Business use of email addresses

Just recently I have started doing a lot of networking again, as I write this I'm sat with a stack of business cards in front of me! What is really striking is that most of them use a free email address, instead of their domain name. OK so a small amount don't have a website or their own domain name, which when we are living in times of ever dwindling use of paper directories is just a big NO, NO. But even more than this, people are just as likely to email you as to phone you these days for an initial contact, and by using your domain name in your email address they are likely to have a look at your website. Which is another sin of business, if you don't have a website these days, your business may never be found. Your webhost should allow you to have emails, and I'm not sure why businesses don't use this! If you know perhaps drop us an email to let us know.
