How to set-up a custom domain for tracking emails and links?

 

Docsify tracks your email and links and shows you who and when opened your email and clicked your links.

 

To track your emails we need to:

  • Put 1x1 invisible pixel in Email

  • Convert your link into trackable one

Both pixel and the trackable link is connected to Docsify - the URL is app.thebesttool.net/pixel/….

But you can make this URL totally custom for example - pxl.yourcompanyname.com.

 

As a result - you will get:

  • Better deliverability

  • Won’t be trapped as a Spammer due to the standard URL

  • Your recipients won’t know that you track them with Docsify

 

To do that and then check the Custom Domain with these steps:

1. Create a new record for your domain. The Name/Host should be for example track.yourdomain.com

2. Setup a DNS CNAME record with value tracking.docsify.net in your subdomain's DNS settings

3. Wait 20-25 minutes

4. Go to DNS_CHECKER

5. Enter your Domain Name, choose CNAME, and push Search

 

 

6. If you get results where CNAME is equal to tracking.docsify.net ,

then:

7. Wait for some time, and then back to the step 6 again.

8. Go to Docsify Admin Panel - Settings - Tracking -https://app.docsify.net/a/0/settings/tracking

9. Put there a subdomain you’ve created

10. Click “SAVE”
