If you are a paid user, you can host email for domains you already own through ProtonMail. You can customize your own email domain while benefiting from ProtonMail’s security, privacy, and ease of use. 

For example, if you own the domain, you can set your ProtonMail account to send and receive emails with addresses, such as

How to connect your custom domain with ProtonMail

  1. Upgrade your existing ProtonMail account to any of our paid plans.

  2. You must have access to your domain’s DNS records. Your domain provider will be able to help you find your domain’s DNS records. Once you have the records, you can change them and point them towards ProtonMail. 

Note that you will not be able to add addresses from domains you do not own or control, such as .edu or .gov domains.

If you do not have your own domain, you can buy one through domain registrars, such as or Learn more about setting up a custom domain here

  1. Kasper

    I would love to be updated on this feature

  2. Shamas

    I would be interested in this too and would consider it for my domain.

  3. HC

    Up-vote for this.

  4. Andy

    I’d definitely port my family’s domain over (6-7 users) if the price was affordable. In case a couple of them aren’t on board though, it’d be useful to allow e-mail forwarding, just as most hosting services would. Obviously they’d forfeit encryption and privacy and the whole purpose of protonmail. But it would allow them to phase into protonmail on their terms, on their schedule. It’s not easy sometimes to switch e-mail addresses, particularly personal e-mail addresses.

  5. Alain Verglas

    I have the same request of a forwarding facility inside Proton Mail, in order to share a domain with other users of my family.
    It would be nice to know if this improvement is planned and if a date of implementation has been fixed.

  6. Mortamur Gumple

    A domain hosting service would be fantastic, please let me know when this product is available.

  7. Edward

    This would be a fantastic addition and next on my wishlist!

  8. Svein Daniel

    I’d love to be updated on the progress of this :-)

  9. Scott

    Upvote! Please notify me when available.

  10. D Spaulding

    I would like to be updated on Custom Domains.

    Thank you!

  11. Al Laique

    This would be great specially for exchanging encrypted emails when exchanging or setting up users to exchange scientific research and conducting consulting business in infrastructure defense.

  12. Chris

    I have a new Domain that I would would like to use with this service. If you need a tester let me know.

  13. David McWhorter

    Please let me know when this is available!

  14. me

    It should be free

  15. Tyson

    This feature would be very attractive to me to upgrade to a premium account. It would also be great if I could have a number of names to receive and possibly send emails from all using the same inbox.

  16. Al

    Definitely a winner if priced right.

  17. frank

    please make it possible :)

  18. Deb

    Yes please!

  19. NAme

    mid to late 2015!? finally a potential mail service hosted in swiss and it does not support custom domains!

  20. Greg

    I wouldn’t consider paying for a service that didn’t provide this feature. Looking forward to this being available very soon.

  21. Isabelle

    Please keep me posted about this feature, I would like to know when it will be available.

  22. Jason

    Please include me when sending out information on this! I would absolutely port my immediate family over to this service if it was reasonably affordable for 4-7 users.

  23. Chris

    If there’s an ETA for this, I’d wait for it rather than switching my email to another host.

  24. Fetze

    Yep, this would be a sweet feature!

  25. Bob


  26. Marc Mercer

    Definitely interested in this, can’t wait for it. Want to get off google for good….

  27. Pilskalns

    Yes, the pricing should be also suitable for individuals and small teams. Maybe protonmail can host or forward also regular addresses. For example, if I have a small team with 3 members and we have corresponding between us and others in secure manner. But for public address, like we would like to receive and send emails without passwords like newsletters, press releases, inquiries, offers etc. I know, I can have multiple sending mail hosts, but not receiving.

  28. Tom

    This would be an excellent service !!

  29. Peter M.

    please add it

  30. Nammut

    Obviously a feature needed for many (including me).
    If you want to have a leg up in your offering though, please make sure to properly support IPv6 if it does not already. Especially mail seems to lag behind alot on this.

  31. leboural

    Yes, need it !

  32. albatr0ss

    Yes would like this feature very much.

    Now that I have access to may protonmail on my mobile devices I’d switch all email accounts over to protonmail

  33. John

    If this was priced reasonably, I would move my family domain over in a heartbeat!

  34. Jeff

    Yes please

  35. Nate

    Definitely! Going to be keeping an eye out for this feature… If it is reasonably priced, I will very much consider moving my mail hosting to you.

  36. Freek

    The price will be an important factor, any hints?

    Also, I understand your encryption will make IMAP impossible (right?) but will there be Linux/osX/Windows local apps then? Ways to use protonmail with a larger spous approval factor than the webclient en double password? Or does this defy the purpose? I’m asking because my wife shares my domain but not my “paranoia”. Or can I forward just her email to another service (like my own mail server)?

    Many questions, I understand you can’t serve everyone perfectly but I I’d like it if the costs structure is finely grained so that I can pay separate for custom domain, more space, and whatever more will follow. It would be nice if enthusiast like me are not forced to the same package as companies who have larger budgets :)

  37. Michael Shea

    Please let me know when this feature is available. Definitely interested!

  38. RT

    Very interested in this! This is the final string holding me to gmail! Very much look forward using protonmail for my custom domain email. Please make priority.

    As we enter the September with only a few months left in the year is it possible to get an updated timeline on this feature / if it is still scheduled for late 2015 or if its been moved to the new year. Would love to start planning my migration.

