    Should You Offer E-mail? - More Methods


    (Page 4 of 4 )

    2) Use your domain hosting service. If you own your own domain name (which roughly boils down to you owning your site, instead of receiving a free site through a hosting service), it’s highly possible that you have the option of adding e-mail at any time. Many domain hosting services (such as MyDomain, pictured) not only provide domain names to their subscribers, but also many features and tools which can be used to improve and expand your site. Often, these features include free e-mail accounts you can offer to your traffic at no additional cost to them. This way, you’ll get regular users and registered members on your site, which can be invaluable if you’d like to update them on new offers, products, messages or any number of new additions and changes to the site itself.


    3) Use an existing mail server which provides e-mail service for Web pages. If you don’t have the option of going through a Web site or domain host, or if you’d simply rather not, you can find mail servers which can actually be employed on your own site. For instance, CommuniGate (pictured) gives you an HTTP module which you can place on your site. This module allows traffic to compose and read messages, along with other e-mail account management features. This very full service helps you manage everything about the e-mail you provide to others. CommuniGate doesn’t at all have this market cornered, so spend some time looking for other reliable mail servers to find the one that works best for your site’s needs.

    Offering E-Mail

    Offering e-mail certainly isn’t required to make a site successful, but it does bring new depth and interest to your pages. If you can offer the service for free and you think it would be a good addition to your pages, there’s no reason you can’t include e-mail on your site. Should you offer e-mail? Sites can do well without it, but you may find you enjoy more success when you offer your users this extremely popular form of communication.
