Hi, quick question because I'm getting confused. I wan't to set up a domain name for personal use. I wan't it to redirect mail to my gmail and in the future for my website.

The question is, i want the mail redirect to and from my Gmail account. Which company do I speak to about that once the domain name is registered? (assuming I don't have any mail services or anything already set up by the registrar.) and which is the cheapest method?

P.S. I'm in the UK and would prefer a ".co.uk" or similar, but .com or otherwise would also be fine.

Thank you.

Basically, I do not intend to set up a website at present because when I do I intend to host it myself.

For the time being I simply want to purchase the domain and use it for email.

I believe Google provide this mail forwarding service to its gmail users but upon following several links from the relevent page I couldn't find the relevent information.

Also, I believe from what i have read that it is not possible to purchase a domain indefinately, is this correct?

Please let me know where I can find your email address so I can ask further assistance, thank you.
