When using a custom domain for sending email campaigns that can increase trust and credibility. You want prospects and clients to see an email address that matches your brand, such as email@example.com. It makes it easier for them to recognize your business and may improve deliverability.
Getting a custom domain
If you don't already have your own email domain we recommend registering for one. It's very easy to find and register your own domain using a domain registration service such as GoDaddy, Network Solutions, Google Domains or Register.com, to name a few.
Validating your domain
Once you have your custom domain you'll need to follow the steps below to set up and validate your domain to work with Life Happens Pro.
1. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know you'd like to send from your custom domain. Be sure to include the custom domain in the email.
2. We'll send you a unique SPF record that will need to be updated in your domain registrar.
