Gmail vs Your Domain Address

Why using your Domain Name for your email address is better for you and your business than using Google’s or Yahoo or any other free email service provider

Why should you use your Domain Email Address instead of Gmail? Customers have come to expect your business to have a domain name and a website. An email address like "domain@domain.com" tells people you are serious about your business

Most people who are new to setting up their online presence and exploring how to start up a Website miss out on key features that come with owning their own Domain Name. How many times have you visited a site and on their "Info" page or "Contact Us" page, you see they have email addresses like:
will_russ48@gmail.com
The average person usually thinks, “Really? Their personal email address? I thought this was a real business!” And off they go

Those email services that are free such as Gmail and Yahoo may be great for your personal use, but when you use this type of email account for business purposes people will start to doubt your professionalism and credibility. For example, you are planning a business trip and you received an email from a travel agent You see their email address is from Gmail. This is the first clue that something is wrong and they would start to question the trustworthiness of that company. Who did I just email? Is this business legitimate or did I just get spammed? Would you take someone with a Hotmail.com email address seriously? There are prejudices about the domain that your email address comes from. Which would you rather see:
yourname@yourdomain.com
john_green25@hotmail.com
emily.sen792@gmail.com

Domain Email Address

With owning your domain name you can set up email aliases (or email forwarders). For a example. Created a email address jsmith@yourcompany.com. With your RSH Web hosting services, you can also create email aliases such as info@yourcompany.com and sales@yourcompany.com, and have all emails sent to the aliases forwarded to your main email address. This way, you are creating the illusion of a larger and professional company. With you own your domain name, you are no longer tied to an email service provider or an ISP. If you are using only Gmail for your business you are tied to Gmail. What if you want to change email service providers or to use other services Gmail does not offer, You’re stuck. By using your own Domain for email you have the flexibility and options to use any hosting provider you like

Branding your Company

The goal of branding your company is to ensure that potential customers know exactly who you are and what your brand is. Have you ever seen a email address on a business card and took a look at their website? This will not happen with free email addresses. If you are using your Domain in your email address you are showing off your brand front and center and to more people. Just like you have a custom Domain for your website rather than something like mybusiness.wix.com. You need a professional Email address to provide a consistent branding
