Set Up Permitted Domains for Deep Linking

If you want partners to be able to deep link to specific pages on your website, you must provide with the domains that partners can send traffic to ( refers to these as "permitted domains"). You should do this regardless of whether you know what specific domains you want traffic arriving at or not.

Using non-permitted domains in deep links

If partners don't use the permitted domains you provide in their deep links, all traffic they drive using that link will be sent to a generic page with no options to head to your website. If you aren't sure what domains to list here, reach out to your teammates that manage your website. If they aren't sure or if there are no specific domains they come back with, you should enter the defaults (which are provided below).

Set permitted domains

  1. From the left navigation bar, select [Menu] → Settings.

  2. On the right, under Tracking, select Gateway.

  3. Next to Deep Linking, select [Edit].

  4. Toggle on Allow Partners to deep link to specific pages on my site.

  5. Under Permitted Domains, enter your permitted domains. Use commas to separate domains. Do not use spaces after commas.

    • If you don't have specific domains to add, enter the following default domains:



      [Your website domain].[Your website top-level domain]

      *.[Your website domain].[Your website top-level domain]


  6. Select Save.

Permitted domain formatting

If you do have your own permitted domains to enter here, follow these formatting guidelines:

  • Do not include any paths or slashes (/) in your permitted domain. Exclude anything including and after the slash following the URL's domain.

  • If a URL might include a subdomain (e.g., www.) when used to deep link, you must include both versions of the URL. In this case, follow the format that the default permitted domains (above) use.

  • Don't include the default permitted domains (above) if you provide your own specific domains.

Common partner-facing error messages and how to fix them
