How to Use Gmail With Your Custom Domain (Coupon Code Included!)

Having an email address with a custom domain gives you a certain level of professionalism.

I mean, would you take me more seriously if my email address is raelyn4534[at]gmail.com or raelyn[at]raelyntan.com?

The latter sounds more professional, right?


Most cpanel email clients are extremely clunky

Most hosts allow you to create an email address with your custom domain, but accessing your email is very troublesome if you are always doing it via your Cpanel.

I find the hosting Cpanel interface extremely clunky and slow.

After changing to gmail for my email address, things have been soooo much faster for me! My email used to always block out emails and the clunky interface really affected my response rates.

For just $5/ month,  you can use Gmail as your email client instead, PLUS have a custom domain as your email address.

Sounds like a good deal to me.

Today, I’ll teach you exactly how you can do that!
