This may be slightly out there, but I am trying to set up a customer email for my new business. I already have a domain name registered, and was looking to see if there were free email applications. Looks like gmail and the like have all moved to a pay service. What does everyone use for setting up their business email? Do I have to resolve for paying someone for the service? I'm not looking to just have a yahoo.com address or something like that. I want to leverage my personal domain.
Appreciate any feedback!
Yep, if you want your domain to appear after the @ then you need to pay.
Thanks for the feedback Al. Appreciate it!
If you have a domain name registered. You probably have your website hosted somewhere.
Every host provider allows you to many e-mail ids as you like.
You can use pretty much any provider to host your e-mail. Unless you host it yourself, you are going to have to pay. I use West Host for hosting my e-mail and website and it's something like $5-$10/month. I used to use HostGator but I didn't like their sneakery. Also, using a service like this allows you to host your website at the same time.
Here's a quick flow of how the Internets work for this:
- Buy your domain name (GoDaddy or someone less evil)
- Select your hosting provider (GoDaddy, HostGator or someone less evil)
- Point your DNS from GoDaddy to HostGator
- Log into HostGator and create your e-mail accounts
- Use whatever you want to check them (Outlook, Thunderbird, Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
Thanks for the feedback everyone. I will be looking into this! Like the zoho.com tip.
