How do I get and use a private pastebin?

You get a private pastebin simply by thinking up a domain name no-one else is using, e.g. or Posts made into a subdomain only show up on that domain, making it easy for you to collaborate without the 'noise' of the regular service.

All you need to do is change the web address in your browser to access a private pastebin, or you can simply enter the domain you'd like below

Please note that there is no password protection unless you are a registered user - subdomains are accessible to anyone who knows the domain name you've chosen, but we do not publish a list of domains used.

Tools for interacting with pastebin.

To help you get the most out of pastebin we have assembled a small set of tools to enable you to make pastes from right within your favourite applications.

There's a pastebin vim plugin script, a pastebin shell script which can also be used with Kate text editor and even a pastebin Firefox extension.
