EmailField is a CharField that checks the value for a valid email address using EmailValidator. EmailValidator validates a email through predefined regex which checks ‘@’ and a ‘.’ defined after it. One can change the regex by exploring options from EmailValidator itself.
field_name = models.EmailField(max_length=254, **options)
EmailField has one extra required argument:
The maximum length (in characters) of the field. The
max_length is enforced at the database level and in Django’s validation using MaxLengthValidator.

Now when we run
makemigrations command from the terminal,
Python manage.py makemigrations

geeks_field EmailField is created when you run migrations on the project. It is a field to store email address in database.
How to use EmailField ?
EmailField is used for storing an email address in the database. One can store email id form any domain. Let’s try storing an email id instance in model created above.
Now let’s check it in admin server. We have created an instance of GeeksModel.
Field Options are the arguments given to each field for applying some constraint or imparting a particular characteristic to a particular Field. For example, adding an argument
null = True to EmailField will enable it to store empty values for that table in relational database.
Here are the field options and attributes that a EmailField can use.
|Null||If True, Django will store empty values as NULL in the database. Default is False.|
|Blank||If True, the field is allowed to be blank. Default is False.|
|Choices||An iterable (e.g., a list or tuple) of 2-tuples to use as choices for this field.|
|Default||The default value for the field. This can be a value or a callable object. If callable it will be called every time a new object is created.|
|help_text||Extra “help” text to be displayed with the form widget. It’s useful for documentation even if your field isn’t used on a form.|
|primary_key||If True, this field is the primary key for the model.|
|Unique||If True, this field must be unique throughout the table.|
