    As the title suggests, I'm planning to reg a domain name exclusively for using it to set up an email to use for outbounds since I have been advised that free emails are not professional. So I have some questions and would appreciate some answers:
    1. Does the cctld affect the legitimacy of my email? Planning to buy a .LI domain but I don't know if it might automatically be filtered as spam.
    2. Are email hacks OK (professional-wise)? My email is going to be my family name. Ex: if my family name is CANNOLI the email would be [email protected] / the website would be CA.NNO.LI but that's another subject.
    3. What is the preferred email hosting to use for best reliability and effeciency? Keeping in mind that I only need 1 email so it should be a basic hosting plan. Not planning to go enterprise-y.
    4. If the domain is registered at NameCheap, should I buy email hosting at both the registrar AND the preferred hosting service? (mega noob question, I know)
    Just to give you an idea on my budget, I checked with Rackspace. Even though they advertise that they have a $2/month plan, they have a minimum monthly spend at $10 which I think is a bit expensive.

    Never use hosting and email hosting from your registrar. Let professionals do every crucial part of your business. If you don't plan to develop your site, then you don't need a webhosting. As for email hosting, i use Rackspace, and i think Zoho is almost the same in quality and free.

    Hi @golan, thanks for the response. So for e-mail hosting you recommend Zoho. Will note this.

    If you're using them, are you on a minimal plan? Also, how much are they charging?

    $2.79 per user per month at https://www.alpnames.com/google_apps.php
    you could easily find google suite on any other domain registrar company such as namecheap, godaddy, whois.com or name.com

    namecheap even offering $25 bonus if you bought google suite from them

    Now waiting for it to be verified. Added TXT record and all, it says I should wait 30 minutes. That $25 is a big bonus that I wasn't expecting at all! Not sure when I'm going to receive it though. Thanks again mate.

    make sure you changed your MX setting to google suite, email only work if the MX properly set
    about 25$ bonus you could contact namecheap support for further explanation

    In Advanced DNS > Mail Settings, it says "Gmail automatically configured" so I guess it is all sorted. I'm online with their support anyway.

    UPDATE: it is now verified and the bonus credit are expected to hit my account at the end of this month.

    Depends on how hacky you get, if you ask me. Your example would be fine, but someone might just think that's 1337 speak instead of an email, so you may have to always preface it with something like "email:"

    Adding the word 'email' before my email is a good idea. I sent a test email and by the looks of it, the email goes well next to my name in the sender field. Here's a screenshot:

    So I don't think this will confuse the recipient as to thinking this is a spam email. Thoughts?
