Did you know that you can set up email accounts from your own domain using the power of the user-friendly Gmail browser-based email system? This means you can have any email address you want provided you own the domain name, and you’ll be able to access it from anywhere a browser is handy. Setting it up is a little intimidating, but if you follow these steps, you should be in the clear. (And you only have to set it up once!)
As an example, let’s assume you want to own the domain i-really-love-coffeecup.com and your name is Scott (awesome name BTW), you could easily set up firstname.lastname@example.org as your email address.
Remember, you need to own your own domain for! If you don’t have one, you can always buy one from us, and we’ll set it up for you. :)
Gmail is awesome, we’re using it ourselves!.
We briefly considered creating our own email service, but a few things halted that process. First and foremost the simple observation that we have been using gmail for our email needs since somewhere in 2007 — and have always been more then happy with it. So why create something else for our customers?
We also wanted to keep the price of our publishing and form processing platform low and not clog our support center with email inquiries. Which is one of the main support topic for hosting providers… We also decided it should be open, so that you can use any email service you like. We happen to think that Gmail is a particularly good one.
