Create a new email account

Emails are an integral form of communication in the modern world. You need an email address to do just about anything. If you want to register for a service, enroll in a program, set up login information, employment, or buy a car – you need an email address. Whether you need a free personal email or a business email, having a secure and user-friendly email provider is essential for both your productivity and your ability to function in society. With the endless options for email providers available, choosing the right provider can be an overwhelming task. Wondering “how do I create a new email account?” We’ll help you to figure out how to select the best email provider for you.

How to select an email provider?

Here are some of the most important email provider criteria to consider when it’s time to set up a new email account:

  • Reputation: Your email provider should have a great reputation and not be known for any scams. If your potential email provider has a suspicious website and online presence, you should look for other options. One of the first things clients and recipients notice is your email address name and domain. If your email provider has a bad reputation; it’ll give you a bad reputation or could be possibly dangerous and could cause your messages to end in Junk folders of your recipients!
  • Archive: Dependable email providers should give you the basic abilities to save, store, archive, and search your messages.
  • Security: Security is a must in our modern world. No one wants unauthorized people gaining access to their email account! The account setup should require a secure password at a minimum. The provider should also offer additional security options; such as app passwords, security questions, two-factor authentication, etc.
  • Spam Filter: Spam messages are both irritating and unavoidable. It is important to ensure that your email provider has a good system that detects and filters spam messages. Otherwise, you’ll be drowning in spam.
  • Storage: Storage is an important aspect when selecting an email provider because if you run out of storage unexpectedly; you’ll stop receiving new messages.

Fun fact: Did you know that free email service providers aren’t entirely free? You might not be paying with money…but you are paying the price of weakened security and increased advertisements. Free email providers scan your emails for keywords and metadata to be used for marketing. This isn’t hidden information – it’s usually written in the email service provider’s Terms of Use. It’s up to you to decide if this potential loss of privacy is worth it for a free email account.

Paid emails:

If there’s so many free options, why would anyone want to pay for their email provider? Paid emails have their advantages. Paid emails won’t show you advertisements and are less likely to scan your emails for information. They offer increased security for anyone concerned about potential hackers. Some providers will expand your storage or give you the ability to use your custom domain.
