How To Create a Free Email Address With Your Domain Name

by Henry Emmanuel

One of the major benefits of having a custom domain is the ability to set up or create a business email ending with your domain name. This practice makes your website & works look more professional to your clients. Think about it, Mr. Smith invited you for a “business meeting” and after having a brief discussion with him, he then requested for your email address in other to contact you later on. Now, which would you give him?


From the above emails, you’ll certainly agree with me that [email protected] makes sense, looks more professional and quite trustworthy. Before now, one could easily create a professional email address with the Google apps for business. However, this service didn’t last long, as the “free version” was shut down after Google “lowered” the amount of users (using the free account) from 50 to 10. Google had to quench this offer because there was a need for a “24/7 customer support and larger inboxes”. Moreover, businesses were outgrowing the free or basic version.

If you can pay a couple of bucks ($5), then you can be able to create a professional business email using the Google app for business. However you can easily create the same business email using Zoho Mail, and the best part is it’s completely Free!. Zoho Mail is an ’email service’ that allows you to create a Free ‘no ad’ Business email, & the service brings a ton of plethora features. Actually, i discovered Zoho Mail while digging deep into the web. So, I thought it would be wise to share it here.
