Initial Domain Setup

Before you set up Google Analytics on a page on your website we need to set up that page so that it can point to the New/Mode servers. The process is a bit technical and can take about 3 weeks but it's painless, we promise!

Before you start:

  1. You need access to your organization's domain's DNS records
  2. You need at least 3 weeks of time before your planned launch date, as this process requires some help from our Development team and they need to be able to fit this work into their development schedule.

You can use a root domain or a subdomain for this process.

A subdomain usually looks like a section of a main (root) domain, and has its own URL. For example, New/Mode's root domain is on the URL, and the subdomain where you're reading this article is on the URL


  1. (Optional) Create a subdomain within your organization's domain to host the web page where your action will be embedded.
  2. Contact our Support team and send us:
    - the URL of the web page where your action will be embedded (can be the subdomain you created earlier or the URL of your organization's root domain), and
    - the URL of the action you're looking to add Google Analytics to.
  3. We'll pass those details to our Development team, and after they've done some work we'll send you a short DNS configuration file. You'll need to add that file to your root domain's DNS as a CNAME record within 72 hours, and let us know when you're done.
  4. Our Development team will do a bit more work on their end, then we'll send you a domain name. You'll need to update your root domain's DNS mapping with a new line specifying your domain or subdomain URL as the Host and the domain you just received from us as the Address.
  5. We'll give you a new code for you to embed your action. After that you'll be ready to set up Google Analytics!
