Professional Plan

If you are on the Beacon Professional Plan then you can use one custom domain for your account. This is useful if you only plan on publishing Smart PDFs for your own website.

If you are on the Beacon Agency Plan then you can use as many custom domains for your account as you need. This is useful if you are publishing Smart PDFs on behalf of multiple clients.
