If you have already registered a domain name or website, you can go straight to Step 3: Choose the Right Business Email Provider.

Not ready for a website yet? Don’t worry – it’s not a requirement for having a custom email address.

2 Register a Domain Name

Once you’ve selected the available domain name(s), you can register the domain name(s) with a retailer.

No matter which domain name retailer you choose, the process is usually similar for most.*

Helpful Tip

Check to see if your domain name retailer offers business email services. Some offer a variety of business email plans that can easily be bundled with your domain name registration.

3 Choose the Right Business Email Provider

Next, it’s time to choose the right business email provider for yourbusiness. It’s important to consider two main factors: how you want your emailto be supported, and your budget, since providers can charge monthly fees basedon each user/email address.

In general, you can choose from three main email service options:

  • Shared Web and Email Hosting: Provided by related businesses that also host domain names, e.g., domain name retailers.  This offers a high level of convenience for businesses looking to streamline their online presence.
  • Third-Party Email Hosting: A third-party provider that isn’t your domain retailer hosting your email. These companies tend to have a wide variety of features and support for businesses of all sizes.
  • Self-Hosted Email: Allows you to host your email through your own servers. While this can provide a high level of control, it typically requires additional work to set up and maintain.

Keep In Mind

Depending on budget, consider creating a few email addresses using employee names, like employeename@pearlybrightsmiles.net, or emails based off teams/functions, such as sales@pearlybrightsmiles.net. Doing this helps to create a more established, professional image for your business, no matter how big or small.

4 Connect an Email Address to a Domain Name

Lastly, work with your business email provider to configure your email service with the registered domain name. Once that’s done, you can configure your devices so that you can access your email whenever and virtually wherever you want – on your mobile phone, tablet, or desktop.

That’s it - now you’re ready to send and receive emails like a pro.

*Actual process varies based on the service provider and your selections.
