Most hosting companies allow you to simply forward emails to your personal account. For example, I can have info@irestonewebdesign, sales@irestonewebdesign, contact@irestonewebdesign all forwarded to my Gmail account.

In order to send an email from your personal account using your domain name extension, you must verify that you own the email. By doing this, the email is added to a From drop down when you are composing a new email.
