Additional tracking domains

Visit and conversion tracking is the key functionality of the PeerClick platform. To be able to do that, PeerClick needs to replace a domain in links that you use in your campaigns, click, and tracking pixel URLs, with a tracking domain set up in the PeerClick settings. Once the domain is replaced, visits and conversions can be registered in PeerClick because all traffic, that you want to measure, is redirected through the PeerClick platform.

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, click and tracking pixel URLs selectively, per campaign(s), with a domain of your choice.

Furthermore, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is supported for the Custom Domain setup, thus within it you can set up a secure connection (https://) for your campaign URLs. However, you need to take into account that the SSL option is turned off by default and you need to turn it on manually.

  • To migrate from a legacy domain to the Dedicated Domain, go to the The Dedicated Domain Setup article.
  • To start using the secure connection for your campaign URLs, follow the steps in the The Custom Domain Setup: Enabling SSL for a Custom Domain guide.

CNAME-record

In order to add a domain you will need CNAME-record on the domain REDIRECT.YOUTRACKDOMAIN.COM.

Ok, so what is the Main Domain option?

The main domain is used as a domain while generating campaign, click, 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 PeerClick platform. Once you have selected the domain from the drop-down menu, the domain name will be automatically set up in all campaign, click, tracking pixel URLs in the PeerClick platform. In this case, the legacy domains are used as backup domains that allow to quickly substitute your main domain in case it has been compromised.

For example, if you have selected the custom domain, http://track.mydomain.com, as the main domain, the custom domain will be set to the campaign, click, and tracking pixel URLs as the domain:
