Today looking professional includes a consistent image on the internet. Your email address looks a lot better with firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com.
Jon Doe has a small parts business. He uses America Online to access the internet and has a email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. He uses his email to receive messages for both his business and to keep in touch with friends. His web site is at http://members.aol.com/jdoeparts .
To provide a better image I provide him with a internet domain name of jdoeparts.com and configure http://www.jdoeparts.com to go to his AOL website. I also setup an email alias Jon@jdoeparts.com that delivers messages to his AOL email address.
As his business grows he creates a new website at a web hosting company. I change his configuration to point to the new location. His customers see the new web pages when they visit www.jdoeparts.com. Jon also has obtained a business DSL connection to the internet and has new email addresses available. I change the email alias so messages sent to Jon@jdoeparts.com are now delivered to his new email address.
He can now end his AOL subscription and his customers never know he has changed services.
