Your message board is fully customizable to the look and feel of your own Website.  You can make it seem as if it is part of your Website to your users.  Yet the message boards are hosted on's server and all you need to do is cut and paste some simple HTML to your site.

Offer your own Web based email system using your domain at for FREE.  We noticed many Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club Webmasters have now obtained their own domains.  We began offering Web based email with the domain some time ago and have been surprised how many visitors have chosen to use the system.

 The email system has generated a lot of traffic for the Website.  Each email sent through the system has a link back to the Website.  Many of the unit members would rather use the email with the unique domain other than a AOL, Hotmail or similar address.

If you have your own domain name for your Website, it is not difficult to set up your own free Web based email system like ours for the members of your unit to use. 

It does require some changes to be made to the DNS MX zone records of your domain.  It is not difficult to have your ISP make those changes for you.  We have set up over ten of the Web based email systems and if you click through the link below, we will be able to offer you some assistance and advice if needed.  Click through here to get started opening a FREE account.
