What does a domain name do and Why do I need one?
Firstly you need to understand what a domain name does, then you will see the reasons you will need one. Domain Names are the address system of the internet. Everything on the internet needs an address to be able to access it. Typically everything works on numbers, known as IP addresses. However People cannot remember these numbers very easily so we use names. Typically, although less today, we use www.domainname.tld to take us to a website. Email will follow the route to the mail server which will be located typically at mail.domainname.tld. Other services can also use your same domain name, such as webmail to access your email, smtp servers and anything else you like. Businesses typlically use this more than individuals but individuals and families can use them too.
Email with your own domain name
Most home users and what should be 100% of businesses should be using their own domain name for email. Whilst the email server may cost a little the doman name itself doesn’t cost that much these days. For instance our .UK domain names are under £10 per year. In the early days these could cost upward of £100 per year. Email accounts typically cost about £1.00/month/user.
Why not a FREE email account?
Well you can but you should know what you are getting in to. Firstly if it is free then you probably don’t own the account or the domain name. This is especially true if you use something like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo mail or Outlook.com. Have you read their terms and conditions? You can read the relevant parts in our news feed. Basically you give them a licence to do as they please with anything in your account. This licence cannot be revoked, is persistent even after you delete the data and can be sold by them for profit. If you own the domain name, and so the email address, you can then move your services to any other provider you feel happy with; you cannot do that with your outlook.com email. The same goes for your email acccount if it is provided by your internet service provider.
