Customize Your Landing Page URLs with a CNAME

Last update: 2023-07-21

Even though Marketo hosts your landing pages, the URL can be totally customized. What it looks like without a CNAME:

https://na-sj02.marketo.com/lp/mktodemoaccount126/UnsubscribePage.html

The way it should look:

https://go.YourCompany.com/UnsubscribePage.html

Choose a CNAME

Pick a word to go at the beginning of the URL for your landing pages. It’s just one word and should be relatively short. Examples:

  • go.YourCompany.com/NameOfPage.html
  • info.YourCompany.com/NameOfPage.html
  • pages.YourCompany.com/NameOfPage.html

The one word (plus YourCompany.com) is called a CNAME. You’ll need this later so make a note of it.
