Having your own domain involves:

- Paying annually for the domain name (I pay for two or three years at a time because it's cheaper).
- Paying to host your web-site (if you care to have one, I use DiscountASP.NET because I can avoid paying for a database option I don't use.).
- Paying to host a mail-host (usually included with the web-site hosting.
- Administering the email system.

Within the email set-up you can add lots of email addresses such as wife@mydomain.com, daughter@mydomain.com, son@mydomain.com, masterofthedomain@mydomain.com and finally a handy catchall@mydomain.com which you can forward junk to to be auto-deleted. Lot's of options!

If I signup for something that might end up sending me lots of junk mail I normally create a mailbox for that thing, such as SomeCompany@mydomain.com, which I then check use for any communication with "Some Company". From this i can usually tell if they have sold my name to other mailing lists because spam mail is addressed to "SomeCompany@mydomain.com" - you set these to auto-delete regularly.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
