How Are Domains & Email Managed?

At minimum, a website requires the following managed services: web hosting, domain hosting, and email hosting. Web hosting controls your website content, domain hosting controls your web address, and email hosting controls your inbox.
It’s best practice to keep your email hosting separate from your web and domain hosting for higher reliability and greater flexibility.
For this reason, when you choose a Turnkey website plan you’ll need to find an email provider separate from our service. We host your website and domain, not your email.
A domain is the URL (web address) your customers type or click to get to your website. All of your website traffic flows through your domain, so a top-rated domain hosting service is strongly recommended to get the best performance from your Turnkey website.
All of our website plans include a custom .com domain of your choice managed by us for your convenience and peace of mind.
If you however already own the domain you wish to use, or want to manage the domain yourself, this handy guide will walk you through the setup process.
Your Email Address
Once you have a custom domain (either hosted by you or hosted by us), you can purchase a Google Workspace plan and get as many custom email addresses as you need, like email@example.com.
With Google Workspace get a 14-day free trial to see if it’s right for your business. Google Workspace includes 30GB of Drive storage, as well as Google Calendar, Docs, Sheets and Slides.
An excellent alternative is Namecheap Private Email. It’s hosted on a different server than a Namecheap hosted domain, so if your domain ever goes down temporarily your email will still be active to communicate with customers.
