SET UP GMAIL FOR YOUR OWN DOMAIN


Did you know that you can set up email accounts from your own domain using the power of the user-friendly Gmail browser-based email system? This means you can have any email address you want provided you own the domain name, and you’ll be able to access it from anywhere a browser is handy. Setting it up is a little intimidating, but if you follow these steps, you should be in the clear. (And you only have to set it up once!)
As an example, let’s assume you own the domain philwebsupport.com and your name is Chris . You could easily set up Chris@philwebsupport.com as your email address.
Remember, you need to own your own domain! If you don’t have one, you can always buy one from us, and we’ll set it up for you. 🙂
