How to Set Up a Custom Email Address

by stacy

A personalized email address is one of the few things that can make you appear more professional. A significant distinction exists between receiving an email from johndoe@gmail.com and receiving one from john@doeenterprises.com. People prefer to conduct business with the latter, but they may not have the same level of confidence in the former.

To one’s advantage, setting up a professional email address is a rather simple process. It is simple to leverage an existing domain name to generate personalized email addresses if you already have one. Nothing more than paying for email hosting, which almost all providers offer as an option, is required (including us). Let’s take a look at how that procedure works!

Why You Should Be Using a Professional Email Address

Everyone requires an email address that they are not embarrassed to share with others in public or professional contexts. When you’re 15 years old, it’s acceptable to have your primary email address be therock4532@gmail.com. When you’re in your twenties or thirties, though, this is considered less acceptable.

An email address such as janecdoe@gmail.com is a step in the right direction. A CV with this design would be appropriate because it is straightforward and professional. If, on the other hand, you want to take things a step further, a custom domain is the most effective way to accomplish this.

When we receive an email from an address such as jane@doeenterprises.com, we can infer two things: 1) the sender is a woman named Jane, and 2) the recipient is a business.

We’re most likely dealing with a seasoned specialist.

Receivers are more likely to take you seriously if you use a professional email account. If you own a business or work as a freelancer, this can be beneficial to you. On top of that, setting up a professional email account is inexpensive and simple to accomplish.

Following that, you may choose how much storage space you wish to allocate to your account. As a starting point, we set the default storage to 200 MB, which is more than enough if you regularly clean out your inbox. However, all of our email plans offer mailboxes with a maximum size of 25 GB, so you’ll be OK if you require any additional space.

All of the settings in the section below this one are related to email management. Here is where you may enable or disable features such as sending you email storage warnings or removing read messages for you on your behalf.
