Once you get started with email marketing, you might want to consider creating an email account which you can use as a default sending address.
So instead of using free email accounts like Google Mail or Yahoo Mail, sending emails associated with your domain would look much more professional to your subscribers.
In this tutorial, I’m going to share with you how I created an email account with my hosting account – SiteGround.
Let’s get started…
Creating an Email Account
To create an email account with SiteGround, follow these steps…
- Access cPanel.
- Go to Mail > Email Accounts.
- Create an email account.
Step 1. Access cPanel.
Login to your SiteGround account. Once you’re signed in, go to My Accounts tab and click on Go to cPanel.
If you get a prompt to access cPanel securely, just click on Proceed to continue.
Step 2. Go to Mail > Email Accounts.
In cPanel, look for Mail section and click on Email Accounts icon.
Step 3. Create an email account.
From the Email Accounts section, you can start creating an email account associated with your domain.
Things you should know…
- Email – Enter a username for your account.
- Password – Choose a strong password for secure access.
- Confirm Password – Retype the password you choose to confirm.
- Mailbox Quota – Leave to default (250MB) or adjust as per your requirement.
When you’re done, click on Create Account.
Once the account has been created, you should get a confirmation message like this below…
To verify, see if you can find the email you’ve just created under the Account @ Domain section. There, you can also modify the password/mailbox quota or even delete the account.
And there you have it! I hope you learned from this tutorial. If you find this post useful, please share this to
