New CAKE Client Document

Welcome to CAKE!  To expedite building your CAKE instance, please provide your CAKE dedicated trainer the following items:

1. Admin Domain

The admin domain is the URL for you as well as your clients to log into CAKE. Upon logging in, each entity will be directed to their respective portals.

Example domains: domain.COM or partner.domain.com

Restrictions: Your admin and tracking domain CANNOT contain the word “cake” in either the root domain or subdomain.

2. Tracking Domain

The tracking domain is the URL used for your affiliate tracking links, conversion pixels, and server posting links.

Example domains: domaintrk.com or domain.NET

Restrictions: Your admin and tracking domain CANNOT contain the word “cake” in either the root domain or subdomain.

NOTE:

We highly advise against using subdomains for your tracking domain. Using a subdomain will make your root domain susceptible to potential issues like domain blacklisting.

 

3. DNS for Admin & Tracking Domains

If you've selected a subdomain for your admin domain, CAKE will provide a CNAME. Otherwise, please place the following name servers for your admin domain:

Notify your training manager that these items have seen set. When propagated, SSL certificates will be purchased on your behalf.

NOTE: Once you've placed the name servers and the SSL certificates have been purchased, you will not be able to change your admin or tracking domain. Changing your admin or tracking domain will incur a fee of $250 per domain.
