So this may surprise most people, but having a custom email with your hosting provider is not only easy but comes at no extra charge. Starting a business isn’t easy, and there is a price tag that comes at every turn; if there is a free and easy option for something you need for your business, why not!
One of the essential needs for a brand to position itself professionally is to have your domain email. A traditional email may show you as an amateur, and sometimes you may be sent to the spam folder of potential clients or business associates you reach out to, which isn’t what you want. The message you want to send out is how professional and well-rounded your business is, and that starts from the primary step of your form of communication, specifically your email. Emails are vital in establishing yourself as a brand to be remembered. So why not drop the traditional route and go for a more polished one?
You may have come across businesses with a domain email like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, and it sounds so cool and gives you the feeling that you could trust that business. You could have that for your brand. And a significant pro is to have as many as possible, starting from firstname.lastname@example.org or support @yourdomain.com.

If you are a non-techy person, it can be a hassle to point the right root domain to the email providers’ servers and get everything working smoothly.
