  • Hi Guys!

  • I'm Subhang from Websitelearners.com

  • Today, I'll be showing you

  • How you can create your business email address for free

  • So after watching this video instead of you using a

  • normal gmail account like this one ([email protected]gmail.com),

  • you'll be able to use an email ID like

  • YourName@YourSite.com

  • which looks a lot more professional

  • Now, this means you will be able to send or receive emails

  • using addresses like contact@yoursite.com

  • or support@yoursite.com

  • So, after you create your business email

  • we'll see, how you can connect your business email

  • with gmail so that everything can be managed in one place

  • So, all you need to have to follow

  • this tutorial is a Domain name with GoDaddy

  • So, if you don't have a domain name, you can get it now

  • just by clicking here

  • So, you can get the domain

  • and then follow this tutorial

  • So after you've got the domian

  • Now if you try to create an email account on that domain

  • you would need to pay about 5 dollar a month

  • for creating a business email

  • So, In this video, I'll be showing you how you can avoid

  • paying that amount

  • and create your business email address for free

  • So let's get started!

  • We're going to create a business email address in just

  • 5 steps!

  • The First Step

  • Is to login to godaddy

  • So, let's go to godaddy.com

  • and then click 'sign in'

  • Now sign-in to your account

  • Okay, so now I've signed in!

  • and you can see that

  • this is the domain that I have on my account

  • So we're going to setup the email on this domain

  • So to do that

  • Let's go to step 2

  • which is to create an email forward in godaddy

  • So by creating the forward

  • we'll be able to forward

  • all the emails

  • coming to your business email

  • to your gmail inbox

  • So let's create a forward,

  • let's scroll down

  • And click 'additional products'

  • then next to email forwarding

  • click 'redeem'

  • Now click 'create forward'

  • Now, in this field,

  • enter the business email address that you want to create

  • It can be anything@yourdomain.com

  • So I'm going to type contact@

  • Now when you type @ it will automatically show

  • the domain that you've purchased on your Godaddy account

  • So you can select it

  • and then here you need to enter your gmail address

  • Now here we're telling godaddy to forward,

  • all the emails sent to this address

  • to our gmail address

  • Okay!

  • So let's click create!

  • And our email forward has been created

  • So, Now let's go to STEP 3

  • Which is to check, if our DNS settings are correct

  • In order to ensure, that the emails are being forwarded,

  • we need to make sure, that our DNS is setup correctly

  • So to check our DNS settings

  • Click 'tools'

  • And click 'server settings'

  • Okay! So now you can see that we're getting

  • an error message

  • which says "No MX records were found"

  • So this means, the forward, we just created

  • will not work

  • and enter the settings given here

  • So let's fix the DNS

  • by going to godaddy

  • Then click here

  • and click 'my products'

  • Now next to your domain name

  • click 'DNS'

  • So, we're going to add our MX records on this page

  • So let's scroll down

  • and click 'add'

  • And choose the 'type' as 'MX'

  • Now in this field, just type '@'

  • and now we need to copy-paste the

  • correct server settings in this box

  • So let's go back to this page

  • and copy this text

  • and paste it here

  • Now, enter '0' in this field

  • And click 'save'

  • Okay, so the first entry has been added

  • Now, let's add the final entry,

  • by clicking 'add'

  • And then select 'MX'

  • Now type '@' here

  • and then let's go to this page

  • And copy the second setting

  • and paste it here

  • Now enter '10' in this box

  • and click 'save'

  • Okay! So now we've added the MX records

  • So, let's go back

  • and previously we had this error message

  • Now, since we've added our MX records

  • let's click 'refresh'

  • And as you can see godaddy tells us that

  • the 'MX records' are correct

  • This means that our email forwarding will work

  • So previously we told godaddy,

  • to forward the emails coming here

  • to gmail

  • Okay!

