Gmail and Hotmail provide excellent free email service. They both provide many free tools with their email service. Have you ever thought to create your email company like Gmail, Hotmail? Yeah ! Many times, but didn’t find any good site to do this. Here is the guide to create your professional email services like Gmail and Hotmail. All you must have is a domain name and good knowledge of Internet. We will do this by registering with Windows Live Domains which provides 500 free email accounts with 5 GB Space in each account and with many free services.
Steps to Create your Email Company
- First of all, Go to https://domains.live.com. It requires your Hotmail Username and password, so keep them ready.
- Now, you have reached the Windows Live Admin Center, Click “Sign in”, at the login page, enter your Hotmail email address and password then click “Sign in”. I have registered two domains at there, so I will get a different page than the new ones.
- Click “Add Domain” button; then you will get a page saying “Create a Windows Live experience for your domain.”
- Enter your domain name in the field labeled “Provide your domain name” and mark the “Set up Windows Live Hotmail for my domain” and click “Continue”.
- Now, you’ve reached the page “Review Settings and accept agreement”, Click “I accept.” Then you will be redirected to the “Domain Settings” page.
- Now, all the settings in the Windows Live Domains have been setup, now go to your “Domain Manage” panel and change MX Records.
What happens after 500 Email accounts exceeded?
Windows Live Domains provides 500 email accounts, so you (and other users) can create 500 email accounts, what if you exceed this? The solution is available. Windows Live Domains provides more email accounts on the request of the domain admin. So, when you exceed it, just ask for more accounts.
Promote your Email Service
After getting email service, it’s time to promote it. Promote it on your blog/website, in emails, on business cards, etc. way. The more you promote, the more users you’ll get. You are not getting just the Email service for your domain, but you are getting lots of services free with it. You get SkyDrive (25 GB Free Space), Photos, etc. So, attract your visitors with these free services.
