So how do I go about setting up an email account with IDS hosting?
How much does it cost?
For R175 per year you have unlimited emails.
Why do I need my own domain for an email account?
To have a custom email address is the purpose of the exercise, for your business etc.
firstname.lastname@example.org is an example. You or us register the ‘mydomain’ with the relevant registrar, like co.za, org.za, za.net etc and you add in the name before the @ sign via your Control panel, here you can add anyname or word. The custom email creates a good impression all round for a business, club etc.
As your business grows and you employ more staff you can allocate each with a new corporate email address which you can set up to be accessed via your email client such as MS Outlook,MS Express, Mozilla Thunderbird etc. at no extra cost.
