An email address is essentially made up of two parts -
The bit before the "@" sign can be virtually anything you want, including "." if necessary to make it more readable. So, you could have jackie@ or Jackie.Campbell@ or sales@ or sales.admin.office@ or any other combination. Note that capitalisation makes no difference and is ignored by 99% of servers, so for clarity, you can use capital letters in your email.
The bit after the "@" sign is called the domain.
Your domain has to be truly unique.
There are various rules about domains. Firstly, issues around copyright and legal
ownership must be avoided and don't even try to grab someone else's trademark or
You can use up to 63 characters in the Domain Name. No spaces. No underscores.
Use letters, numbers and hyphens -
There are other (and changing) rules about domain names and we cannot give advice,
legal or otherwise, on the viability or legality of any proposed domain -
The extension of the domain name, sometimes referred to as the TLD (Top Level Domain) is whether your domain ends in .co.uk, .com, .eu, or whatever. We have several of the most popular TLDs in UK, Ireland and the US, but we cannot provide .ie addresses at the moment. You will see that prices vary for the domain name, dependent on the TLD.
You must officially register your domain and you keep it for a fixed term before it needs renewed (2 full years in our case for all domains).
