Configure Your Custom Domain


Registering your Custom Domain will create a "white label" effect so that only your domain is seen by the user viewing your Simplebooklet work, while the Simplebooklet domain is hidden. This is excellent for brand promotion and makes your customers feel more comfortable, as only material you authorize can be served from your domain. You will create a new url where the "www" part of your domain "" is changed to something like "booklet" so you can use "" (or any other variation on "booklet" you choose) to server your Simplebooklet content.
