Every Oakley Studio website is built on a unique domain name. Your domain name is your unique online branding for your business. It is a valuable asset of your business and you can expect to use it for many years to come. If you don’t have a domain name yet, we’ll help you choose a great one. We register the new domain name for you, and annual renewals are included free with your Oakley Studio website hosting service.
Be as professional as possible — use your domain name email. Then every message you send helps promote your own website. You may have up to 5 domain name email addresses included with your Oakley Studio managed website hosting service. (Add more email accounts as your business grows.) We provide an excellent Webmail portal so you can send and receive your domain name email wherever you are, on any device. If you prefer, you may use Outlook, Mac Mail, Thunderbird, or any other email application on your phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Set up forwarding to another address such as Gmail, and use our helpful step-by-step guide to configure Gmail to use your domain name address for sending and receiving.
