Creating an email address with your domain name is one of the easiest ways to promote your company or business. Simply put, having your domain name in your email address makes you look more trustworthy and professional.
There are two ways to create a custom email address with your domain. To get full email capabilities with your domain name, you can sign up for Name.com Email—plans start at $0.99 per month. You’ll get 10 GB of storage, web and mobile access to your inbox, address books, calendars, and all the other features you’d expect from an email service.
But you can also set up a “vanity” email address by using free email forwarding. You create an address—such as email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org—and any emails sent to that address can be forwarded to an existing email address, such as your Gmail inbox. You won’t be able to send emails from that address, but you can still create a more memorable, professional email address for people to send messages to.
Here is how you set up your vanity email address using your domain name and email forwarding:
1. Click on your domain name in your account/domain dashboard:
2. Click on “Email Forwarding:”
3. Add the email address you want to use with your domain name and then fill in where you want your email sent to. Once you’ve filled those two things in, simply hit “Add Record” and you’re all set… your new email address with your domain name is ready to be used.
