    Getting a .ltd domain and hosting email with Google 12th Aug 18 at 7:15 PM
    Hi, only familiar with google mail. Setting up a .ltd email but google don't seem to sell .ltd domains. If I buy the domain from another (e.g. godddy) is it easy to then host email with Google? Thanks.

    If you buy a domain from another host they will also be able to provide you with an email address @ that domain.
    I use 123-reg for my hosting.
    If you want to use your @ that domain email address in google mail you will need to pay to be a g suite member which is around 3.50 / month.
    You could also get do daddy or whoever to forward your @ that domain email address to your personal google mail address but then if you reply if will come from your personal @ gmail.com address.

    That's a good answer - but I would ask the OP why they would want their emails to come from gmail rather than from their own domain?

    Email from your domain would look more professional!

    .ltd domains are pointless for a genuine business, you need a .co.uk

    You can set up gmail to use your @*.ltd address so you can send emails it's not perfect but the domain does not need to be held by google.

    https://support.google.com/mail/answer/22370?hl=en-GB&authuser=1

    The recipient see's in the "From:" line:
    From: yourname@gmail.com on behalf of othername@otherdomain.com

    It's not perfect but possible.

I would like to use Google as (email) hoster because I've had no problems with their free hosting (e.g. great spam filter); it looks like I can get a "co.uk" domain from Google and use that with "G Suite" for 3.50 per month. I am checking what "G Suite" gives me now...
