Is it possible to have an email address address that approximates the name of a website built on a yola subdomain i.e. without having registered a domain name? I recall being told of a site that actually offers this

Hi Terence

The reason you need a top level domain name in order to have an email address linked to your domain, is that you need domain name management. It is not possible to create the sort of records (MX records) you need with the way our subdomains work.

However, if you invest in a custom domain (eg a .com) through Yola or any other domain name registrar it is possible to have an email address associated with your domain.

I am not aware of any site that offers email addresses tied to subdomains, but if anyone has information to the contrary I am open to being corrected.

I don't know how they do it, but they must have found a way! it is www.nic.cz.cc my site is www.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc They have FULL DNS management tools!

When you buy a domain name from Yola we provide you with full DNS management, which includes the ability to set up email addresses linked to your domain. There is no extra cost for this, but you do need to select your own email service provider. You can do this with the email service of your choice. We recommend Google Apps as a really easy to use option and you can have up to 50 email addresses with a free account!

We have a tutorial explaining the steps to setting up your email address with Google Apps or Windows Live, please click on this link: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/creatin....

If you have any questions, please let us know.

I am using Google Apps right now and it works awesome! And the Premier Edition says you need 25 GB of storage -- No you don't! Standard Edition (Free) comes with 7GB of storage and I have been using it for over a year and I'm not even using a % of my quota!!! And, if you are the admin, you get to put your logo in and everything! You can visit my website's email login at http://mail.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc
