Private Label Links in GreenRope
It’s time to take your company branding to the next level in 2020 by private labeling your links in GreenRope. Have you noticed that all files, links, and images stored within your Media Library have the .greenrope.com label connected? Let’s change that!
As a GreenRope subscriber, it’s possible to private label all of your links to route to your domain instead. This quick article walks you through private labeling your entire account by updating your main domain to hide any reference of GreenRope.
Why would you want to do this?
By default, when you send an email out, links are sent through the domain app.greenrope.com.
By using your own private domain, https://action.yourdomain.com, you can private label these links. Meaning, all links sent through your GreenRope account will not have the GreenRope name associated with them. This is especially important since many browsers are now blocking third party cookies. Private labeling your links enables first party cookies, ensuring all your links and images are working and trackable when viewed in various browsers.

IMPORTANT: You will need to update your DNS first so that the action.yourdomain.com has a "CNAME" record pointing to action.stgi.net.
This is usually done with your domain registrar (e.g., GoDaddy, NetSol, etc).
Step One: Adding Your Private Label Link
In your active GreenRope account, hover over the “Settings” drop-down and select “Account.” Below the Data Settings heading, add the custom domain you want to use for the link references.
Once you enter a domain here, GreenRope will automatically create an SSL certificate for your business within 24 hours. While your links propagate, you can continue on to step two and three.
Step Two: Adding Records into Your DNS Server
To validate the web traffic to your new domain links, you’ll need to add two records into your domain registrar (e.g., GoDaddy, NetSol, etc). This is where you purchased the domain to verify the connection. Here, add two IP addresses for your domain: 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, adding both as "A" records. This allows your web traffic to load-balance across two of GreenRope’s servers, increasing reliability.
Step Three: Update Current Links And Tracking
It’s the small details that make all the difference. Private labeling your links is a great way to build consistency across each communication channel, create a seamless experience, and keep your brand name at the forefront!
