One of the most fun parts of joining a new app is picking a unique username or handle. Whether you go with @Josh, @DopeRhymeSpitter, or @KittenLover1948 is entirely up to you.
Bublup users can easily tag you in comments by username, but there’s another cool name to claim on the app. You’re able to create a unique URL, aka a custom domain name, which you can use for all the rolls you create.
Let’s take a look at how you can snatch up your personalized roll domain (or three roll domains if you’re a premium user) today!
Making a Bublup roll is an awesome way to share links, documents, photos, videos, and any other files from one of your folders, in one beautiful web page. They’re great for sharing trip itineraries, creative portfolios, client information, and so much more.
When you first make a roll, the URL isn’t unique. It’ll look something like this: https://rolls.bublup.com/view/005-w-f6aed4d0-d1c2-4e22-9318-ff610a059e72.
After utilizing a custom roll domain and easy link, it can look something like this: https://rolls.bublup.com/rosemary/hawaii-trip.
To set up your roll domain, navigate to My Info, then go to “Rolls” on the left toolbar.
From there, input the roll domain you’d like to claim. Choose wisely! Roll domains cannot be edited or deleted, so be mindful of the one (or ones) you choose for yourself.
Once you create it, you’ll be able to use it on any roll you create or change any existing roll’s URL to reflect this new roll domain.
When creating a new roll, add a custom domain and easy link to your roll by selecting the “easy link” tab in the roll creation prompt. If you’ve already created a roll, go to settings in the roll’s menu, and next to “Manage Roll URLs,” select “edit.” Choose “Add URL” and pick whatever available easy link you’d like!
Using roll domains and easy links provides an extra touch of personalization and professionalism.
For example, if you’ve been using a roll to showcase your portfolio, just think about how much more identifiable and clean the URL will look when you’ve customized it.If your roll domain is your brand name or actual name, clients and potential employers can easily see it belongs to you. To take it one step further, you can change your easy link to “portfolio” or “showcase” to signify what the roll’s about.
Beyond the professional world, easy links make your URLs simple to remember and better to share with your friends and family. Let’s say you created a roll of photos capturing your Grandma’s 90th birthday party. When you use a roll domain and easy link that’s recognizable by the whole family, it’ll be easy for everyone to find it whenever they’d like to relive the party again or share it with someone else.
If one roll domain name isn’t enough, there’s good news! Premium Bublup users have access to three personalized roll domain names. Having separate roll domains can be helpful for those who want a separate personal roll domain and work roll domain, or those working with multiple brands, to name a few examples.
To create multiple roll domains, just go through the same process of creating your first one. You’ll be able to see all the roll domains under your account in My Info.
