Domain specific email ID is an Email ID that ends with your domain name. Just like YourUserName@gmail.com, you can set up domain specific Email ID for your domain (say xxx.com) as YourUserName@xxx.com. People like to use Domain Specific Email ID, because it looks professional and it has some other benefits too, such as if you are applying for Adsense, your Domain Specific Email ID can help in approving faster due to its professional looks. Though most of the domain providers provide free email account with the domain purchase, but as a professional blogger or webmaster you need a user friendly Email account.
