Setting Up a Custom Email Address

Any web host will offer you the opportunity to create custom email addresses with the domain you've purchased. (So if you've just purchased Awesome.com, you'll be able to create an email address like JohnDoe@Awesome.com.) Some hosts (like GoDaddy) charge extra for custom email addresses; at some hosts, a limited number email addresses are provided free. Some hosts offer unlimited custom email addresses.
