Email Address For Your Blog Domain : One advantage of owning your own domain name for your blog is the ability to create a unique email address using your domain’s name. For instance, if your domain’s address is “PatsBlog.com” you can create an address that is similar to email@example.com as well as firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an email address for professional use which is ideal for any blogger and especially for those seeking a business email address to offer to clients.
If you’ve followed the steps I’ve described in Step 2 to set up your blog, you’ll be able to create personalized email addresses at free. Here’s how:
1. Visit BlueHost’s homepage. BlueHost website and click on the “Login” tab on the upper right.
2. Log in with your login details into the BlueHost cPanel.
- Be aware that the username for the BlueHost account might be different from that for the password for your WordPress blog.
- If you’re unable to remember your password, you may always follow”forgot password” on this page “forgot password” link on this page to reset it.
3. After logging-in, Click on the “Advanced” tab in the left sidebar.
4. Scroll down to hit “Email Accounts”
5. Hit”blue” to activate the “+CREATE” button on the right.
6. Fill in the information to create your email account and then click”+CREATE” at the bottom of the page “+CREATE” button at the at the bottom on the screen.
- 100MB of storage space is plenty to begin, and should last for quite a while, unless you receive a lot of large attachments to emails.
7. After your account is established, you are able to log in and begin using it.
- The easiest method to accomplish this is to return on the BlueHost homepage. Click the login tab on the top right and then click”webmail login” as the “webmail login” option.
If you’re feeling technologically adventurous, you could take a look at for the “forwarding” and “autoresponders” sections of BlueHost’s BlueHost mail manager. These are great tools that I’ll discuss in a subsequent blog article.
