Long time user of one ISP. Service is quietly spiralling down. FTTC not got here yet although Openreach vans are circling.
Have had same ISP email addresses for 15 years but already have gmail set up for travelling, mobiles etc. Want to try and future proof collective family email addresses (minimal 5 inboxes) against future changes in ISP by registering domain firstname.lastname@example.org with forwarding and probably a specific email service to tide us over.
A) have I understood correctly that this is eminently doable and not expensive?
B) Am I right that to have the domain registered to me I need a specialist Domain Name registrar rather than doing it through the ISP or I'll be in the same mess again?
C) Namecheap, Network Solutions and Daily all seem to offer me domain registration, email forwarding and a separate email service to tide me over a change in ISP. Anyone got experience with any of them (or anyone else they can recommend/warn me off)?
D) Anyone using Zen as their ISP?
E) When I am ready to jump am I right that I need a MAC code from current provider and then new provider will swap service across?
