Why Your Name Is Worth Only 58 Cents
One of the questions friends, associates and small business owners I come across consistently ask is about how to get a custom email address.
Whether for their family name, business name or something quirky like _____@IReallyLoveClowns.com, there is a quick and easy route to set-up a custom domain name + get a free 2 GB email account with free webmail access.
Here’s where I send people for custom email addresses and new domain names:
1and1 Internet is the world’s largest web host and they certainly are trying to gain customers by basically giving away domain registration (website addresses) and free email accounts included. If you want a custom address that is .info, or .us or .mobi, you can get them as cheap as $1.99/year from 1and1.
For $6.99 you can get one of the main .com .net or .org domain names for a complete year without any hassles.
I’ve used their telephone customer service too and they are pretty responsive each time I’ve called them — you get to speak to a human without going through tons and tons of defensive IVR voice menu trees first.
BONUS TIP: $7/year is so affordable (just think about it — you can certainly afford 58 CENTS a month, can’t you?) that you should consider getting a custom email address for your kids — remember that as time goes by, the main .com addresses will be harder and harder to get — especially as more people come into the world and onto the net! The chances that your kids’ fill names are available in a couple of years will certainly decrease! Investing in the custom domain/email address now may be one of the best things you do for your kids today.
