Landing Pages

domain landing pages

The Landing Page functionality in DMP is an excellent way to point all your domains to landing pages, forward to sales pages, or monetize your domains in a much more effective way other than parking as we know it.

You can find the controls for Landing Pages under Customize Website then Landing Pages in the Main Menu.

There are 3 types of Landing Pages: Standard, Monetized, and Redirect.

Standard – this option generates a typical landing page with optional BIN button and contact or offer form and no advertising.

Monetized – this creates a page that has the elements of a standard landing page but with Google Custom Search field on top and ads you can create under Monetization in the main menu.

Redirect – this will redirect the landing page to the sales page in your DMP shop. Can be used to forward domains in bulk to sales pages. Learn more about domain landing and sales pages and how to use them.

How to Set Up Landing Pages

  1. Add the domains to your DMP shop.
  2. At your registrar, set the nameservers to ns1.namecontrol.net and ns2.namecontrol.net.
  3. Set the nameservers in your DMP control panel. Here’s how
  4. Use the controls under Customize Website – Landing Pages to select type of landing page, add comments and tweak your landing pages.

Domain Landing Pages

You can use the shortcode, {domain}, to dynamically replace it with the actual domain the landing page loads for.

Next, choose a theme. Otherwise the default theme will be used.

Domain Landing Pages

There are a number of different landing page themes you can choose from. Some can be monetized, some are branded (ie. borrow design elements of the main DMP Shop), some allow for a custom image to be uploaded, and some allow for all of the above.

For landing pages that allow custom images, a button for upload with appear after that theme is selected. You can then upload your own background image:

Domain Landing Pages

Recommended background image size: 1920 x 1080 pixels and under 500 kilobytes. Tip: The more detail an image has, the larger the file size and the extra detail will also distract from the text.

* NOTE: Any forwarded domains that are not added to the DMP Shop will automatically redirect to the home page.

The above settings will affect all domains. You can also set up landing pages for individual domains or domains in a specific category.

How to Set Up Landing Pages for Individual Domains

How to Set Up Landing Pages for Specific Categories

To set up landing pages for specific categories, the process is exactly the same as per domain. Except, you will have to select Categories from the main menu. Then, next to the category, select the landing page icon to open the landing page settings options as per this graphic:

The Offer Submission Process

  1. The buyer fills out a simplified form and passes the anti-spam recaptcha test.
  2. The DMP Shop admin receives notification of the offer and the offer is stored in the back-end control panel.
  3. The buyer receives an email to confirm their offer.
  4. The DMP Shop admin is notified of the confirmation.

If the domain has a BIN (Buy It Now) price then a button to buy is also displayed on the landing page above the offer form. The BIN button links to the shopping cart on the DMP Shop.

Discount Codes

You are able to create Discount Codes for domains that have prices. The discount code(s) can be created with an expiry date and sent to domain announcement lists, to individual buyers that you may have struck a deal with or want to motivate, posted on social media, etc.

If a discount code for a particular shop exists, then a field will appear in the cart to enter and apply the code to the total amount.

To create a discount code, follow these steps:

1/ In the left-hand menu, select Lead Gen then Discounts.

2/ Select the button “Create a New Discount Code”

3/ In the pop-up modal, enter the following:

  • Code – this is a name for the code which buyers can enter in the shopping cart to redeem it and apply the discount.
  • % Discount – percentage of the discount to be applied to the total (before taxes, if applicable).
  • Expiry Date – must be today’s or a future date for the discount code to be available.

All discount codes, current and expired, will appear in the window below and can be deleted at any time.

You can have multiple discount codes for any single shop and different discount codes for different shops.

Discount codes can also be included in conjunction with the domain promotion landers to run campaigns on social media.
