    Hi folks was looking for a little info on getting a email adress with a specific name for about 7 users, e.g, joe1@bloggins.com, joe2@bloggins.com, I have found a domain name which is available but was wondering if you genrally are able to get a certain number of user accounts with the domain or have t pay for each additional user? Ive never done this before so would appreciate any info and pointers to good domain hosts!

    I use Dreamhost, have since 2004. I don't even remember if they have a cap on e-mail addresses, but I have mine managed through Google Mail, so I'm limited by Google to 50 (Though I'm fairly certain you have a huge number usable)

    Their packages are great, and every week you get more storage and bandwidth, just for staying a customer.

    Just for an example:

    Plan Starting Growth Rate Growth So Far Currently Provided
    My Crazy Domain Insane 4096 GB 40 GB/week +4239 GB 8335 GB

    I pay $190 for two years, and get an extra 40GB of bandwidth weekly. I don't even know how I'd use 8TB, but I have it (I mostly just use my site for storing images) and that includes a domain registration with the hosting package.


    I don't know if you need hosting or just a domain, but they only charge $9.95 a year for domain names.
