General Information
I do not want to put up a website for the near future. However, I do want to use as an email address for business purposes.

I am planning on using Gmail to access the email using POP3 or having auto-forward everything to my Gmail.

Your help is much appreciated thanks!

Hello Marky543,

In order to have mail service, you would need to have a hosting account. You can have a the hosting service and not use the website until you wish to, but email is only provided when you purchase the hosting service.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
