We’re leaving the “Beta tag” blanket at home. That’s right…thanks to your beta testing and feedback; we’ve now officially launched Windows Live Custom Domains. Our colleagues over in Messenger kicked off the Windows Live launch season last week. Along with the launch of OneCare and Live Favorites, we’re excited to continue the momentum. Windows Live is about the Web, the way you want it. Personalization is a key piece here, and let’s face it…your identity online is central to that. Custom Domains enables people to use all of the Windows Live and MSN services they want with an ID that’s as unique to them as they want it to be.
For those who aren’t familiar with Custom Domains, we provide free hosted e-mail for your domain. Let’s say you own the domain name, “wingtiptoys.com.” With Custom Domains, you get unlimited, free e-mail accounts at that domain. You can open accounts for firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc. Oh wait, did we mention that it’s free? This isn’t one of those “free during beta” trial offers. This is free for life.
