I’ve just started with disroot, as I transition off google/microsoft products for privacy reasons. I’m a little confused about setting up a custom email domain though, and was hoping someone could enlighten me- for a new person like me it can all be a little confusing!
Say I want to get the email firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d like to be able to use it on my phone (K9 mail) and desktop (Thunderbird). I would like to set all my clients up to connect to disroot.org servers.
I want my mail to remain private.
From what I understand I will be able to use my nextcloud server to host my emails. So my question is, will the following process work:
- Register a domain with a domain register, ensuring WHOIS privacy (also suggestions for a registrars please!)
- Follow the steps in the domain linking help page and request the alias email@example.com
- Follow the steps in the setup email alias howto to be able to use this email in one’s various clients
Thanks for any help people can provide! I’m especially torn about which registrar to go with, so any suggestions there would be of great assistance.
