I am setting up my portfolio site and with it I want to have some professional email.
Many domains are already taken but I found firstNameLastName.com available.

This is problem though because originally I wanted to my email look like: firstName@lastName.com

So my question is: Is email@firstNameLastName.com is a good idea?

Thank you

P.S.: I heard that I shouldn't use any other suffix other than .com. Is that true? Because otherwise I could use lastName.net

You can use any suffix you want, .net, .company, .com , .info etc,. Whatever domain name you have.

If the .net works for you, get it.

    There's also a .name domain which looks nice and is quite underused: you might still be able to snag yours! Feb 13, 2016 at 11:49
