    Can someone please explain how best to set-up a domain name as an email
    address so that I can use it as a permanent email address even when
    changing ISP's.

    You will need to purchase an applicable domain name, and usually most
    suppliers will give you email addresses to go with it (for a price).

    Try www.oneandone.co.uk or www.123-reg.co.uk.

    Buy a domain and pay for hosting it.

    You register the domain and pay for hosting. I do this I have my own domain
    and email I use http://www.ipowerweb.com/ for my hosting but it is only one
    of many hostings you can get. I pay a hundred dollars a year. I have webpage
    space and emails. For example if your name was Alan Green and the domain
    alangreen.com was available you could get it and anyone that went to
    www.alangreen.com would go to your website and you could have any email that
    was @alangreen.com so you could have the email This would
    be yours for as long as you pay the yearly renewals no mater what ISP you
    choose to use. Hope this helps?

    Just stay away from Joker.com, RegistryWeb, SpecialistWeb and all the
    look-alike ??Web !!
    Joker.com *is* a joker; you cannot get to a real person, the system
    acts a bit like the 1980's Eliza headshrink program.
    Their system acts like you as administrator do not exist if you try to
    transfer registration.
    And they want $70 plus lots of documentation sent to Germany to
    "prove" that you exist and are you are the administrator.
    And there is no way of knowing if such a persuit will do anything,
    other than enrich them.

    If you want to transfer registration from RegistryWeb (etc), they
    demand $50 in so-called contract cancellation fees that they claim they
    have to pay.

    All bullshit to falsely extract money from you if you are stupid
    enough to get stuck with them, and then foolish enough to think you can
    move.

    Been burned by them, and still burning.
    You can damn well bet they will not ever get one more penny from me;
    the domains can die.

    Thanks to everyone who replied,very helpful indeed.

    Before signing out I would like to ask one more question regarding the
    name choice before the @ sign in my new domain name - email address. I
    have read that one should not use a personal name in an email address as
    in this example: [] What are members opinions on
    this please.

    I use easily.co.uk, very easy to use about £10-£30 for two years depending
    if you use .co.uk, .com, etc. You can anything before the @ in your email
    address, some people use admin (as an example) but using your name is fine,
    you want people to know who they are sending the email too!