  41. JR

    Agree with above regarding an update on this and some idea of pricing. This is all that is holding me back from switching to ProtonMail and have been waiting for this feature for a long time :-)

    Would be great if you can provide this feature ASAP. Would immediately move two of my emails here. Willing to pay.

  82. Rembert

    I’m still on GMail but with the termination of the SafeHarbor act and the ever existing Patriot/Freedom act I’d prefer to move away to a European mail solution which does support my own mail domains: commercial ones – I’d pay for it. But also for a domain I use for a foundation – I’d rather not pay for this.

    This is an awesome feature but it’s terribly missing the possibility to have multiple different users that “share” a custom domain.
    For example:, etc.. each user with its own password and Inbox.

    “Currently, if you add multiple addresses from a custom domain, all the mail will be delivered to your one upgraded inbox.” Looking to move to ProtonMail but not until this is changed. I need multiple mailboxes with the same custom domain for family members. Until then I will keep my trial account open.

  170. Steven Miklovic

    I wish I had known that Custom Domain use is basically just an alias at this point. This is only good for a ‘vanity’ domain for one person — if you have a second user then they lose their mailbox. I did not understand this before I paid for an annual upgrade.

    Please add proper custom domain functionality ASAP, thank you.

  171. ProtonMail Support

    We are working on adding sub users feature together with the business premium plan.

  172. DrKleinfuss

  183. Louis

    Are there any details you can reveal comfortably about the new feature?

    e.g. Will the ability to have sub users on one custom domain be available to PLUS customers or is this going to be a feature only for ‘Business’ customers such that those with PLUS accounts will have to upgrade?

    We’re (our family) anxiously waiting on this feature. ;-)

    I’d love to use the custom domain for me and my family – my daughter will soon be at an age where she’ll require email and I do not want to start her off on gmail or hotmail! So we’re not strictly speaking business users, but would require the ability to use one domain across multiple user/protonmail accounts. I hope you’ll consider releasing a plan that is suited for this type of scenario (i.e. a very limited number of users), i.e. a “business plan” for up to 5 users for example.

  194. Alex Velasquez

    Could we crowdfund your effort to implement Business accounts faster? I am ready to pledge $100 so that this feature is implemented faster (say by end of October). And then pay for the business account. With this money you could hire more coders, engineers and staff to implement this feature faster.

  195. NL

    Re: business or sub-accounts using a custom domain:
    Will it be an upgrade option on an existing paid account or will we need to create an entirely different account to have multiple users under one custom domain? I just need to be clear on what the payment schedule will be to make plans for this.

    Thank you!

  196. John

    “Business accounts will allow multiple users to use the same domain for their email address.”

    Please put this feature on the top of your priority list! I will switch all e-mails of my organization to proton as soon as this is possible!

    Is the way to upgrade my protonmail account only by adding custom domain? I don’t need more storage, or labels.

  202. Graham Anderson

    One thing to consider might be split delivery. So if you have multiple addresses on a domain, but only want one to be a fully encrypted ProtonMail account, any addresses not matching are forwarded on to another service. Google offers this, which lets me use a full featured paid account with Google Apps for Domains, while forwarding other mailboxes to my cheap hosting provider. Their FAQ can be found here:

  203. Dav

    Who do you use for DNS resolvers?

    Who does my super secure mail host trust?

  204. ProtonMail Support

    At ProtonMail, we run our own DNS resolvers.

  205. freek

    To explain a bit further: At the moment my wife and I both use the same domain and have mailboxes with our own first name before the @, is this possible with protonmail? If so, the bridge option took me over the line and I’m signing up right now.

  206. freek

    Ok, just heard from someone else on a forum that the addresses are aliases, not real stand-alone mailboxes. Only “users” get their own mailbox. This would mean for me and my wife (and possible children) I need 2 (or more) users so a least 2 plus plans or professional with multiple users (I guess that last option because otherwise we are not on the same domain). Sorry that is just a bit too steep for 2+ users with my own domain, compared to also being able to have 2 free accounts.

    I’d love it if there would be a family plan, 4-6 mailboxes, 1 domain, a couple of GB combined would be enough. Say 4-6 euros a month? We’re not big users :). I’ve got a good dutch provider now, 3 euros a month for 3 mailboxes. Would pay more for Proton, but not 10x :)

  207. ProtonMail Support

    At the moment, only the Professional and Visionary plans support sub-users. Please note that to create sub-users, you will need to add a custom domain first, as sub-users cannot have addresses.

  208. Anonymous

    Same problem. We have our own domain with one adress for each family’s member , me, my wife and our 2 children. We’d like to have by protonmail something like : dad@my.domain, mam@my.domain, child1@my.domain and child2@my.domain. For us, the bussiness plan or visionnary are too expensive.

Is there any way to migrate all my mails and mail account folders to the new custom domain? How would I do that? I do not want to lose everything by just deleting the old custom domain and setting up a new one. Neither do i want to add a second custom domain, as thats a waste of money as I am terminating the old domain strtaight after.

    If you remove the existing domain, the custom domain addresses will become orphaned and unusable, but you can still read all existing messages:

    If you want to remove the orphaned addresses, you will need to delete all messages for those addresses. You can use the Import/Export tool to export the messages prior to deleting them:
