Landing page for a photo contest on your own domain
Voucherify offers six different landing pages templates that are highly customizable and may be used for a variety of goals.
Today, we are going to learn how to use a simple landing page to host a photo contest about sharing photos of best memories to win a trip to New York for two🗽What's even better is that we are going to release the page on our own private domain 🤩
What are we going to do? 🤔
- Set up a custom domain to host a landing page.
- Add image metadata to use it later on in the form of our landing page.
- Design the landing page for the photo contest
- Connect the landing page to our new domain.
What do you need? 🤔
- An SSL Certificate.
Set up your domain 🔧
In order to add a new domain, you will need several things: a domain name, private key, certificate, and a certificate chain.
You can ask your IT services provider for this data 🤓
After providing these details, proceed to set up the DNS Configuration (first download it) to allow users to find your domain and establish the target resource of your landing page (i.e. what should the landing page show).
Well done 🤗 You've just set up your own domain.
If you've come across any obstacles during the process, contact your IT Department or get back directly to us.
