Email Account Setup
One of the many benefits of owning a domain name and hosting account is that you can create custom, professionally branded email addresses. This article explains the steps to set up new email account on your domain.
Create an Email Account
First, follow the steps below to access your Email Manager:
- Log into the host account.
- Select the Hosting menu at the topmost of the page.
- Select the Email in the sub-menu.
- Use the links in the left, you can generate and manage your email accounts and other settings, like email forwarders, spam filters, auto responders, and more.
Next, follow the steps below to set up new email account:
- The Email Accounts section should already be highlighted, but if it isn’t, click on it now.
- Click Create an Email Account.
- Enter the new email address prefix (before the @ symbol), and then select the domain you want to use from the drop-down menu. Email addresses can contain periods or dots as well. For example: email@example.com.
- Create a password within the guidelines listed on the page, or click Generate Password and our system will generate one for you.
- Next, select your preferred default webmail client from the drop-down menu. If you’re not sure which one you want to use, select “I want to choose later.”

If you aren’t sure of the user’s needs, you may want to select the default limit of 250 MB now and make any necessary adjustments later. Once a user reaches their quota, any incoming mail will bounce back to the sender, so it’s important to set a reasonable limit.
