  • How do I create a custom email address that matches my domain name?

    There are a couple of ways you can create your own custom email address that matches your domain name: You can set up email forwarding. Email forwarding comes free with all domains registered at Dynadot. It allows you to create "whatever@yourdomain.com" and forward it to another email address such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. The drawback of using email forwarding is that you cannot respond with your "whatever@yourdomain.com" email address. You can purchase our Website Builder Business plan. Our Business package comes with a free domain (included with the annual plan only) and access to your own email through our custom, easy-to-use platform. You can purchase web hosting. We have two options for web hosting - Email, which is for email, and can also be used for static, HTML websites and VPS, which offers more advanced users a platform to create their website and email.
