30 Apr How To Set Up An Email With Your Own Domain Name (Hostgator) (QS 4)
Awful company, autobilling a month before expiration with no notice or negotiation – I’ll give anyone the worst review ever for auto-billing you 30 days prior to your site expiration and refusing to offer any sort of refund, and bury it in the TOS, without providing any notice of autobilling. They outsource their domains to another company who is some sort of shadowy figure of which there is no negotiation. The customer service sucks, and to top it off, their chat is f-ing unencrypted while asking your for login and password info to verify your account! The chat person even told me there was no way I could submit a ticket without going through the chat (not true, I did it on the phone cause I refused to give him my login info on a site that Chrome blocked). Unbelievable that a hosting company that wants to assure me my shit is secure, asking me to provide personal info on an unencrypted connection. Will never use this company again.

Quick Start Website – A series of videos guiding you through the process of setting up your own website using WordPress
In this video we show you how to set up free email addresses using the already purchased/ owned domain name with Hostgator’s CPanel and then to forward it to another email account. Emails which contain your domain name look more professional than a free email address.
Tip: If you do not want to have the web hosting but require a business email address you can choose to add on an email address when you register your domain.
