What is a domain email? 

A domain email is the web address that appears after the @ symbol in your email address. E.g:

Having a domain email address is one of the first steps to help create a professional online presence and make it easy for people to contact you. A domain email address makes it easy for clients to remember you and gives your company credibility.


When you sign up for a shared hosting package, it includes email accounts and a FREE domain name.
