Setting up a custom domain

The Custom Domain feature "masks" the URL of your Gumroad profile page with your own unique domain. So, instead of directing customers to "" or "" you can send them to "" 

The feature does not allow the audience to access their content through your own URL - they still have to go to their downloads through a Gumroad download link.
