Opening a new email account is very easy. The process of opening a new email account is commonly referred to as the sign up process. Under normal circumstances, it should take you about 5 to 10 minutes to successfully create a new email account. But, there are certain important points that you have to bear in mind when creating a new email account. To start with, you must remember to choose a user name that you are comfortable with and one that you can easily recall. Most users fail to take this into account and usually end up failing to access their accounts shortly after signing up.
Apart from this, make sure you know the password by heart. Alternatively, you can save the password on a new doc file. It will become much easier for you to access your account in future in case you forget the password. When you have managed to take all the factors above into account, you can proceed to making a new email account with Gmail.
The first thing to do is to log on to mail.google.com. This is the address of the web page that has the sign up link. As an alternative, you can also log on to gmail.com. You will also find a link that can lead you to creating a new gmail account. When the web page you had requested for has opened, simply click on sign up and you will be redirected to the page where you will be required to fill in various fields as part of the sign up process.
First of all, you will be required to fill in your first and last names. These can be your real names or nick names. It is entirely up to you to make the choice that you are comfortable with. After filling in your two names, you will be required to choose your user name. The system will guide you through this process. When you have chosen a user name that exists already, you will be prompted to choose a different user name. To make things easier you, the system will generate examples of user names that you can choose from. After this, you will be required to enter a new password. The password will be required to be in small letters and a mixture of both letters and numbers. The next block will require you to confirm your password. If the passwords you had entered in the two blocks do not match, the system will prompt you to go over this step again until the passwords in the two blocks have matched.
After this, you will be required to enter your birthday and your gender will immediately follow after this. The next block is for your mobile phone, which should include your country code. The system will generate the country code on your behalf. If you have a current email address, you will also be required to fill it into the next field.
After all the steps above, you will be required to prove that you are human and to agree to the terms and conditions. You have created your gmail account.
