Uncover what e-mail aliases are and how they operate within your hosting account.
Making an email alias means creating an email address which shares the very same mailbox with a different e-mail address for both the incoming and the outgoing e-mails. For instance, you can create an e-mail address email@example.com and it will be linked to a unique mailbox. Then, you can make an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, which will use the mailbox of sales@ and does not use a mailbox of its own. If you check your email messages, you'll see emails sent to either one of the two addresses in a single place, which can be far more convenient in some instances because you will not have to log in and out of various email addresses working with webmail or configure numerous addresses inside an email program. This feature is normally used as an alternative to forwarding e-mails from one e-mail address to another if numerous email addresses are listed for contact on a web site.
E-mail Aliases in Cloud Hosting
With every cloud hosting
plan we offer, you are able to create tens or even hundreds of aliases for just about any mailbox that you have created in the account. The process is quite simple you'll be able to create or delete aliases with only a couple of clicks via our in-house developed Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature will save you precious time since it will probably be far more convenient to take care of the e-mails from various email addresses that you use or that can be on your site in a single place. Once you answer back, the other side will get an email from the alias, not coming from the primary address associated with the mailbox. You can combine this option with email filters or email forwarding should you prefer a copy of some kinds of e-mails both in the main mailbox and in other independent mailboxes.
