Voluum TRK Settings Domains

Registering visits and tracking conversions is the key functionality of the Voluum platform. To be able to do that, Voluum needs a domain to create all links needed for setting up a campaign funnel: campaign URL, click URL, postback URL and tracking pixel URL. Once the domain is replaced, visits and conversions can be registered in Voluum because all traffic, that you want to measure, is redirected through the Voluum platform.

Main domain

The main domain is used as a domain while generating a campaign URL, click URL, and tracking pixel URLs. In one campaign funnel all those URLs need to be set with the same domain. You can set up as a main domain either the Dedicated Domain or your custom domain added to the Voluum platform. Once you have selected the domain from the drop-down menu, the domain name will be automatically set up in all links: campaign URL, click URL, postback URL and tracking pixel URLs in the Voluum platform.

Dedicated Domain

Dedicated Domain is a top-level unique domain assigned to your account and provided by Voluum. The main advantage of using the Dedicated Domain is that the domain is not shared with other Voluum users. Every user has the different domain assigned what means that users build their own reputation and your traffic is not affected by other users. Additionally, setting up the Dedicated Domain is very simple and effortless, even if you have used the legacy domain till now.

SSL for Dedicated Domain

You can set the encryption connection between the server and your visitors' web browser by turning on Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for your Dedicated Domain. This one is particularly important when you need to set up a secure connection for your campaign funnels. The below guide instructs you how to enable the SSL certificate for your Dedicated Domain.

Custom Domains

If you need to run a live ad campaign with real money, it is highly recommended to add your own Custom Domain. The Custom Domain allows you to track traffic only from your campaigns regardless of other users activities. Even more, by adding the Custom Domain you can customize the campaign URL, click URL and tracking pixel URL selectively, per campaign(s), with a domain of your choice.

Legacy Domain (Deprecated)

For testing purposes you can always use the legacy domain offered by Voluum. However, you need to keep in mind that the legacy domain might be shared by other Voluum users, thus there is a risk that they may potentially get flagged by various third party services such as antivirus software or traffic sources. As a result, using the legacy domain may limit the traffic sources that you can run campaigns on. That is the reason why the legacy domain is a perfect solution when you're looking for doing a quick test with Voluum, but if you want to start tracking your campaigns, the best approach is to set up the Custom Domain or use the Dedicated Domain offered by Voluum. Moreover, the legacy domain is going to be soon deprecated and removed from Voluum.

Redirect Domain

Redirect Domain is the domain commonly known as a masking domain used to display its name while redirecting a visitor. Although, there is the default domain available, it is highly recommended to use the custom domain as the redirect domain in Voluum, in particular when you want to use the Double meta refresh option in the campaign’s settings. The Double meta refresh option allows you to load the page’s head twice, so you can, for example, hide the referrer’s data while redirecting visitors to your offer.

Moreover, mind that you can set up a secure connection for the Redirect Domain.

Root Domain

This setting determines what will be showed to a visitor without a campaign id assigned. If the visitor enters your Dedicated Domain into web browser's address bar, this person will by default be directed toward the 404 page. However, if your affiliate network platform requires you to show content relevant to the offer you are promoting, you can select the Redirect to target URL option and provide a URL to to web page that will be shown instead of the 404 page.
