Do you have a business web site? Are you starting a hobby web site or blog that you hope may one day make you some money?

Professional Presence

But if your business is larger, you will probably need a seperate email address for each staff member, and perhpas even one for each department.

Regardless of how many you decide to have for your business, all email addresses will be of the following format:
