edit URL settings" but that doesn't work either.
      so not really sure why you need aliases at all if you aren't putting urls in print or spelling them out anywhere (we jsut have as links in emails and from our website but the urls themselves behind buttons and text)

      we have 2 product lines so hoping i could create landing pages with URL using product A domain and other landing pages using URL product B domain but looks like not.

          yes, it is primarily for microsites to shorten the URL or make custom ones.

          My understanding of it is you can use either domain and it goes to the original domain URL.

          You should be able to choose this if you go to URL Settings or when you create the page by selecting the "info.yourcompany.com" drop down.

            If it is just a test, you should be able to remove it without a problem.

              Ah, ok, so this is easily removed because it is just a redirect masquerading as a particular page
              https://community.marketo.com/MarketoResource?id=kA650000000GtnhCAC&refURL=http%3A%2F%2Fcommunity.marketo.com%2FMarketoResource

              The other part that I said about the drop down is only for secondary domains.

                thanks, i didn't look under rules- wasn't thinking of it as a ruel!

                nope, when i create a new page i don't get an option to pick the domain alias as url for the landing page.

                  another piece of my puzzle

                  if i change my main cname to a new domain (not just CNAME but totally new domain) and then create an alias for the old domain will all my old landing pages still work or do i need to create the alias in certain way or create a secondary redirect

                  so:
                  my current landing pages are marketing.enkata.com/xxx

                  i am changing our cname and domain to marketing.uptick.com

                  so new LPs will be marketing.uptick.com/xxx

                  then i was told to create a comain alias for marketing.enkata.com

                  i just want to make sure if i do these items my old landing page links will all still work (the reason i do the domain alias for the old domain)

                  and also we have some pages we want to know be marketing.uptick.com that are currently marketing.enkata.com
                  is there a way to just change the URL or do i need to rebuld them all after changing the main cname/domain

                  there are quite a few so hoping some way to just change the URL but so far i can't find any info or see how it woudl be done

                  but we do have some landing pages that we want to keep as marketing.enkata.com (so a global change wouldn't work if that is an option)


                  thanks,
