How to create a website (compatible with business email):

This video shows you the simplest way to create a business email (using just your domain) and set it up with Gmail.


00:00 – Create a business email address on your domain

10:43 – Create multiple business email addresses on your domain

14:28 – Create a group email address

Let’s get started!

===== Creating your 1st Business Email =====

Step 1: Login to your Domain Provider’s Website

If you already have a domain, then login to your domain provider’s website. If not, you can get a domain easily by clicking here ➜

Step 2: Enable Email Forwarding

This will forward all the mails coming to your business email address to Gmail. To enable email forwarding, setup your workspace email. Then create a forward by clicking manage. Now, enter the business email that you want to create.
For Example, you can enter something like [email protected], or [email protected]

Then enter an existing gmail address to which you want to forward the mails to!

Step 3: Create your Zoho-Mail Account

What is Zoho and Why are we using it?

Zoho is a free email service which handles the sending of emails from our domain. By using Zoho, we can avoid paying separately for our business email.

To create a Zoho account: Go to and sign-up for the free plan.

Step 4: Verify our domain.

Continue the setup by choosing your DNS provider. Next, you need to enter the details shown in Zoho, to your Domain Provider’s DNS page. So just, go to Godaddy and then under domains, click Manage DNS. Then, add the details from Zoho.

After adding it, click verify your domain and proceed with the setup. Skip to the SPF (Sender Policy Framework) page where you need to again enter the details to GoDaddy.

Once you’re done, then again skip the pages till you reach the Mail Client Configuration.

Step 5: Connect your Zoho account with Gmail

Next, login to Gmail and then go to settings. Click Accounts & Import and then click add another email address.

Now enter the new email address and also the “From” name that you want to use. Then, Gmail will ask you for server details, so you need to go back to Zoho and copy the details from the outgoing server and then paste it in the box.

In the username field, enter the business email address and then enter the same password, that you used in Zoho. Now, use the confirmation code to verify your account.

Okay! Now, the Zoho account has been connected to Gmail. Now, if you click compose and then click the arrow in the “From” field, you’ll see the new email address. Now, let’s set this as the default email address.

To do that: Go back to settings and then to Accounts & Import. Next to your new email address, click make default.

That’s it! This is how you can create a free business email id and use it with Gmail.

===== Creating more emails on your domain =====

Step 1: Create an Email Forward in GoDaddy

Go to GoDaddy and under workspace email click manage. Then create a forward. Enter the email id’s that you want to create and then type the existing Gmail address to which you want to forward the incoming mails to!

Step 2: Create a new user in Zoho

Go to and then go to the control panel.
You’ll then see a notice saying action required! Don’t worry about it, just continue by clicking okay! and go to user details to add a new user.

Step 3: Add the email to the User’s Gmail account

Login to Gmail and then go into settings and click Accounts & Import. Next to send email as click add another email address. Now, enter the “From” name and the same email address here and click next. Set the server details as including the port as 465. Then enter the full email address with the same password that you used in Zoho. Then add this account by entering the confirmation code.

That’s it! Now, when you’re composing a mail, you can select the new email address by clicking the arrow in the From section.

You can follow these 3 simple steps, for every new email address that you want to create. You can add up to 25 users for free on Zoho.

===== Creating a Group Email =====

Now, a group email helps you send an email to a group of people in your team with addresses like [email protected] or [email protected]

Creating a group email is very simple:

Just go to your GoDaddy account and click create forward. Now enter the group email that you want to create and then enter the email addresses of all the people to whom you want to forward the mails to.

That’s it! We’re done.

This is how you can email all your team members at once, using Group Email.
