    Basically I'm looking at buying a domain name and using it for an email, I have found domain names available for both my first name and last name.
    Which one looks better as an email?

    • [Firstname]@[Lastname].co (yes .co not .com)

    • [Firstname]@[Lastname].org

    [email protected][Firstname].co.uk

    Cheers!

    Not a fan of @ in-between your names, but [firstname]@[lastname].co.uk is the best of the three in my opinion.

    gmail is fine for formal email these days.

    But if you really want to go down this route [Firstname]@[Lastname].org is best

    Because the [Firstname]@[Lastname].co (yes .co not .com) option is likely to be mistyped as .co.uk or .com (Looking at you Snufkin )

    Oh .co is a thing? I assumed the OP made a typo... I don't like .co :afraid:
