In isave.DIALOG you can create personalized landing pages which the recipient can visit via a personalized URL to the page. This is called Print PURL because you can use it as a merge value within isave.DIALOG print templates, allowing them to read and write in a browser as opposed to our common PURL links we use from isave.eDM which is often a very long and “unreadable” URL.
To set up a print template with isave.PrintPURL
Start by registering your domain eg. Helloisave.com
Tip: If you’d like to see what wondering domain names are available visit a domain and web hosting site such as www.123-reg.co.uk and register the name there.
Setting up DNS records
1 Post a CNAME record of type *. domainname.com pointing to your domain.

Eg. Helloisave.com => 18.104.22.168
