How to create a custom email domain name?
Do you pay attention when you receive emails to which address they are sent from? Can you see the difference between @gmail.com and @letsdomains.com addresses? The difference is, of course, in the domain!
Having a custom email domain has a significant impact on how you are perceived. Both in the business world and for personal use. In this article, we'll tell you how to make a professional business email and what the advantages are.
Own domain in e-mail address
The domain to be used in an email address is the part of the email address that comes after the '@' sign. It is the unique part that indicates where the email server for an email address is located. The email domain is essentially part of the web address (URL) also used to host websites. This is the case for Let's Domains, where our email address: email@example.com includes the name of our website: letsdomains.com
Having your own email domain has a significant impact on your perception both in the business world and for personal use. Mainly because of several key benefits related to professionalism and branding. See the benefits of using your own email domain.
Professional business email
You are perceived as professional. An email address with a custom domain (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) is perceived as more professional than a standard email address (e.g. email@example.com). Professional business email sends a clear message to customers and business partners. Your company is perceived as serious and well-established.
Email is an element of branding and brand identity. A custom email domain is a powerful branding tool. It helps build and perpetuate brand awareness, ensuring that every email sent contributes to the promotion of your business.
Increase credibility and trust. Customers perceive companies with professional business emails as more credible and established. This, in turn, gives you an advantage over competitors who may use free or less professional email addresses.
You have control over your own email inbox. By owning your email domain, you have more control over the security and management of your emails. For example, you can apply additional security measures that are not available in standard email services.
Personal email domain
Uniqueness and personalisation. Your personal email domain reflects your personality or interests (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). It is a way to stand out and show your personality.
Developing your own branding. If you are a freelancer or professional, your personal email domain is an extension of your personal branding, much like a website or business card.
Stability. Unlike email addresses offered by employers or online services, having a personal email domain provides continuity and independence. The email address remains the same, regardless of career changes or external email address providers.
Flexibility. You can create additional email addresses for different purposes (e.g. personal, hobby) under the same domain, allowing you to better organise and manage your communications.
Both personal and professional email domains reinforce the professional image of a company or individual brand and provide greater control, security and personalisation opportunities in digital communications.
Picking the perfect domain - how to make best choice?
How to make the best choice when selecting a domain name? Choosing the right domain name for your own email is a crucial step in building an online presence, for both businesses and individual users. The ideal domain name should be short and simple – this makes it easier to remember and minimises the risk of mistakes when typing in the address. It should also be directly related to your brand or personal branding so that it is immediately associated with your business or identity. Avoid complicated acronyms and vague references that can be confusing. You should also consider using keywords related to your industry or business, which can contribute to better recognition and search engine optimisation. Remember to check the availability of your chosen domain name before making a final decision – a unique and distinctive domain name is the foundation of an effective and professional image in the digital world.
