Medium, the minimalist blogging platform, is taking on WordPress and Squarespace with a simple but important new feature: custom domain support.
It’s unclear exactly how much Medium wants to open up custom domains to the public though. The company says it’s working out the kinks before a wider roll-out, and offers a form for publications interested in signing up for their own domain.
On the other hand, the company ascertains it does not intent to extend custom domains to user profiles.
While this changes nothing about the content itself, it does place it on a platform that many find to be easier to read with an intriguing inline commenting system. At least URLs will be easier to type now.
