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

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 – yourname@exampledomain.com, 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! ;)

    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!

    Can’t find the option to use my domain name in the current gmail’s “Accounts and Import” tab. Need help, please.

  3. Ellen says

    Well that sucks. The option for domain isn’t there! :'(
    I just created my own new website and was hoping for an email to go with it. Maybe not.

    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.
