Gmail email for my domain name

If you use an email address like [email protected], it's no been because your business looks unprofessional!

Here, in this blog post, you will learn step by step how to create a personalized email address, using your own domain like [email protected] and how you can connect it to your Google Gmail account.

This way, you can send and receive emails using Gmail, but your customers will see the emails as coming from your domain name.

What you'll learn :
  • Step 1 - Create a professional and personalized email address with your own domain name
  • Step 2 - Use your newly created email address to send and receive email using Gmail
What you need:
  1. The domain name and web hosting (starting at about $5/month, for both!)
  2. Free Google Gmail account
  3. About 20 to 30 minutes of your time


First, you need to go get web hosting. We recommend that you use Bluehost or GreenGeeks (both companies offer a free domain name when you sign up for hosting with them).

The advantage of getting a domain name and hosting at the same place is that you don't have to configure name servers or play with DNS settings.

Ok, so you've got a web hosting and a domain name, and they're connected (again, we recommend Bluehost or GreenGeeks because you don't need to update the DNS settings).

Now it's time to go and create a new Gmail address, something like [email protected]

 . Gmail login to your Bluehost or GreenGeeks cPanel > Email Section > Email  Accounts

. Select the domain to which you want your email account to be associated from the drop-down list and enter the desired email and a strong password of your choice.*

1. Make a selection for the mailbox quota (choose unlimited or set your own quota)

2. Click Create Account.

It's done! You have now created your personalized email address, something like [email protected]

Now what?


Let's go back to cPanel and find your email settings.

Login to your cPanel > Email Section > Email Accounts

       . Click on the cogwheel icon that says Configure / Set up, an email client 
           (next to the custom email address you created)

 Under Manual Setting, there's a Secure SSL/TLS Settings box (copy & paste or keep this           window  open as we'll need this information later when we configure Gmail)

Good! Because you'll need to have these settings in front of you to configure Gmail to send and receive an email (later).


Gmail (Google Mail) is great and it's free. You get 15 GB of storage and you also get access to Google Drive (cloud storage for your photos and files, and you can create and share documents, spreadsheets and make presentations).

You can also sign in to multiple Gmail accounts at once (which means you can easily switch between your personal and business inboxes).

By now you should have created a sparkling new Gmail email address, something like [email protected]


Before configuring Gmail, we need to create any email forwarding.

Now let's go back to cPanel and create an email forwarding. That is, we want to forward your [email protected] to [email protected])

   . Login to your cPanel > Email section > Redirectors

   . Click the Add Forwarder button

        . Set what email address you want the email address to be forwarded to (destination).

That's it. That's it. Now, all emails sent to [email protected] will be forwarded to [email protected]


1. Sign in to your Gmail account
2. In the upper right corner, click on the Settings cog icon and choose Settings
3. Click on Accounts and Import
4. Click on "Add a POP3 email account you have".

. Enter your Email address, e.g. [email protected]

 . Click the Next Step button.

Refer to the cPanel email settings that you noted before.
Enter your full email address as your username
Enter your email account password
Enter the incoming POP server. Choose the option Always use a secure connection (SSL). Make sure the port is changed to 995
Choose the additional options you want
Click on the Add Account button


Choose Yes, I want to be able to send mail as e.g. [email protected]

Uncheck the box "Treat as an alias" (if you leave it checked, your email recipients will see a       message saying "email is sent on behalf of [email protected]".) - which doesn't sound very professional).

Click the Next Step button.

Refer to the cPanel email settings that you noted before.
Enter the outgoing SMTP server
Enter your full email address as your username
Enter your email account password
Choose Secure SSL Connection. Make sure the port is changed to 465
Click on Add Account

Check your e-mail address
As we configured the email forwarding before, a confirmation email will be sent to your Gmail.

. Click on the confirmation link in the email or copy/paste the PIN
It's done! You can now send and receive an email with Gmail


If e-mail is important to you, you need to get an e-mail address that looks professional. Because having an @hotmail, @yahoo or @gmail email address is not enough!

Here we have explained (step by step) how you can create a personalized email address using your own domain name. We recommend that you get a domain name and hosting from Bluehost or GreenGeeks 
We've also shown you how to connect this email address to a free Gmail account so that you can both send and receive emails from Google's email solution.
