Having a professional email address is essential in today’s digital world. It not only conveys credibility but also ensures that your emails stand out in a crowded inbox. If you’re using SmartHost services, you’re in luck! The SmartHost Customer Portal makes this process seamless.
Why a Professional Email Address Matters
Before we delve into the ‘how-to’, it’s crucial to understand the ‘why’. A custom email address, especially one associated with your domain, gives a more polished image. Imagine comparing ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ with ‘email@example.com’. The latter immediately speaks volumes about professionalism and can significantly influence first impressions, especially in business correspondence.
