I found this interesting work from Phil Kurth & Jason Schuller and thought of sharing it with you.
These guys have been brewing this plugin in the last few months, teasing its unique functionality of mapping custom domains to your WordPress pages which got my attention. And thankfully, the plugin, which they named WP Landing Kit, is finally now on its initial rollout.
Being a WordPress developer myself, I sometimes get confronted with situations where our client wants a separate sales pages for her eBooks and make them accessible in another domain. Yep, she has an existing WordPress site and wanted to clone the overall look-and-feel of her site for her eBooks but, for a separate domain. Which means another cost for the web hosting + setup fees just for her sales pages.
Now, WP Landing Kit wants to change that. Rather than doing a separate install, you can just create your landing page on your main WP site and just assign a domain name for that particular page. And WP Landing Kit will cleverly serve that page as content to that add-on domain.
Here’s a short explainer video how it works
As mentioned in that video, WP Landing Kits requires a hosting environment where you can add additional domains aka add-on domains. Also, you’ll need to update your DNS and add A Record for the new domain.
While not everyone will likely need it, WP Landing Kit is an extremely powerful tool especially for those who sell digital products like eBooks, apps, tickets, etc. There’s no need for a separate WordPress installation. Just create your marketing pages and assign a unique domain to it.
