After creating your blog or website, you need to think about how people can contact you. In this case, you can use any email address, but if you want to look professional, then you have to create your own website email addresses. It’s not hard and you can follow these steps and everything will be ready.

Configuring your domain name email address

Before starting, you need to have a cPanel hosting simply because of the easy uses and the features that come with that control panel. The majority of modern hosting companies offer that tool. So, login to cPanel and then locate the Email Accounts icon as the below screenshot.

As you can, you have just to add the name that will be added to the domain name, it’s like creating a Gmail or Yahoo email, but this time for your domain name. When you enter the password to access your inbox, click the button to create the account and it’s done.

The good thing about cPanel is that you can forward that email to your personal inbox and manage everything from there. In other words, you don’t need to login to your web mail account every day and read or send emails, the full email will be hosted in your preferred email provider. To do that, read, how to forward a domain name to Gmail.

Please make sure that your hosting provider offers a spam filtering tool that protects your full email. There are thousands of people and millions of bots that send automatic emails to every domain name they find online, and it’s necessary to have that protection. There is no need to enable it, it will be installed automatically.

At the same time, to access your site email from directly, click the same icon that takes you to email accounts, then you will see that one you’ve created, in this step click the More option as the below example.

Then, you can see two options, one of them is the web mail access, click on it and a new page will be opened where you can check your incoming emails and send replies and everything. You need to add your email password and that’s for security reasons.

This is the way to use for making emails for domain names, however, some hosting companies offer the site storage only and not the email, in this case, that happens, especially with managed hosting, you need to use an external email service that you need to link directly to your domain name provider.

What if the web host is not offering emails?

There are lots of services that offer a protected email hosting, but NameCheap is the best one of them. They offer good service and enough disk space to store your email and protect everything.

That best thing to do with your email is to make it secure as possible, especially to never share it anywhere you go online. Also, make sure to never use it to create accounts on any website like the social networks and so on. They can use it to send you lots of promotions and you will receive thousands of commercial email, even with spam protection, So, keep things professional and use your domain email for business only.
