How to get a custom email/professionalemail ? name@name.com

        Do you want a cool email address like you@arealoser.com or chandler@bing.com guess what you can get it for FREE or maybe almost free. Every email has two part

 
1.     Username- which is unique in every domain but different domain names can use same username. It helps the mail delivery system to identify where a mail is suppose to go
2.     Domain- Domain name is the second part of the email and is our identity on the internet domain are readily available at very low cost
 
 
To explain further lets take an example the Address on a letter can be equivalent to domain name and the user name will be your personal name if the postman has to deliver a letter he will first go the address which is in our case domain name and then to the person he has to deliver in our case user name so if there two person(username) are at same address (domain) he will get confuse on whom to deliver but same username at different domain wont create the problem
