Migrating from Legacy Domains to the Dedicated Domain: Changing Your Main Domain

In order to move from using the legacy domain and then, set up the Dedicated Domain for your campaigns, you need to mark the Dedicated Domain as a main domain in the Voluum platform. To do so, perform the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Voluum.

  2. Click the  icon (top right screen). Your account data view will show up.

  3. Go to the Domains tab. You will see all Voluum domains assigned to your account.

  4. Go to the DOMAINS CONFIGURATION section. Select the Dedicated Domain from the drop-down menu in the Main domain option.

  5. Click the Save button. Once you have done it, the domain's name will be propagated and all the links such as tracking URLs, click URLs, and campaign's URLs will be automatically changed replacing the previous domain's name to the newly defined one.

  6. This step is only required if you already defined URLs for your campaign's funnel before setting up the Dedicated Domain as the main domain in Voluum. If you have running ad campaigns, you need to change and verify the following points:

    1. Links in the affiliate network's configuration: You need to go to the affiliate network and update the tracking URLs there - replace the domain name with the newly set Dedicated Domain name.


      If you use the default Voluum domain, for example, for:

      • The postback URL: postback?cid={clickid}&payout={payoutid}

        it should be changed to:{clickid}&payout={payoutid}

      • The tracking pixel URL:[subid]&payout=[payoutid]

        it should be changed to:[subid]&payout=[payoutid]

      where is the Dedicated Domain

    2. Lander's configuration: If the lander is used in the campaign funnel, you need to go to your lander and replace the domain name in the click URL. Only then Voluum can properly handle the traffic. In a separate guide you will find how to do it in a way that it will allow you to use multiple different domains.

    3. Campaign's URL in the traffic source's configuration: Go to your traffic source and modify the campaign URL - change the domain name to the Dedicated Domain name.


      The campaign's URL with the default Voluum domain,{ad_id}&camp_id={camp_id}&ad_creative={ad_creative}&keyword={keyword}

      should be changed to:{ad_id}&camp_id={camp_id}&ad_creative={ad_creative}&keyword={keyword}

      where is the Dedicated Domain
