When I started my business, I wondered how to get an email address with my own domain name. As a Gmail user since 2007, I did some research to see if Gmail for business was possible. That’s when I came across G Suite—Google Apps for your domain.
G Suite not only allows you to get an email address with your own domain, but you also get Google Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, and Hangouts. With prices starting at just $5 a month, G Suite is perfect for businesses of all sizes.
How to Get an Email Address with Your Own Domain
Google makes the process of getting an email address with your own domain super easy.
Answer a few questions about your business, number of employees, and current domain name. You’ll then have the ability to create your business email address using your domain name.
Honestly, the hardest part of the process is verifying that you own your domain name, but this process is well documented, and Google makes this step mostly painless. If you have trouble with this step, don’t hesitate to reach out to me in the comments below.
Within a matter of minutes, you’ll have a fully functioning Gmail inbox and an email address with your own domain name.
Gmail for Business Pricing
G Suite prices start at $5 per month. There are currently two G Suite plans: Basic and Business. The $5 per month Basic plan gives you 30 GB storage while the $10 per month Business plan gives you unlimited storage.
There are a couple extra features with the Business plan that are great for larger teams, but if you just need Gmail for your business, the Basic plan is ideal and inexpensive.
G Suite plan pricing is on a per user per month basis. This mean you can get multiple custom email addresses for your domain name for multiple users under separate accounts.
On the other hand, if you want multiple email addresses for yourself under the same domain name, you can add up to 30 aliases. This mean you can have up to 30 email addresses for your domain name for just $5 per month with a single login. This especially comes in handy when you want multiple email addresses for your business but don’t need separate accounts.
$5 per month give you:
- plus up to 24 more…
G Suite email aliases allow you to send mail from any of these email addresses and receive mail to any of these email addresses from within a single Gmail inbox. Assuming you utilize all 30 email aliases, that’s just $0.17 per email address.
You can try G Suite free for 14 days.
