Having a custom domain name will help you create your own identity on the internet. If you are serious about establishing your authority and identity, having a customized email address using your domain will let customers know that you mean serious business. Receiving an email from service@business.com has a higher chance of yielding expected results than the same content being sent by servicebusiness@gmail.com.

Use Gmail With Custom Domain

Why use Gmail with a custom domain


  • Credibility - Do you know customers are 9 times more likely to choose a business with a professional email address? If you’re running your own business, your customized email address will reflect your identity, just like your business card and letterhead. Email on your own domain name gives you optimum exposure on the internet and allows people to easily reach you.
  • Simplicity - When you have a custom domain email address, it is easier for people to contact you. Your audience will find your personalized email address easier to remember when they need it. As long as they know your domain name, they can remember your email address.
  • Consistency - With some email addresses like @comcast.net, you can’t take them with you if you switch internet providers. You can maintain consistency and an appearance of reliability when you have a custom email address that you can take with you no matter what.
You can have a custom domain email account service@business.com by signing up for our email hosting in a few simple steps.

How to use a custom email address with Gmail


1. Log in to your Gmail account and click on the Gear Icon at the upper right hand corner, and then click Settings.
2. Click the Accounts and Import tab. Scroll down to Check Mail from other accounts and click Add a mail account.
3. A pop-up window will appear asking you to add your email address. Type in your newly created email address service@business.com and click Next.
4. Accept Import emails from my other account (POP3) and click Next.
5. Now you will need to add your Email Configuration Settings for service@business.com:
  • Username: Your email address service@business.com
  • Password: Enter your email password
  • POP Server: pop.dynu.com
  • Port: 995
  • Check the following boxes:
  • Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server.
  • Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail (only if you are using SSL)
  • Label incoming messages
6. Once you are done with your settings, click Add Account.
7. Next Gmail will ask if you want to be able to retrieve mail from this account – leave Yes checked and click Next.
8. Change the Name to the name you would like to appear whenever you send an email – it could be your personal name or your company name. Click Next Step.
9. Now we are going to input the Outgoing Server details from your Email Configuration Settings for service@business.com:
  • SMTP Server: smtp.dynu.com
  • Port: 465
  • Username: Your email address service@business.com
  • Password: Your email password
  • Check the Secured connection using SSL if using SSL setting.
  • Click Add Account.
10. Gmail will now need to verify that you own this email account by sending you an email with a verification number. To access this email, you will need to log into your Webmail at https://webmail.dynu.com. Once verified, your email address is all set up to work with Gmail.
