How to Create a Free E-mail Account with Your Domain Name

Posted in Tips, Web Design • Posted on 38 Comments

This is just quick tip on how to add a personal and free e-mail account using your domain name using the Gmail service , which I hope will be useful for someone, who didn’t know this one.

Example – You have bought domain address like –   http://www.exampledomain.com.

Lets say You want to get e-mail – [email protected], but don’t want to pay for that? Easy!

Okay, let’s do it step by step:

1. So at first you need to have an already existing Gmail account. You can register easily here –

gmail-register

2. I will not go in details – verifying and setting up your account – so the next step to do –

Press this button – at right top side of page :

gmail-settings

3. Continue here:

gmail-account

4-7. Follow-up is pretty straight forward, step by step, upload requested *.html document to server, wait until Google checks it and use it! Wasn’t so hard, yeah?

I just wanted to show this feature to people who own their own domain but don’t know how to set-up a professional email address.

Hope this helpes! ;)

    Thank you for your Blog re, ‘How to create free e-mail account with Your domain name?’.

    Sorry but If i click ‘Settings’ I only see ‘Accounts and Import’, which does not have an option for ‘Use gmail with your domain for free’

    Assuming i needed the older version. I cant find ‘Older version’ link anywhere on the google page. I am logged on using my ID.

    Has this been removed or changed?

    Thank you for your help in advance

    Actually they haven’t deleted step 3. Follow this steps now:
    1. Login into your account
    2. Look on the footer (e.g: ©Google) and search for “older version” link, Click it.
    Then follow step 3.
    3. Login into your account > Settings > Account > Have your own domain ? > Learn more > From now on you will know what you have to do.

    Cheers.

    Hi guys, I found this post useful, too. With the new Google setting, the alternative way of doing the same thing described in this post is:
    1) Go to Google App (Free) webpage. http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/group/index.html
    2) Follow through the steps. If you already own a domain name, then everything after that should be easy.
    Cheers!
