What do I put in an address

It's that easy to create a professional email address

(Update) There are currently over 3 billion e-mail accounts worldwide and many more e-mail addresses. The trend is rapidly increasing. A large number of these addresses are registered with providers of free e-mail services. The advantage: It's quick and easy and it's free. But there are also distinct disadvantages: For one thing, it is becoming increasingly difficult to register attractive email names using free email services. Second, you usually have to accept advertisements. The main problem, however, is that your customers typically don't see these types of email addresses as a legitimate business email address. Be professional with an individual email address. It's easy.

In Germany, more than 80% of all internet users use the web to send and receive e-mails. If you want to do business, you should also be available at your own e-mail address. At Host Europe you can quickly and easily set up an individual e-mail address with which you can communicate securely and professionally with your customers - and of course also privately with your friends and acquaintances.

E-Mail-Basic offers you the possibility of creating an individual e-mail address directly for your personal domain.

First choose a suitable domain name for your business. There are hundreds of different domain extensions to choose from. Test whether your desired domain is still available and, if necessary, simply select a different domain extension. You will find a practical overview of the domain categories at www.hosteurope.de/Domain-Namen.

As soon as you have found a suitable domain name, you should register it as soon as possible before someone else snaps it away from you. Because attractive domain names are extremely popular.
