Is It Possible To Use A Custom Domain Name On Hubpages?

With Hubpages being one of the most popular content adsense revenue sharing site which allows members to create free accounts – custom sub-domain names under, write contents and earn money using the different options including Google Adsense, Amazon, eBay and Hubpages Ad Program, there is a question which many have been asking and have continued to ask them selves whether there was by any chance a possibility of using a custom domain name on ones Hubpages profile so as to make one link from a sub-domain to a full domain name.

And just like I used to ask myself this very question although in a silent mode, I have from time to time received many emails from many of my Hubpages friends asking me about the same and which is why I decided to write this post as a way of responding to them at once other than having to type and re-type the same email to different people since each email comes at its own different time. Additionally, this article will too help others out there who might be wondering the possibility for the above although they might not have gotten a chance to ask it live.

One of the reason why many ask this basing on the comparisons many have sent me is because Blogger which is run by Google under the sub-domain does allow members to use their own custom domain names which can be bought directly through Bloggers interface or by simply pointing it to Blogger using the options provided. Bloggers offering of such  service makes many think that the same can be possible with Hubpages not knowing that Google and Hubpages are two different providers where by each of them has its own features.

Among the things I discovered after trying to test the above include the possibility of using your custom domain name as a redirection to your Hubpages URL which can be in form of either;

Masking – Where readers will visit your profile but in a masked URL.

Forwarding – Where your custom domain name will be forwarding to your Hubpages URL. It is also known as URL redirection.

How To Mask Your Hubpages URL With Your Custom Domain Name?

To mask your Hubpages, all you need is to purchase a domain name, go to domain control, chose masking, enter your Hubpages URL, save settings and you will be done.

This is similar to domain masking although for it, you choose the forward/redirection option other than masking.

Conclusion: While it may be possible to forward, mask and redirect your custom domain to your Hubpages, what you should know is that using a custom domain name is not currently a supported feature on Hubpages. The forwarding and masking are good if you intend to forward to your homepage other than your post pages. Lets hope that this feature will in the future be offered since there are many who are looking forward to welcome it.