  • So let's go to a random gmail account

  • and click 'compose'

  • and, try sending an email to contact@quicktechy.com

  • and click 'send'

  • Now if we go to the gmail account,

  • where we forwarded our mail

  • and click 'refresh'

  • You can see that we have received a mail

  • So let's click it

  • So now, if you click here

  • you can see that it was sent to our business email

  • So now, we're able to receive emails to our business email

  • Next, we're going to see how we can send emails

  • from this address

  • So right now, if we reply to this mail

  • It will still go from our gmail address which we don't want

  • We want our email to be sent from

  • contact@quicktechy.com

  • So to send emails from our domain

  • we need an SMTP server

  • So we're going to get a free server

  • from a website called 'SMTP2go'

  • Okay!

  • So let's go to STEP 4

  • which is to Setup an account, on SMTP2GO

  • So to create the account

  • Let's open a new tab

  • and search for 'SMTP2GO'

  • And then click the first link

  • And click 'Try for free'

  • Now let's enter these details

  • and click 'sign-up'

  • Okay! So once you reach this page

  • your SMTP account is now ready

  • So now let's go to the final step!

  • Which is to Add this account to Gmail

  • By doing this

  • we'll be able to send emails, from the business email address,

  • using gmail

  • So to add this account to gmail

  • Let's go there

  • and go to 'settings'

  • Now click 'accounts & import'

  • And now, since we want to send emails,

  • from our business email

  • We need to click 'add another email address'

  • And you'll get this 'new window'

  • Now first, we're going to enter the 'from name'

  • which we want in our emails

  • Now this is the name which will appear

  • when someone receives an email from you

  • So you can type anything here

  • So I'm going to type 'quicktechy support'

  • And then here you need to enter the same email,

  • which you used while setting up the email forward

  • So for me, it's contact@quicktechy.com

  • So, I'm going to enter that

  • and then click 'next'

  • Okay! So now we need to enter the username & password

  • from SMTP2GO

  • So let's go there

  • and copy the username

  • and paste it here

  • and then copy the password

  • and paste it

  • Okay!

  • So, now to get the SMTP server details

  • let's click 'finish'

  • and copy the setting from here

  • and then paste it here

  • Now set the port to '25'

  • and click 'add account'

  • So, now gmail will send a confirmation code to your

  • business email

  • So let's go to gmail

  • and go to our inbox!

  • Now click this confirmation email

  • and copy this code

  • and paste it here

  • Now click 'verify'

  • and we are done!

  • Now if we go to 'settings'

  • and click 'accounts & import'

  • you can see that our business email, is now, added!

  • Now if you want, you can set this address as

  • the default 'from' address

  • If you want to set it as the default email address,

  • just click 'make default'

  • And now all the emails will

  • be sent from your business email

  • Okay, so now let's test it

  • by sending an email from our business email

  • and see if we're able to receive it

  • So let's click 'compose'

  • And you can see that the email is being sent from,

  • our business email

  • Now you can still send emails from your gmail address

  • by clicking here

  • and choosing your gmail address

  • Okay!

  • So now, we'll test

  • If we are able to send emails from our business email

  • So I'll select the business email

  • and enter a test email

  • And click 'send'

  • Now if we go to that inbox

  • You can see that, we've received the mail!

  • So let's open the mail

  • And now if we click here

  • you can see that the mail was sent from

  • our business email

  • Okay!

  • So now we're able to send emails from our business email

  • Next, we're going to see, how you can remove this message

  • which says "via smtpservice"

  • Now, this message is being shown,

  • since we're using SMTP2GO

  • If you don't want 'this message' to be shown on your emails

  • there is a way you can remove it

  • So Next

  • Let's see, how we can remove the "sent via" message

  • Okay!

  • So in order to remove this message

  • Let's go to smtp2go

  • and then go to 'settings'

  • and click 'sender domains'

  • Now click 'add a domain'

  • and, enter your domain

  • So, I'm going to enter quicktechy.com

  • and then click 'add domain'

  • So in order to remove that "sent via" message in gmail,

  • We need to give access to SMTP2GO to use our domain

  • For doing that, we need to add these entries

  • into our DNS page

  • Since our DNS provider is godaddy

  • Let's go there

  • and then click here

  • and click 'my products'

  • Now click 'DNS'
