I have seen many Startup’s like bloggers, tech companies often use public domain email addresses, such as one offered for free by Gmail; even though when they already own a domain name.
If you are a domain owner, it’ a good idea to use a professional Email address like [email protected], [email protected], as it not only shows professionalism; it also makes your email more serious and authentic.
There are a few webs-services that you can use to create a domain-based email address, and the best options is by using G Suite.
G Suite cost only $5/user/month, and it offers much more than just Email.
As the name suggests, it’s a complete suite of apps like business email, Calender, docs, spreadsheet and many more. Everything is on Cloud, which in turns improve your workflow and hence better productivity and revenue=,
In this guide, I will show you how to create Email ID for your domain using G Suite (Formerly Google apps for work).
Note: Some of the screenshots might not be the same; as Google keeps changing the screenshot but the process will be the same and is very easy to follow for you.
Today in this article I am going to help you create a professional email ID. This article will work with most of the common domain registrar.
Here is how to create a professional email address
Steps to register at G Suite
- Go to G Suite Sign up Page click on start free trial (You would be paying later, but it’s good to enjoy first one month without paying anything)
- On the next page enter the details for signing up.
Click on next, and on the next page, you have the option to buy the domain from Google or use any of your existing domain. If you have a domain, use the option which says “Use a domain name I have already purchased” and if you need to buy a domain name, use the second option.
On the next page, you will need to create your first G Suite username. My suggestion would be, create only those email address which you are more likely going to use.
As G Suite charges /user/month, using fewer Email address will ensure that your business monthly expense will be low.
Click on signup and it will automatically redirect you to admin dashboard of your newly created G Suite account. Here is a screenshot of my G Suite admin console.
The very first thing which we require here is to verify domain ownership which could be done in multiple ways. The easiest way is by adding the meta tag if you already created your website, or you can add TXT record to verify domain ownership.
In my case, I have added meta tag into my WordPress site to verify domain ownership.
Once you have verified your domain ownership, the next step is to set up email for your domain. Click on next step after verify, and you will be back to admin console where you can click on setup email to start setting up G Suite Email service.
The great thing about G Suite setup tool is, it’s very smart and makes it easy for any non-technical user to setup and get running in no-time.
For example, in my case, G Suite detected that my domain is hosted on Bluehost, and it gave me instructions to quickly setup G Suite email service via Bluehost.
Now delete all existing MX record in your Bluehost hosting account or other web-hosting services that you are using, and simply add the MX record provided by Email setup console of G Suite:
That’s it! Within 24 hours Google will check the MX records after which your mail will be activated. I hope this tutorial will help you get your personalized email address for your domain.
Do remember, having a professional Email address, will help in branding and look more professional.
Do let us know if you have claimed your personalized domain Email address or not?
