Why not use the domain email which is free with your hosting account?

Most of the people who are new to web design and blogging don’t understand the capabilities that come free with their domain, so they don’t take advantage of them.

Why not use the domain email which is free with your hosting account? Using email addresses like will look much more professional than the personal email—and the best part is, it’s free!

Forwarded email addresses are sometimes called “aliases”. An alias, as you know, is another name that refers to a given person. This means you can have any email address you want provided you own the domain name, and you’ll be able to access it from anywhere a browser is handy. Setting it up is a little intimidating, but if you follow these steps, you should be in the clear. (And you only have to set it up once!)

Some important integrate to get your new domain email with Gmail.

Sign in to your Gmail account.
Go to options, then to mail settings then click accounts and imports.
Check send mail as and click on add another email address.
In the popup that appears, fill in your details add the new domain email address you just created then click next.
Click on send verification and a verification email will be delivered to your inbox. Simply click on the link to verify it and you are done.
Now click on compose email and see the changes you’ve made in action.
I hope these steps are clear enough for you to set up your own domain email address.

When you register multiple domain names

If you're thinking about registering more than one domain name, you've got the right idea. Registering and using multiple domains names is great for building your business, protecting your brand name, and creating a dynamic online identity.

When you register multiple domain names, you can keep your competition from registering a similar domain name drawing customers to them.
Promote the different products and services. Drive more traffic to your website. Enjoy more opportunities to market to be listed in search engines. Create distinct advertising strategies reaching different target markets. Provide customers more ways to find you when searching the Internet
Capture common misspellings of your domain name, instead of sending visitors to an error page
Protect your brand and online identity.

Get extra credit if they can show they've registered an internet domainname for themselves. This will no longer be optional,  it will be a requirement.
 That's a key reason why each of us needs to be one of the voices (preferably the most prominent) defining us. To the extent that they live public lives in any way and like it or not, it's getting harder not to be public in some way tomorrow's adults will need an online home that they control. They need an online home, a place where they tell the world who they are and what they've done, where they post their own work, or at least some of it.

Domain upgrade

A domain controller can communicate with all domain members or workstations but there is a limitation to the Active Directory (AD) System. The limitation is that the domain controller must host a Windows-based operating system. It means that all the domain members must also use the Windows operating system.

Fortunately, this limitation can now be overcome by use of Samba. Samba is open source software that allows workstations running other operating systems like OpenVMS, IBM System 390, UNIX and Linux to interact with the domain controller. This is advantageous as because of this network administrators gets much more flexibility in setting up a computer network. It is particularly very useful in large organizations in which different departments need different operating systems.

The recommended way to upgrade a domain is to promote domain controllers that run newer versions of Windows Server and demote older domain controllers as needed. That method is preferable to upgrading the operating system of an existing domain controller. You promote a domain controller that runs a newer version of Windows Server. When you upgrade the operating system on domain controllers, the computer immediately assumes the role of domain controller after the final restart of the computer. It is not necessary to install Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) by using the Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard.
