MaxConv will assign an unique domain to you as default domain to let you get started quickly.
However, default domain is used by all MaxConv users, you will share the risk of being flagged when using default domain, We highly recommend adding a custom domain to generate tracking links.
There are two custom domain types in MaxConv:
Tracking Link domain is used in rotator links, campaign links and any other links that appear in browser address bar, it's usually used in redirection link.
Tracking Script domain is used to host universal track script, this type of domain is embedded in web page and won't appear in browser address bar.
Adding custom domain
To add a custom domain, go to Settings >> Domains
- Click the green "Add Domain" button, A creation form will show up.
Enter your domain name, e.g
link.mydomain.com, and choose the appropriate domain type
Go to your domain provider (or DNS provider such as route53), add
Arecord with this information.
Once you setup the DNS record, click the "Save" button.
Read following guide to learn how to create DNS record:
Global Anycast IP address
MaxConv tracking system use single one global anycast IP address as traffic entrypoint, one IP address does not mean that our servers only locate on single one region, when a user visits a global IP address, it is automatically resolved to the nearest data center in over 80 distinct locations worldwide, this is achieved via anycast technology, which allows a single IP address to have multiple routing paths.
This technology brings following benifits:
Faster speed, visitors always goes to nearest datacenter relative to that user,
Arecord resolving is also faster than
CNAMErecord basically saying "hey, I'm using their service", while
Arecord doesn't say much.
You also get rid of safari 17 blocking.

SSL certificate for custom domain
MaxConv provides free SSL certificates for all your custom domains, the CA of certificates is either Let's Encrypt or Google
After adding your domain to MaxConv, SSL certificate will be available within a few minutes, you will see green https icon in [HTTPS] column, a email notification will also being sent to your email address.
Custom Domain Removal
MaxConv periodically remove inactive custom domains, a inactive domain is a domain name that have no traffic for over 30 days.
If your previous domains are removed due to inactivity, you can add them again at any time.
1.Can I use Cloudflare to proxy MaxConv service?
In short, yes.
MaxConv is compatible with Cloudflare, our service will restore original visitor's IP.
However, if you turn on the
proxy status in Cloudflare, that means visitors will access like
visitors > Cloudflare proxy node > MaxConv global servers, as you can see, there is an extra layer between visitors and MaxConv global servers, which may slow down the speed a little bit.
Turning on the proxy status does have an advantage - your domain's IP will become Cloudflare's IP.
So it all depends on your needs.
2. Can I use same custom domain name to host universal tracking script on all landing pages?
Yes you can, the universal tracking script domain name can be different from landing page domain, rotator domain or s2s postback domain.
