Most of the Custom domain providers come with a built in Email system which lets you create an Email address based on your custom domain and check mail sent to that address. Email based on custom domain looks professional but managing mail on domain provider's Email system isn't something which everyone would like. The old 90's style theme and system sucks a lot. If you are a small business owner or a blogger, then it might not be interesting to invest for purchasing a paid subscription to manage Email on your custom domain Email.
A few years ago, Google started a project named as Google Apps which let site owners create and link their custom domain Email with Gmail for free. However after a period of time, they stopped free subscriptions and now only 1 month trial is available.
The price for their subscription is $5 per month or $50 annually. Everyone is not going to purchase their subscription with this rate and would try to search for free options. So I have a good news for those who want a free solution for their custom domain Email needs. Yes, you can have a free custom domain Email forwarding to Gmail even in 2015 with Zohomail. In this post I will show you how to do it. Lets start. This tutorial consists of two parts, first part consists of creating custom domain Email on Zohomail and in second part, I will show you how to forward Emails from Zohomail to Gmail.
1. Create Custom Domain Email On Zohomail For Free:a) Go to Zohomail.com. Click on "Get Started" or "Pricing" button. b) Sign-up with free account that provides you 5GB of free storage with one custom domain Email address. That is enough for a blogger or a small business holder.
