Until now, I thought new SE sites can't get a custom domain. But, look at an Area 51 proposal: Startup Business. It's in beta. Now, click the visit button to visit the beta site. It has got a custom domain host, custom brand & description. How?

    Probably related to: It's a part of OnStartups.com, a blog on entrepeneurship by Dharmesh Shah.

    I'll now point to the following header text on Area51: This site was seeded with content from answers.onstartups.com, a Stack Exchange 1.0 site.

  • @sixlettervariables as was judaism.stackexchange.com but its domain name is not used (mi.yodeya.com) because of stack exchange rules. (meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/q/951/719)

  • @amanaPlanaCAnalPAnaMA: Startup Business has been in beta for almost a year longer than Judaism. When was that "rule" issued?

  • @sixlettervariables I am not sure. But I remember it being discussed at some point on J.SE

Right from your A51 proposal link in big bad bold letters:

This site was seeded with content from answers.onstartups.com, a Stack Exchange 1.0 site.

What's Stack Exchange 1.0?

Our first idea was Stack Exchange… call it Stack Exchange 1.0. We thought we’d make our software available on a SaaS basis, a.k.a. “white label Stack Overflow,” so that anyone could start a site on a new topic in exchange for money.
