Private Email Hosting
There are many options for setting up a custom business email with companies like Google, Blue Host, GoDaddy, Wix, and so on. Each one may offer their own set of features, but if you want just simple email capabilities then you can't go wrong with PrivateEmail.
If you've ever bought a domain from NameCheap you might be familiar with this service, otherwise, you can follow the instructions below to get started with your custom email address.
Visit this link: PrivateEmail, to select how many emails you want.
You'll see an image that will look something like this. Pick the option that best suits your needs. Although the promotions might be different, after the first year, a single mailbox typically renews at $11.88/year.
Click "Get Email" to start the sign-up process.
You'll see the following options next. If you don't already have a custom domain, you can go ahead and purchase it at the same time, otherwise, you can proceed with one of the other two options. This tutorial will assume the domain is was purchased at another registrar since that option involves some extra steps.
If you already own a custom domain, click "Use a domain I own from another registrar".
You'll be met with a sign in or sign up screen. Go ahead and sign up if this is your first time using NameCheap.
Note: If you are signing up for our bespoke email service, please use a password you are comfortable sharing, you can change it after the set-up process is complete
After you are logged into your new account you'll see a form where you enter the custom URL that you already own. It's the domain you bought at another Registrar. If you haven't bought one yet you can click the red link to go Back to domain selection
Enter the domain name you own, and click "Use this Domain" then "Continue"
You'll be asked to confirm the number of mailboxes you would like.
Note: You may want a minimum of 2 mailboxes if you plan to send automated emails with our service as well as having your mailbox.
Click "Add to Cart" and complete your purchase
The rest should be a standard checkout process. You might want to turn on auto-renew so that you never lose access to your mailbox.
Lastly, you'll want to update your DNS records with whatever registrar you bought the domain from.
After you complete the purchase and login to the account dashboard on NameCheap you'll see a message similar to this:
