    Google stopped supported Push email through Exchange.

    If you want Push Gmail, use the Gmail App.

    Not sure what you mean by 'own domain'?

    Yes, this is possible if you are using a paid tier of Google Apps for Business or Education. You'll need to make sure you have it set up to manage devices, then set up your email account on your iPhone as an Exchange account. I recently did this to get back Push as well.

    As you said, though, Google Apps does require you to have your own domain name, but that's as simple as buying one from any of the myriad registrars and then pointing the MX records to Gmail's servers.

    First, sign up for Google Apps. Then, during setup, it will ask you to set up Gmail.

    At your domain name registrar, add the following MX records to your DNS records: https://support.google.com/a/answer/174125?hl=en

    Once Google Apps recognizes that your domain is pointing to Gmail, you can set up email accounts, etc. Then you can enable Exchange: https://support.google.com/a/users/answer/138740?hl=en

    No, it won't work for a Gmail account—this will only work for new or existing Google Apps accounts. You can, however, pretty easily copy/transfer your emails from Gmail to Google Apps once set up.

    I was just going to mention that NuevaSync is one of the alternatives that seems to be mentioned here and there (aside from Google Apps option).

    Of course the other options are other apps that can do push for Gmail, like the Gmail app, or Mailbox app. Also forwarding Gmail to another account like Hotmail or iCloud which support push.
