Hi all,

I'm going to be changing my business name to better reflect the direction I am heading. My new business name will be "Mike Larsen Studios" and typically when a site is set up, the email follows the name of the site. I don't want to have such a long extension on the email account... i.e., XXXXX@mikelarsenstudios.com. I would rather have an abbreviated email address such as XXXXX@mls.com Is it possible to do that? I know I can set up a link redirecting the short version to the lonnnnnnnnnng version but I want it set up so that people can type directly in the "to" line of their email program XXX@mls.com. I don't know if a web host can set my email to something other than one that will match the name of the web site. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Good day!

Mike

You'd have to also register mls.com and that's already taken.

Yes, you can do what you want to do, but the problem is there are no 3 character .com domains still available. There are very few 4 character ones available. If you are willing to settle for a non .com (.us, .org, .net, .info, .biz) then you may have better luck in doing what you want, but even then it will be difficult to find any 3 character name (mls for example is not available for any of these). Then you just register the short domain with someone like GoDaddy.com and use there free forwarding service to route anyname@xyz.net (or whatever domain) name to any email address you want (you won't need hosting for this domain). I use this techinique myself.
If you want to see all variations that use mls, then try this link ( http://www.whois.sc/ )
Cheers,

I had the same problem with my company address. The original address was
www.consumerdirectmortgage.com. You can't believe the number returned emails due to the length and misspelling of "mortgage". Even in 2001, there were no 3 letter domains left unless you chose a .net or alternative, and they were few. You may try as I did, your three letters of choice with a short post script, i.e. xyz@mlsphoto.com.

I changed mine to www.CDMLoans.com and forwarded the longer version to the new and has served me well.
