One of the first things I tell people when they are creating a website or purchasing a domain is to set up their email accounts. It is much more professional to give out email@example.com verses firstname.lastname@example.org. Not only does it look better on your business cards but it does more then that. Every time someone emails you the domain name is in their head. It reminds them of who YOU are and hopefully they’ll take a moment to stop by your domain.
