Hi Friends

The no. of daily unique visitors are goin up day by day now , this is really very inspiring . I hope you enjoyed my previous posts . If u enjoyed and even if u didn’t please let me know your comments and suggestions .

Now back to the main topic . This article is for dummies. And dummies doesn’t mean fools . Making your own personalized email addressee is as easy opening a gmail account if you know the correct way .

Just follow these simple steps :

  1. Ok first you have to buy a domain. If possible buy from a local source , don’t go for big players . If don’t know anybody you can go for GODADDY.com , they offer reasonably cheap domains . You can buy .info for 1$ . I recently bought one from a delhi(new friends colony) based firm for Rs.349/. You can contact me for details . You will receive your host settings where you can change the name servers . BTW you can also buy domain from google at 10$.
  2. Now you have to point your name server to some dns control . You can try http://www.opendns.com . It is a good one. If you also have host ready to put your site up , you can point your name servers to it . In opendns case : your name server should 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 . Open an account there and add your site to it . This takes around 10-30 hours to setup completely .
  3. Now , go to http://google.com/a/ , open an account , add your website . You need to verify that you are the owner of that domain . For this you have 2 option :

i) change your domain cname setting according to google one (google will tell you about the settings to implement )

ii) If you are also hosting your website on some host service. You just need to add a html file for it . Google will tell you the specifications. This will be done at once while first option take some time .

  1. Now you just need to change your MX settings (which actually point to you mail server) according to google ones .
  2. All done , now just activate your mail feature and start using your new email domain like abc@xyz.com , not abc@gmail.com

Thrilled that you enjoy OpenDNS… but it’s not an authoritative DNS server for your domains, at this point.

If you register a domain and point the DNS at OpenDNS nameservers, it will not work.

thanx john for your comments , actually opendns was suggested by one of my friend , my domain is hosted on bluehost which allows change in MX settings
