Forget wine and cheese pairings – we’ve got the best pairing around! We want you to secure the best @yourdomainname email for your business and needs. Nothing goes better than a domain name and domain email, but deciding how many to own, which generic ones to snag, and more can be overwhelming for any business owner. We’re here to share our favourite email address options for any domain name.
Normally, when you rush off to grab your domain name you’re wondering what you should do with that domain name. Maybe you’re pondering a custom website, or which CMS to connect your domain to, or trying to find the best hosting provider for your domain. It’s only when your website developer or your business card designer is asking for your professional email address to put on your digital and print media that you realize your iloveACDC1973@yahoo.com is not really appropriate for your business. You want to pursue a custom email address, but where do you start?
The “hello@yourdomainname” Email Option
This is a great, generic option for any small business or brand. If you’re an individual, but don’t want to have your name on your email, then grab the hello option. It’s great for establishing that connection and lets your followers, partners, or customers contact you for a range of needs.
The “support@yourdomainname” Email Option
If you offer a product that mainly faces support enquiries, then get right to the point and grab the firstname.lastname@example.org email. This tells customers that you take support requests online and you can provide access to this account to your entire support team.
The “sales@yourdomainname” Email Option
If your business is sales focused and people are constantly submitting orders, then get your company a email@example.com. If sales is your focal point then this is the best way to connect with customers, whether you’re B2B or B2C.
The “yourname@yourdomainname” Email Option
Get a truly custom email by getting your name at your domain name. Every company styles theirs a little differently. Some do first_last or first.last or initials or first name only. Whichever you choose will be the jumping off point for email style as your team grows so look into the best option for you.
The “I have many employees and they need emails… right?” Option
Truthfully, this depends on your business’s needs. There are times when not everyone at your company needs a personalized email address. For example, if your team is small but each person wears many hats across sales, marketing, and support, it may be beneficial to have a firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org. These emails can be accessible by the entire team, but help to know why customers or partners are contacting you. Each individual doesn’t need their own email as they can respond from these more generic accounts to address the needs of the person contacting that department.
If your business has individual team members connecting with customers, then you may need separate email addresses. Say, you run a real estate business. You have many sales agents and they each have their own clients. Their clients shouldn’t be emailing a generic email@example.com, they should be connecting directly with firstname.lastname@example.org instead. And yes, .REALESTATE is a real Top-Level Domain – it was just released on Hover in December 2018!
A Fun Option!
If your brand likes to be creative and crafty in every aspect of their marketing, we have an interesting domain option for your business’s email. You can actually own your brand name at the .EMAIL domain name extension. This means that if you own gloriasflowers.com, you could look into owning the gloriasflowers.email domain and have all your business emails use that domain name. Pretty neat!
