How to use a custom domain?


I have just upgraded to Throttle Pro and would like to be able to set up a custom domain, however it doesn't seem to work.

Do you have to own a domain to be able to set up a custom domain? ie. do I need to pay for a domain subscription as well as the throttle pro subscription?

Hey Oscar, ultimately you would need your own domain in order to set up the custom domain features, although keep in mind that as a Pro user you'll still be able to take control of shorter addresses when we roll that out, even without a custom domain. Custom domains aren't too expensive to own (approx. < 15$ per year, depending on the host), although I completely understand your reluctance to do so.

Let me know if I can do anything else for you.

Thanks for the info. So I decided that I would buy a custom domain (I found the one I wanted for £7.50) and have now set up my custom domain with throttle. I think it's excellent but I do have one question:

Is it now possible to send emails using my generated throttle email addresses? 


It's not possible to send emails using generated Throttle addresses as of right now, even with a custom domain, but you can always forward those emails to your inbox and reply from there. However, that would mean that the "From: " end would show your real address and not your generated address. 

Okay, thanks for your help! I LOVE the service by the way. You have a great team! Keep it up! :D

Thank you so much!
