What is difference between free Email like Yahoo and Hotmail and your Email?
A paid email service will provide a unique email address that is created just for you and is linked to your domain name. Your unique or "professional" email address will help build your brand, make it more memorable, and enhance your credibility.
What do I need to make my email work?
It's easy to get an email address. The first step is choosing your domain name. Once you've registered your name you can use it as your email address with any of our email products. After purchasing the email solution that's best for you, set up your email boxes using your domain. Simple step by step instructions to help set up your email are available in your Account Manager.
Is a domain name included in the email packages?
No. Domain names are not included as part of our email packages. You may register one through Web.com UK® or use one you already have. But remember a domain name is required to activate and personalize your email boxes.
Do I have to have my domain name registered with Web.com UK to use your email?
No. Having your domain registered with Web.com UK is not required. If you plan to use a domain that is not registered with Web.com UK simply enter the domain name when you are prompted to do so during set-up. You will then be given specific DNS information which you can input into your domain provider’s DNS settings. However, if you do have a domain name with Web.com UK, it’s even easier. All you have to do is simply select the domain name from the list that will be presented to you.
