e-mail account same as your blogdomain?

  1. Hi,
    I registered a custom domain johncolsson.com to run my blog on.. I did it all through wordpress and I was wondering if it's possible to also get myself an email account connected to the same domain, e.g contact at johncolsson dot com?

    Appreciate any help

    [Email link broken by Slik]

    The blog I need help with is peppermix.wordpress.com.

  2. Two ways - Custom DNS with a Google Account or use a regular host also with some custom DNS stuff for just the email.

    I just moved my site and kept the old email addresses and host by using some custom DNS records and working with my old host. I still pay my old host for just the email but it is a reduced price and was easy to do and I keep the same email apps program on my PC.

  4. Thank you very much! I'll have a look at your links and if I'm successful I'll have my first custom mail!

    I modified the email link above so it would become broken I did leave the email details intact.

    I broke the email link because 1 emails are not allowed in the forums because spam bots go around and harvest email address...

    2 I left the email within your reply because the question was based around the email and custom domain... Usually the moderators just remove the email to disallow spam bots access to the email address.
