Why is a family domain name and email setup a good idea? If you’re tired of spelling out your ISP domain email this is the solution for you. For example: DM8945Smith@bigpond.com is an email address that is too hard to spell.
Your email is address is so important these days. It’s used everywhere from social media profiles to online shopping accounts, making it more important than your postal address!
The trap for some is getting locked-in to using their ISP email account (e.g @bigpond, @internode, @optus etc), and when they move to another ISP in the future (eg. move house or require a better internet deal), their ‘entrenched email’ is lost. It’s a big risk and an even bigger hassle when it happens.
