Making an email alias means creating an e-mail which shares the same mailbox as a completely different address both for the inbound as well as the outbound emails. For example, you’re able to create an e-mail address email@example.com and it will be associated with its very own mailbox. Then, you can make an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, that can use the mailbox of sales@ and won't have a mailbox of its own. Every time you look at your e-mails, you will see emails sent to either one of the two email addresses in one location, which can be more convenient in some cases as you will not need to log in and out of various mailboxes using webmail or create numerous addresses in an email app. This option is normally used as an alternative to forwarding email messages from a single e-mail address to another one if multiple email addresses are listed for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with every single shared web hosting plan we provide, will help you to set up as many aliases as you want for any of the emails that you create in your own account. Setting up or removing an alias will require only a couple of clicks, so that you can manage various email addresses in a single mailbox even if you use webmail as well as an email client on your desktop computer or smart phone. In this way, you can use a number of email addresses for personal or company e-mails and save time by linking all of them to one or several mailboxes. You may even combine having aliases for any given mailbox and forwarding all the inbound emails from a business to a private e-mail if you happen to check the latter on a regular basis.
