A company e-mail address, especially with a personalised domain name, gives your business a more authentic and trustworthy feel. Opening your own company e-mail account can also give your business the opportunity to connect with customers on a more immediate basis and provide additional opportunity for growth. The task is simple, requiring only a few minutes of your time, and does not require a large investment.

Instructions

  1. 1

    If you have a domain name, contact your domain name registrar and request to add an e-mail account.

  2. 2

    If you do not have a domain name, choose a free e-mail account with a company such as Yahoo, Gmail or Lycos.

  3. 3

    Choose a premium business e-mail account that does not include a website, such as Yahoo Business Email (See resources) if you want a personlized address without a full website.

  1. 1

    Login to your domain registrar account page and find an option to add an e-mail account to your domain. If you already have a webhosting account, e-mail is normally included. Before purchasing the option for a mailbox, ensure that this is not already included in your account.

  2. 2

    Choose the amount of e-mail storage and e-mail accounts that applies to your needs. A small business with only a handful of employees can usually get by with the cheapest options. You can always upgrade in the future, so it is best to start small and work up. Purchase the plan and complete checkout.

  3. 3

    Choose a main e-mail account, such as an "info" address, that can be considered your main company e-mail.

  4. 4

    Determine how many users, if any, you wish to have personal e-mail accounts. Create the accounts and distribute the login information.

  5. 5

    Add your e-mail address to your business cards, website and any other marketing materials.

  1. 1

    Choose a free e-mail host company. Yahoo, Gmail and Hotmail are popular options.

  2. 2

    Determine what name you want to use. A main company e-mail address with a free account could look something like, "mycompanyname@yahoo.com".

  3. 3

    Create a new account on your chosen free e-mail host by clicking on the appropriate link on their website.

  4. 4

    Determine if you need more than just a main company e-mail. If you would like different users, try a combination of their initials or last names with your company name. An example could be "jdoe_mycompanyname@yahoo.com". Create as many accounts as needed for the amount of employees who need an e-mail address.

  5. 5

    Add your e-mail address to your business cards, website and any other marketing materials.
