Hey @Benh32. Let me first just say, the way my mind works I thought you were asking for help reading. Yes, I often ignore punctuation when reading. Maybe I'm the one that needs help reading?

 

Sounds like all you need to buy is the domain of your choice and forward it. Check out Forward my domain and What's the difference between domain forwarding and masking? You might also want to invest in a email plan for your domain but that's not required. I hope that helps?

 

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
