1. Register a free domain name

It is impossible to overestimate the importance of email in business communication. In addition to enabling immediate response for customers, email is also an influential branding tool.

HubSpot reports that four out of five small business marketers would rather give up social media than email marketing. This email serves as much as a virtual face for your website as it does for a website – with which a business email is often associated.

In fact, registering a domain name is one of the first steps in getting a business email.

In addition to serving as the address for your website, a domain name is also the basis for your business email address. This is why it should include your business name, or be as close as possible to it. There are many domain registrars out there that you could register your domain with.

It is possible to access free or discounted email services through your hosting plan if your hosting company works with an email partner that allows you to access email services for free or at a discount. You can conduct some research on the hosting providers and do a comparison to go with one that suits your needs better.
