Many businesses use Gmail for their email communications. This state of affairs is what has brought into existence a category of Gmail accounts referred to as ‘Gmail business accounts.’ The Gmail business accounts fall into two broad categories.
In the first category, we have Gmail business accounts that are based on the respective owners’ websites’ domain names. And in the second category, we have Gmail business accounts that are based on the default Gmail domain name (Gmail.com).
The arrangement that brings into being the Gmail business accounts that are based on the respective owners’ websites’ domain names is a sophisticated one. It is one where, at the most basis level, a person or an organization opts to use the Gmail software to manage email, without having to use Gmail.com suffix in the email addresses. This is pretty much the same way we see some people opting to operate blogs using Google’s blogger system, without actually having to use blogspot.com sub-domains.
The arrangement where Gmail business accounts have the gmail.com suffix is much simpler to implement. It is simply a question of setting up ordinary Gmail accounts (in the normal way) and then dedicating such accounts for business use. But this is also viewed as a less-sophisticated approach to business email communications.
