We are in the process of updating our corporate website… but in the meantime we would like to replace our existing 3-page website with one (much more focused) Unbounce page.
We currently have a page using a subdomain (try.mycompany.com), which we’ll continue to use for our landing pages connected to different campaigns. Now we would like to create a page for our main domain (which is currently occupied by a custom built site) at www.mycompany.com.
Here’s my plan:
- Add a new domain for
www.mycompany.comto our unbounce account. (I’m assuming that each domain or subdomain counts as a separate domain.)
- Edit the CNAME record for
www.mycompany.comto point to unbouncepages.com per
- Create new page to use www.mycompany.com domain.
Is there anything tricky related to updating our main domain to point to an unbounce page? There are a few few backlinks pointing to our domain, but none of the sub-pages. Additionally, we’re not worried about SEO because our current page doesn’t rank very well. Our unbounce landing page is more concise and more focused than our old site – thus the update.
Any gotchas I need to look out for the conversion from custom-built site to unbounce page on existing domain?
