Understanding Web and Campaign Domains

There is no standard document for better understanding of Web and Campaign Domains. This includes definitions and procedure of setting up of web and campaign domains in NetSuite.



Anatomy of a URL:

http – protocol
www – sub-domain (can be anything)
netsuiteqa – domain
com – type of organization or geographic location (top-level domain)


Other Examples:


Domain Name System (DNS)

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical system for resolving domain names into IP addresses. In other words, it serves as the "phone book" for the Internet.
Companies use a DNS Publisher (ex: DomainSite or Go Daddy) to register a domain and define the IP it will translate to.

        For example: translates to or IP

Domain Site example:
Record Type     Record Host             Record Answer
CNAME             * Example:
Total DNS: (Available)
ARecord       @                 
CNAME         www                       @
CNAME         c                             @


 Set Up Domains in NetSuite
ONLY enter domains pointing to in DNS

Setup > Web Site > Domains


          Email Campaign

          Promotional URL

          Hosted Web Page

          Redirect URL


Setup Domains in NetSuite: Only enter domains pointing to in the DNS


Why Use Campaign Domain?

Campaign domains you enter replace any reference to that might appear in the email campaigns you send. You may find it in Setup > Marketing > Marketing Template > Marketing tab > Campaign Domain
