Custom Domains require Premium Preference Centers.
To create a custom domain on Zaius there are two requirements:
- The ability to update DNS records for your domain (or a technical team that can perform the update on your behalf)
- Access to one of the following emails (to enable secure links [SSL]):
Create a Custom Domain
Open the domain card and select "Create Custom Domain" and enter the domain name that you own where customers should update their preferences. For example: preferences.acme.com
Note: Steps 2 & 3 can be completed in any order
Update CNAME Records
To redirect all traffic to the correct URL, Zaius requires updated DNS records. Provide the information provided in the "Type", "Hostname" and "Value" fields to your technical team. It should look similar to the screenshot below:
Send Domain Verification Email
To ensure you actually own the domains in question, Zaius needs to send an email to your technical team to generate a secure link. Amazon Web Services (AWS) will send emails on behalf of Zaius to all the addresses listed and your team must click one (1) of the links and confirm ownership before publishing the Preference Center.
Validate & Verify
Once you've updated DNS records and/or clicked the domain verification email, you can "Verify Custom Domain" to check that you've completed the steps properly. Please note that some DNS/SSL changes can take up to 24 hours to propagate (but it typically takes less than an hour).
