What is E-Mail for Life?
E-mail for life is your ability to keep one e-mail address for the rest of your life. The only thing you need to do is keep paying your hosting and registration fee. We suggest the 10 year plan to save you money and make it as easy for you as possible.
1 payment = 1 address for the next 10 years
it's that easy
Does this mean I connect to the Internet through claimthatdomain.com?
No, you still connect to the Internet through your regular Internet service provider.
How do I get my mail?
You get your mail exactly as you do today, we simply forward email@example.com to you at whatever e-mail address you choose.
What if I switch to a cable modem or DSL connection?
No problem. You send us your new connecting e-mail address, and we will change the server to forward all firstname.lastname@example.org to that new address.
What will my address be?
Your address can be any combination of letters and numbers that you want. If your domain is johnsmith.com, your e-mail could be anything such as email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com. You just can't use special characters like &, *, ", etc.
How do additional e-mail addresses work?
With one address, firstname.lastname@example.org forwards to the same e-mail address. Example: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com all forward to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With additional e-mail addresses, almosteverything@thatdomain,.com forwards to the same e-mail address, but specific addresses forward to different e-mail addresses. Example: email@example.com forwards to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com forwards to firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com forwards to firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I put up my own pages?
Sure, we can send you the password and login information.
