A business email address is a major factor for any sole businessperson, partnership or corporation because it creates a professional image. It will appeal to existing and prospective clients, suppliers and investors more so than the type of standard email addresses we use for personal, every day.
Setting up a .ca business email address
It is really easy to set up a business email account. The process is exactly the same as setting up any other kind of email address, and it will enable you to clearly distinguish between your personal and business-related email messages.
You can set up a Canadian email account for your personal use on Nili.ca. However, it’s better to create a more professional email account through a custom domain name. This means you can set up a branded email address with a custom .ca domain extension for your business.
Registering a .ca domain extension in the name of your business will immediately create a unique corporate identity and increase your credibility. With a .ca domain extension, you can also organise the internal structure of your business more efficiently by setting up separate email addresses for different areas or departments, rather than all emails being sent to and from a single address.
Register a domain name
You can register a domain name online in a matter of minutes for a low annual fee. Simply do a search about your ideal names and get some insight about the name availability.
It is best to choose a domain name that matches your business or company name. You can also use the domain name for your website address. This uniformity creates a strong brand image and online presence for your business.
Email accounts without domain name registration
Depending on the type of need you have, you may simply wish to set up an email address without registering a domain name. This is often the case with many sole proprietorships who work for just one or two clients and do not require a web presence.
