Setting Up a Business Email

by | Jul 24, 2019 | Website Hosting Blog

Communication counts for a lot in business. By keeping in touch with your customers you can keep them engaged with your company. Setting up a business email is one of the best ways to achieve this. In today’s article, we’ll look at how easy it is to set up a dedicated business email account, and impress your customers with a professional email address.

What is a Business Email?

When we talk about business email, we’re really talking about a domain email address (also known as a custom email address). For example, our own customers can email [email protected] to get in touch with our team. As you can see, this is a domain email address based around our domain name –

Better Organisation

By setting up a dedicated business email account, you can easily keep your business and personal emails separate. If your business is new, this might not seem like a big deal. But as your customer base grows, you’ll quickly realise the convenience of having a separate business email.

Create a Professional Email Address

Unfortunately, some business owners try to use their personal email accounts to send and receive business emails too. As well as being confusing, this also means that your email address probably looks unprofessional. [email protected] looks OK for emailing friends – but it’s not ideal for emailing important clients. A domain email address instantly looks more professional.

Extra Mailboxes

There are other things to think about when creating a professional email address. As well as including your domain name (after the @ symbol), your business email address will also include a local part (before the @ symbol). This allows you to create more than one mailbox for different people or teams within your business. For example, you could create the business email [email protected] for your sales team, then create [email protected] for your human resources team.

You should always ensure that the local part of your email address is clear, easy to spell and professional.

How to Get a Domain Email Address

The easiest way to get a domain email address is to choose a domain registrar that sells domain names with free email addresses. If you’ve already registered a domain name, then you might already have a free domain email available . If not, then you should think about switching to a registrar that provides this.

The best web hosting plans also come with extra free features (like a domain name and email address). This is the perfect way to get everything you need to launch your online business, all in one go.

Unlimited Email Addresses 

If you need separate mailboxes for different staff or departments, then make sure your plan covers this. Large businesses will benefit from unlimited email addresses right from the start. This allows you to set up as many mailboxes as you need, and give everyone in your company a professional email address. This is also perfect if you want to grow your online business quickly – and avoid the hassle of upgrading to a new plan.
