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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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'
