Setting up an email account to end in my domain

So my domain got registered and hosted today.
However I'm struggling to actually create an email account to end in my domain name (danjoux6.co.uk)
I've gone through the manage my mail in member centre but it is just the usual ending in the username.plus.com
Also on another topic is how can I get my domain to point to another website - such as wordpress or a wix site.

Who has registered and is hosting your website ? Generally they sort the email etc from their end.

....... also danjoux.co.uk appears not to have been registered by anyone (unless it is pending) - checking on whois.co.uk shows the domain is still available.

Re: Setting up an email account to end in my domain

[Just a gentle suggestion - Opening new threads for each question isn't particularly helpful.  This question could have been tacked onto your £1 domain thread and therefore had some context.]
Your domain only appears to have been registered today.  The Plusnet DNS servers are not responding to queries regarding your domain yet so leave it 24 hours or so before testing again.
Regarding your website question, you'll need to configure the 'www' record on PN's DNS to point to the system hosting your webspace and use the tools on your hosting provider's system to direct queries for www.danjoux6.co.uk to your account.

Re: Setting up an email account to end in my domain

Sorry for not making this all clear as it could be.
I've made a correction to my OP and it should be www.danjoux6.co.uk
The domain was registered and created by Plusnet.
It's showing in my member centre as registered and hosted.

As I said, the PN DNS servers are not yet serving records for your domain - Leave it 24 hours...

Re: Setting up an email account to end in my domain

I can confirm that my email account has been set up.
However Plusnet probably need to update that page as it can be confusing if it's ending in yourusername.plus.com instead of domain.co.uk
However logging in proved a live chat to customer services as you have to enter your email address instead of username+mailbox name
