It’s also a great first name to own. Makes me wonder what she paid for it. :)

And you see it more often than not. It doesn’t look professional in my opinion. A great domain needs a great professional email.

I'd bet it didn't cost her a penny. My guess is that this is Mike Ber's daughter. As in Mike dot ca. And it seems Mike is redirecting several of his domains to Tia.ca.

I remember Mike from DNF days. I don’t recall ever talking to him then as I wasn’t overly active.

It breaks the brand and it's inconsistent. It seems unprofessional to me. Wasn't there a recent example here where the companies website was like a four-word hyphenated domain and then the email was under a different two-word hyphenated domain? Branding is about consistency - domains aside.

I agree and in terms of professionalism, it's right up there with using a FB page as your website. The internet allows small business to look big, as long as you do it right and don't highlight your shortcomings.

The gmail trick smacks of "we're running the business out of our parent's garage and we don't even know how to configure email accounts - please buy from us!"

People fall for the trick of registrars and webhosts when they see xx perm month per email address. Little do they know if they get a webhost with cPanel they can easily configure their mailboxes for free.

Now that is another topic that you can get started like the one you did on Dan.com. ;)

Even easier, if you put your business domain with Google Domains you can have unlimited email forwards and because you are with Google Domains you never have to worry about the emails going to the recipients spam.

I will make a tutorial on both in the next few days

When domainers we know drop something we know they wouldn't consciously drop, I'm just always worried about them. I left him a couple messages but never did hear anything back.
