Making an email alias means creating an e-mail which shares the exact same mailbox with a different e-mail address both for the incoming and the outbound e-mails. For example, you can make an email address firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be connected to its very own mailbox. Then, you can create an alias email@example.com, which can make use of the mailbox of sales@ and will not use a mailbox of its own. Once you check your email messages, you will notice messages sent to both of the two addresses in a single place, which can be more convenient in some instances because you will not have to sign in and out of different mailboxes using webmail or create many email addresses inside an email program. This option is usually used as a replacement for forwarding emails from a single e-mail address to another if numerous addresses are listed for contact on a web site.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with each and every shared hosting plan that we provide, will allow you to create as many aliases as you need for the email addresses that you make in your own account. Creating or deleting an alias will require just a few keys to press, so you can manage several emails in just one mailbox even if you use webmail or an email client on your PC or smart phone. In this way, you can use a number of email addresses for personal or business correspondence and save time by linking all of them to a single or a few mailboxes. You can also combine having aliases for a specific mailbox and forwarding all incoming emails from a company to a private e-mail when you read the latter on a regular basis.
