For that extra professional touch.
A JobMob reader asks:
I have a professional question. Do you know how someone gets a domain name that is their name? As in email@example.com?
There are actually 2 parts to the question:
1) How do you get your own domain name?
2) How do you use that domain for a website and/or email?
In this article I’ll answer the first question, and I’ll answer the second question in a followup. Continue reading >> How To Get and Use Your Own Domain Name
