Discover more about Email Aliases - what they are, what's their function and the way to create one.
An e-mail alias is an e-mail which uses the exact same mailbox as the original email. For instance, you could have email@example.com as the authentic email address and add an alias firstname.lastname@example.org. The 2 addresses will be able to share exactly the same mailbox, so emails sent to both of them shall be received in one place. You can use aliases for various purposes, for example emailing different types of people or enrolling on websites. If you ever begin to get lots of spam, for instance, you can easily erase the alias while your actual mailbox won't be changed at all and you'll retain the e-mails you need. Aliases are often perceived as an alternative to forwarding e-mails from one email address to another one if you are using a couple of email address for contact on your web site.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Website Hosting
With every single shared website hosting plan that we offer, it's possible to create tens or perhaps hundreds of aliases for every mailbox you have created in the account. The procedure is really easy and you could create or erase aliases with just a few mouse clicks via our in-house built Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature can save you time as it will likely be easier to control the emails from various addresses which you use or that are listed on your site in one place. If you reply, the other side will receive an email from the alias, not from the main e-mail address associated with the mailbox. You are able to combine this feature with e-mail filters or e-mail forwarding if you need a copy of some types of e-mails in the original mailbox as well as in other independent mailboxes.
