Emailing is a critical activity that every business partakes in, so it is important to have a company email that matches your domain name. For example, your company emails will follow yourname@yourcompany.com. By linking the two you will have instant brand recognition from customers who are trying to contact you. Email marketing campaigns will also be coming from your reputable company email accounts. By having your company name after the @ symbol, you will increase the trust in your customer relationships and have consistent contact information across every employee.

If another web hosting company owns your domain, you will not have the option to switch to another website hosting with your domain. Website design and development is constantly changing, along with the web hosting websites, so it is crucial to own your domain.
