How to Create a Custom Business Email Address
Could you imagine emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to enquire about their products or services? Nope. Same goes for your business! You aren’t any less professional than these guys and your customers would expect to see a professional email address even if you don’t have a website.
Some website hosting providers supply email hosting in your package, but please be careful how this is setup as the space you take up with storing emails may be using your website space. Setting up redirects and accessing stored emails when you are away from your computer can also be a pain.
Our recommendation is to use a system like Google Workspace. It allows you to create a custom email, have a huge storage space (unlimited should you choose) and is easily accessible from your laptop, desktop, mobile, holiday home or friends computer should the need arise.
We’re big believers in using the best business to perform the tasks we need done and Google is hands down the best email provider.
Now read on because while we’re suggesting GMail, its still a personalised / custom email for your business domain.
How Much does a personalised email cost?
Google Workspace costs ~$9 AUD per month for their basic plan, this gives you one name email, eg firstname.lastname@example.org, plus up to 30 generic emails such as info@ and accounts@. Emails sent to any of the addresses still end up in your inbox, but it helps you have things organised and keep your name email free for the important stuff. You also get 30gig of storage space for your emails and your business documents.

What if I don’t have a business domain?
You will need to purchase a business domain eg www.businessname.com.au to set this up, but just follow the steps with Google Workspace and all will be explained.
You’ll still be able to use your website separately or create a website later if you don’t already have one. Your web hosting and email hosting can both be done using the same domain, it will not have any effect.
