    Hi Everyone,
    What are some good tips to keep in mind while creating an e-mail account for my photography.
    Should i try to keep the e-mail address short or could it be long?
    Thanks

    I've always believed that with domain names they should be as short as possible.

    [your name] @ [your website]
    or
    [info] @ [your website]

    Or maybe;
    [your name] @ [popular e-mail company]
    [your company name] @ [popular e-mail company]

    Short is normally better. I seem to collect domains.

    I'd keep it short so it is more easily remembered. If it gets too long there is a better chance of it being passed on incorrectly.

    I don't know about you but I never remember email addresses unless it's someone's name. So I'd go with (yourfirstname)@ (yourdomain).com

    I believe that ease of relay is just as important as length. For example, you want a domain that you could say once and have people be able to go home and type in, without clarification.

    For what it's worth, I went the super-casual route, using hello@mydomain. Responses come from mike@mydomain.
