    By extension, this means that Gmail, Hotmail or Ymail will not work.

  • Next, assign the generic contact via Settings > General, as Domain branding contact


  • When the contact is assigned, you will receive an email from Hostcontrol on the given email address to confirm your brand. Confirm this email by clicking the link, and approving the branding request on the web page


  • Once confirmed, your brand will now be used. You may also begin editing information in the templates. To see what you can change and edit, please see our detailed branding guide
