How To Link Mailerlite Subdomain To Hostgator

If you want to link your MailerLite subdomain to HostGator, there are a few steps you need to follow. Firstly, you need to create a CNAME record in your HostGator account.

Creating a CNAME Record

To create a CNAME record, log in to your HostGator account and go to the Domains section. Click on the domain you want to add the CNAME record for and then select the Advanced DNS Records option.

In the Add Record section, select CNAME from the Type drop-down menu. In the Name field, enter the subdomain you want to link to MailerLite. For example, if you want to link to MailerLite, enter “mail” in the Name field.

In the Value field, enter the CNAME record provided by MailerLite. This can be found in your MailerLite account under Settings > Domain Verification. Copy and paste the CNAME record into the Value field and click on the Add Record button to save the changes.

Verifying the CNAME Record

Once you have added the CNAME record, it may take up to 48 hours for the changes to propagate across the internet. To verify that the CNAME record has been successfully added, go back to your MailerLite account and click on the Verify Domain button under Settings > Domain Verification.

If the verification is successful, you will see a green checkmark next to the domain name. If there are any issues with the CNAME record, MailerLite will provide you with an error message explaining what needs to be fixed.


Linking your MailerLite subdomain to HostGator is a simple process that can be completed in just a few steps. By following the instructions outlined above, you should be able to successfully link your subdomain and start using MailerLite for your email marketing campaigns.
