Many people register a www.domain.name – set up a website, but never use their domain-name email address which is available for free to them. The reason why many people don’t do this varies – some don’t know that this is available to them, while some think it is too hard to set up.
Simple tutorial: Get Free Email with your Domain name
What would you think of a person who is trying to do business with you and emails you from a Gmail or hotmail/yahoo mail address. It is reasonable to think that you would possibly give more importance to a person who actually emails you with and email-address like firstname.lastname@example.org rather than a free service like email@example.com or jack @gmail.com.
Many people don’t understand the importance of you custom email address until they start using this, a e-mail with your own website address definitely looks more professional and trustworthy than a free email service. It also shows that you have taken the trouble to purchase a website , which adds another factor of authenticity and reassurance.
Getting a custom email is even easier today with domain names available for as low as $1 and wordpress hosting for websites going for as low as $3.49 a month. This makes it not only easier to get a website started but also get your custom email name/address.
There are still many people out here who only buy a domain name to get a respectable looking email-address attached to it which they can use for communication.
Here are some Domain and hosting providers that give you a free Email with your domain name and hosting account.
The fact of the matter is when you have spent money to buy a domain name, then why not use it and get yourself looking professional in your email communication with others. When you send a email to another person from your own website domain name it also shows trust , as only you or people you trust will be able to use your that website mail address.
Below I will show you what it’s all about when we use terms like Forwarding emails , Set up email servers, POP 3 and SMTP. But really you don’t need to know the more technical terms like pop 3 and smtp as the process of forwarding your emails are pretty straightforward.
So what is email forwarding
While we all would like to have our very own custom email-addy, we still want the comfort of our gmail or Hotmail for daily use. This is where the above email providers come in, they have made it easy to just set it up so that you can just forward all your emails you get at firstname.lastname@example.org to forward to email@example.com or yahoo or hotmail which is what you use for everyday checking of mails.
IF you are looking for any of the following solutions
- Forwarding email server , pop 3 smtp register

- Email with domain name
Then the guide below will be able to help you
