Landing pages are stand-alone web pages that usually have a single function which is separate from the rest of the web site. You might use them to encourage customers or clients to sign up for your newsletter, distribute coupon codes, or to advertise an app. You can link to them from emails and embed surveys or forms in them. Landing Pages are available to customers who have purchased the Business license or above.
Your CNAMEs and Domain records also need to be set up before creating your Landing Page.
Landing Pages are not currently mobile responsive out of the box. You can find a blog post here that offers some guidance on setting up responsive design.
