What are Vanity Domains?
Most Anytime Mailbox partners know that every ATMB account comes with a free anytimemailbox.com subdomain, including a branded landing page (i.e. greenofficesupply.anytimemailbox.com). Along with all the benefits of having a personalized site to promote your virtual mailbox services, partners are only charged $3 for each renter who signs up through this free domain.
According to your feedback, we know that many operators would prefer not having “anytimemailbox.com” as part of their website domain because it can distract from their own brand.
However, did you know that you can take this personalization one step further?
Solution: Fully customizable Vanity Domains
We actually offer two vanity domain options that can help increase the personalization of your ATMB site:
Sub-domain: Create a new hostname for an existing domain that you already own using whatever words or phrases you prefer (i.e. virtualmail.greenofficesupply.com or digitalmailbox.greenofficesupply.com).
Full Domain: Simply buy and use a new domain (i.e. www.shiptodayvirtualmail.com).
Because we have to procure an SSL Certificate for your particular domain, and may have to allocate an additional IP address, we charge an annual fee of $100 for each vanity domain.
Three easy steps to set up your Vanity Domain:
- If you don’t already own the domain, purchase it from any domain registrar.
- Contact ATMB support about the annual $100 fee.
- Add a DNS entry for your new domain as follows:
- Type: CNAME
- Hostname: The hostname of your domain
- Value: myrenters.anytimemailbox.com
NOTE: Your vanity domain will not work until Anytime Mailbox has completed their work to link your renter portal with your domain.
After you have submitted the details above, your site will be up and running in just two to three business days! Taking advantage of this vanity domain feature is a great way to put your brand first in the mind of your customer.
