Website/Domain

I'm getting our domain through godaddy and plan to create a website on OwnerRez. Do you suggest I get the domain privacy and protection plan for an extra $10 per year or is that not necessary? And can I just use a regular gmaill account or do I need a special one that I have to pay extra for? Sorry, I've searched and searched and can't find any info on any of this and I'm completely clueless with this part!

Hi! I did the same - registered for a name on GoDaddy and site is thru OR. The privacy thing is totally your decision. I would suggest you think about getting an email that's affiliated with your web site. Makes it look more professional. You can even do info@nameofproperty.com or something similar. Just make sure to get OR to "Verify" your email address. What that means is when you send correspondence from within OR it will go out from YOUR email rather than from a randomized OR address.

Jamie - I have my domain through godaddy, my website is not with them (and also not with OwnerRez) but for email I just use godaddy's "Email Forwarding - 100 PackFree Account forwarding with domain" to have emails sent towards the domain get redirected to my own email acct.

Example:

your website = www.jamierentals.com
your email redirect: owner@jamierentals.com can get redirected to jamie.lastname@gmail.com

You can set up multiple emails like this and give some out generically and keep others more private if you like. That might help you if you like to have emails automatically routed to certain folders, for instance info@jamierentals.com and help@jamierentals.com and marketing@jamierentals.com could all be different emails that end up at your jamie.lastname@gmail.com

The email forwarding has been free forever, but it could always change I suppose.
