One of the things I do whenever I set up a new blog or website, is set up an email account at the same domain. That means emailing people from firstname.lastname@example.org instead of something like email@example.com.
I highly recommend using Google Apps for Your Domain. Now called “G Suite.”
G Suite is basically all of the combined Google services you’re probably used to using, like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs, and Google Drive, but associated with your domain name.
The cost is pretty reasonable at $5 or less per month.
You can sign up for a free 1-month trial of G Suite using this link:
Here’s a short video showing you how to set up G Suite with your domain name, assuming you’ve set up your blog at InMotion Hosting.
