When I first started out I used an @hotmail.com address for my business. This was in 2004 before @gmail.com was public. But after I few years I knew it was time for an @MyDomain.com email address. By then I had a gmail account and I loved the ease of it so signing up with Google Apps was a no-brainer.
Your Google Apps email looks just like gmail but the address will be @YourDomain.com instead of @gmail.com. The cost is $5 a month per user or $50 a year.
