How long have you had your present phone number and main email address?
#1
I've had this phone number about 3 years. I've had the same "main" AOL email address for 24 years. Why AOL? When I first got online I was fairly migrant and wanted a service I could use anywhere I went, which pretty much ment AOL. I have told people through the years I will always have the same email (if I can) but can't promise my phone number won't change.

I know people make fun of AOL email addresses, but after 24+ years at least you know where to find me to make fun of me. Smile

The "gurus" say you should brand yourself with your email and they're not wrong. But one advantage of a third party domain name is if/when your hosting with your custom email goes down, so not only is your site down but so is your email so no one can contact you.

I've had my AOL email account since the mid '90s and one mobile phone number (German) also for a very long time.

Branding wise, what I do is use my website's email domain and forward the emails to a 3rd party such as Google. With Google you can configure out-going emails with your domain and only a real sleuth can tell the difference.
