Making an e-mail alias means creating an email which shares the exact same mailbox as a completely different address for both the incoming as well as the outgoing email messages. For example, you are able to create an e-mail address email@example.com and it will be associated with its own mailbox. Then, you can create an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, which will make use of the mailbox of sales@ and won't use a mailbox of its own. Every time you look at your emails, you will see messages sent to either one of the two email addresses in a single place, which might be far more convenient in some circumstances as you will not need to log in and out of different mailboxes working with webmail or configure multiple email addresses in an email application. This feature is commonly used as a substitute for forwarding messages from a single e-mail address to another if numerous addresses are listed for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
With each and every shared hosting package we offer, you are able to make tens or perhaps hundreds of aliases for any mailbox which you have created in the account. The procedure is very easy and you could create or delete aliases with just a couple of mouse clicks with our in-house built Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature can save you time considering that it will probably be far easier to handle the e-mails from different email addresses that you use or that are on your web site in one place. Once you reply, the other side will get an e-mail from the alias, not coming from the main address linked to the mailbox. You're able to combine this feature with email filters or email forwarding if you want a backup of some types of e-mails both in the primary mailbox as well as in other separate mailboxes.
