Custom Domains & Email Addresses

In order to comply with email marketing policies, such as the CAN-SPAM act, custom domain email addresses are required to send your automated emails and email campaigns.

Creating a custom domain email address to use for your sender profile, will require you to purchase a domain from a domain provider such as GoDaddy, NameCheap, Hover, Google, HostGator, Bluehost, or DreamHost.

  1. Select a domain provider such as the ones listed above.
  2. In the search field for domains, type in the desired domain name; this is to ensure the domain is available for purchase. The domain name should be related to your product/niche as you will not be able to change this later.
    • For Example: If someone ran a Pizza shop called Joe’s Pizza Place, they would want to create a domain like joespizzaplace.com if it was available for purchase.
  3. Purchase the domain, and proceed to set up a custom domain email. You can find the walkthroughs about how to do this on a specific domain provider below. If you do not see your domain provider mentioned, please reach out to their support team.

Please Note: You will not be able to use a general web service email such as Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail. You must use a custom domain email or forwarding service provided by your domain host.

TL;DR

Purchase domain → create a custom domain email address
