Firstly, apologies - I know this must have been done before, but I can't find what I am looking for in a search.

My website is hosted by Wordpress.com but I need a business email address (preferably for free).

I want the usual, myname@mybusiness.co.uk

I can't seem to see if Wordpress offer this. Does anyone know enough about Wordpress.com to advise me?

TIA

You will need to pay for this unless you own the domain yoursite@yourbusiness.co.uk and therefore all rights to it.

The reason? It's going to cost the host money to buy the site yourbusiness.co.uk - so they're not going to give you an email address for free!

Yeah. You have to buy yourself a domain name. Then you'll get email.

Is your website business.wordpress.com? Or is it nameofbusiness.com?

Oh, I see.

Tee it's nameofbusiness.com

Then you have a domain. And you have hosting somewhere. Most, if not all, hosting companies include email addresses with your hosting.

Ok thanks Tee. I will try to contact Wordpress then and maybe they can arrange one for me.
