So in order to achieve this you will need to do the following steps:

  1. Purchase a new domain.
  2. Forward that domain.
  3. Redirect the site URL to that domain

1. Purchasing the domain

To have a standalone domain with an SEO mask, you'll need a registar where you'll keep your DNS zone files & domain purchase agreements.  

We recommend Godaddy.com.  

Godaddy has provided some simple tutorials on how to add an A record to your domain.

In the DNS Zone File of the domain you purchased, add the following A Record: 

Type: A
Name: @
Value: 167. 114.133.65
TTYL: Automatic (or 600 seconds)

2. For all other registars, add an A record to your domain: 

Our domain manager in your AgentFire website allows you to convert any page into a fully SEO masked individual domain, while allowing it to exist directly on a URL within your site, at the same time!

To get started, purchase a new domain name from your current registrar. 

Example: 2143ExampleStreet.com

Locate the DNS Zone File, and add a new A record, pointing to our IP Address.  

Type: A
Name: @
Value: 167. 114.133.65
TTYL: Automatic (or 600 seconds)

Once you have your domain name pointing correctly, it's time to make a simple set of adjustments in your AgentFire admin area to ensure your preferred page is displayed on the domain you just purchased. 

Obtaining your URL:

Login to your AgentFire site.  We'll be heading to the redirect manager in order to point your domain to the URL you want to use.  

Before we do that though, you'll need to confirm and have handy the page URL you need to mask.  

Copy the URL of the page or leave this tab open and available for copying from.  You will need both the page URL and the new domain name in order to complete your new domain.  

3. Adding an SEO mask in your redirect manager: 

Now that the purchased domain is pointing to AgentFire services, and the page URL has been confirmed, it's time to add an SEO mask in the redirect manager in order to complete the setup. 

Navigate to: 

Settings > AgentFire Settings > Redirect Manager

If this is your first visit to the redirect manager, you will likely not have any other redirects in this location. 

Select Add Row to enter your first redirect. 

Select from the dropdown list of options
Add as Domain with SEO Mask (no iframe)

In the From Field: 

Your originating domain will need to be entered.  It should be an http domain.  Be sure there isn't a backslash at the end of the domain name.  Lowercase letters only!

For clarity: 

  • http only
  • do not use canonical url with a / at the end
  • lowercase letters only

Example:  http://123examplestreet.com
Notes:  (this is not an SSL enabled tutorial, instructions differ if you are looking to also provide SSL support for the page on the single domain.). 

In the To Field: 

Paste your page URL directly from the tab you copied from.  This will be an HTTPS url, and it will be canonical, so it will display a / at the end.  

Example: https://dave.agentfire2.com/contact-us/

With your From and To fields verified and correct, click the publish/update button to save your changes.  

Example page with SEO masking: https://agentfirehomevalues.com/

That's it! View your page on it's new domain name!
