Email remains an essential tool for communication in today’s world. It’s not just a combination of characters and symbols, it’s a digital identity that reflects who you are and what you represent. To take it to another level, you can register a domain name and create a custom .CA email address (like [email protected]). This will enable you to add a level of professionalism and credibility to your emails, whether you are:

  • starting up a new business,
  • a budding freelancer, or
  • sprucing up your online presence while you’re job hunting

Once you register your domain, you’ll be able to set up your very own custom email address – you can even connect it to gmail if you’d prefer to use a platform you’re familiar with.

3 reasons why you should get a custom email address

1. Add a level of professionalism to your emails.

If you’re a new business owner or freelancer, add trust and credibility to your emails with a custom email address tailored to you or your brand. Creating a professional email address will help build that brand recognition online. A branded email is always more legitimate in the eyes of potential clients and customers. 

2. Easily organize and manage your email accounts.

If you have employees, consider setting the team up with unique custom email addresses and unite them under a common domain name. Multiple email addresses are perfect for companies looking for a place to collect customer inquiries, applications or order information. 

You can host your .CA email address with your registrar (the company with whom you register your domain name with) or set it up to have incoming mail forwarded to your personal email account. This is a great way to stay organized while keeping your personal and business brands separate. 

3. Setting up an email account is really quick and easy to do.

Creating a custom email address with your .CA domain name is easy. Check with your trusted registrar today about getting your email address set up. Most offer the service and will help you get set up in minutes. 

Even if you’re not planning on launching a website anytime soon, you can go ahead and get a domain name and start using your custom .CA email address to build your brand online. Looking for other ways to use your .CA domain? Read our blog on three other ways to use a .CA domain.
