Subdomains / private spaces are now live

We've just enabled the subdomains / private spaces feature, which let's you create a subdomain on, where only you and your team can edit pads. Signup here.

Please consider it beta quality for the moment. Also, we're using CAcert for SSL - therefore to be able to use this feature, you need to install the CAcert Root Certificates (else, you'll get scary warnings).


  1. Any plans on allowing users to download and install your app on their own servers? Would make it much more desirable.

  2. Shade: you can get our code from

    We're not currently planning to do any additional support for hosting it on your own, but it should work.

  3. It would be really cool if you allowed publishing documents as read-write for the team and read-only for the public

  4. Hi there! I'm a big Etherpad fan. Thanks for the implementation over here!
    1. Are you offering these private spaces for free? (if so, wow!)
    2. Can you write a blog post that explains whether you've made any special tweaks to the code? (because it's tough to see quickly at github)

  5. @Brian - Thanks for your feedback!
    1 - yes, we're offering subdomain spaces for free.
    2 - we will probably announce new features on this blog. A general overview of our changes might also come, but no promises on that ;)

  6. I created a private space but do the students who I invite via email addresses have to be signed in users to come into that pad? In the end, I had to make it public so they could enter from the internet rather than an invited guest.

  7. @testeach: well, private spaces are ... private. If you want completely public stuff, then yes, you have to make the pad public. Or just use a public pad on

  8. Hi. Sorry for posting here -- I can't find anywhere else for feedback.

    I'm loving titanpad, but have one small wish -- headings. I use headings a lot to denote the structure of a document, so only having BOLD and italic is a little bit limiting. Can we have support for H1 H2 H3. Or at least some way of having larger and smaller text.


  9. can i remove an old pad after i'm done with it? just to help you guys keep server resources...


  10. @Jim There's also

    Regarding your feature request - if any of the EtherPad-based projects extends the JS editor in a sane way we'll think about it, but don't hold your breath.


    No, there's no delete. Don't worry, we've got lots of room to spare ;)
