Want an email (and Web) address that doesn't change even if you change your Internet service provider? Try ForeverMail, which provides a permanent "forwarding service." You can email them at
Or get your own web page (www.storyteller.net/yourname) and a permanent forwarding address (yourname @ storyteller.net) at http://www.storyteller.net. This service is an "exchange" service - you can pay $15 per year or contribute an article, interview, etc.
Better yet, get your own domain name, and an account that gives you your own mailbox. Then your permanent email address can be like mine ("
"): "yourname@yourbusinessname." Or like Jay O'Callahan's: "
." If you go one step further and have unlimited email aliases, you can set up trackable email names for all your ads, email campaigns, etc. Thus, I know that any replies I get to "
" come from my ad in the Utne Reader. But the replies go to my regular email address, so there's no extra work in getting them!
Low-Cost Professional Web Server
Are you serious about the professional image of your web site? I'm leasing out a very few true virtual domains on my web server. This means that you can have your own domain (www.yourbusinessname.com) for a very low monthly fee. This is not a "starter acount" like you'll see advertised at "loss-leader" prices. This is a full, professional server, with all the capabilities of my own sites. (Including unlimited mailboxes and email aliases.) Email me at
for details. Or read about it online: Low-Cost Professional Web Server.
