Settings

user
Required

The username you picked when you signed up for DNSPerch.

price
Default: ask

One of:

currency
Default: USD

The three-letter ISO 4217 currency code specifying which currency the price is in. For example, price:270000;currency:JPY will result in “¥270,000”.

language
Default: en

Language(s) to use for the landing page, or all to enable all available languages. If more than one language is given (separated by commas), the one that best matches the user's browser settings will be used; if none match then the first language in the list will be used.

Languages other than English are community translations provided by DNSPerch users. Contact us with corrections or for information on submitting translations for new languages.

Currently supported languages:

letsencrypt
Default: yes

Whether or not an SSL certificate should be obtained from Let’s Encrypt for the domain. If this is turned off, the domain will still be available via HTTPS, but a self-signed certificate will be used instead, causing the browser to display an error message. This does not enable settings such as HSTS, HPKP, or HTTP redirects, so it is safe to leave this enabled unless you have specific concerns about certificate issuance for your domain.

poweredby
Default: yes
Advanced Plan

Display “Powered by DNSPerch" at the bottom of the landing page.

ga_id
Advanced Plan

The property ID of the Google Analytics property to associate with this domain. If you don't know it, you can find the property ID with the GA Account Explorer. Using this setting will add the analytics.js tracking snippet to your landing page.

piwik_url
Advanced Plan

piwik_idsite
Advanced Plan

piwik_url is the base URL for your Piwik installation, such as http://analytics.example.com or https://www.example.com/piwik/. The beginning of the URL controls whether to use HTTP or HTTPS for your Piwik installation:

piwik_idsite is the site ID of the website you want to track visits for. To find the idSite for your website, see the Piwik FAQ entry How do I find the website ID?

Using these settings will add the Piwik tracking code to your landing page.
