Email for your Domain

Once you have a domain name, you need to get a website at that address and an email. You may be used to using a free email service provider such as gmail, yahoo, outlook, or some other service. These don't communicate your identity. They communicate that you're using a free service. I was driving down the road the other day and saw a billboard that advertised a tree service with a Yahoo! email address. It looked amatuerish to me.

Sometimes your web hosting provider will also include email hosting. I don't recommend this, because if you decide to use a different web hosting company you'll have to change your email provider as well.

Here's some companies that will host your domain's email.

What do I use? I use and recommend Google Apps for Work. I also recommend this to all my clients. No, I don't get any money from Google for this, but I do get a lot fewer trouble calls about email failing. The cost is $50 per user per year, but you get email, calendar, Google docs, Google sites, and a lot of other services. Email from GoDaddy starts at $4.99 per month and you don't get nearly the features.

Homework:

Are you using an email address @YourDomainName ?

If not, contact an email provider and get it going.

If you are using your domain name for email, do you have it on your website, business card, and all your collateral?

Do you have email addresses or aliases set up for sales, contact, info, or whatever other functions you need?
