Very definitely...  You pick your names that you want to use (email
addresses, domain names, etc.).  If your service provider sucks, you
pick up your bat and ball and play with them in someone else's yard.
Everybody else is none-the-wiser about you changing hosts.

Alternatively, if you use an ISPs services directly, you can only use
the names that they allow you.  And you'll lose them if you change
hosts, or they go out of business.  For businesses, losing your contacts
can be a death knell.  And it's none-too-good for personal contacts,

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
