Once you’ve registered a domain name and signed up for web hosting, you can set up a custom email address that uses your domain name.
For example, I created this email account – firstname.lastname@example.org through my hosting provider SiteGround which I intend to use for administrative purposes on this website.
Rather than using a free email account from Google, Yahoo, etc., using an email address with my own domain name would not only look professional but also appear relevant and associated with my website.
So, if you’re hosted with SiteGround and would like to set up a custom email with your domain name, then this tutorial is for you.
In this tutorial, I’m going to show you step by step how to create an email account with your domain name through SiteGround.
Let’s get started.
Login to SiteGround. Under My Accounts tab, click Go to cPanel.
If you see a prompt about accessing cPanel securely, just click on Proceed to continue.
Create an email account
In cPanel, scroll down to Mail section and select Email Accounts.
Next, fill out the required information.
- Email – Enter your preferred email address.
- Password – Provide a strong password for secure access.
- Mailbox Quota – The maximum mailbox quota will depend on your hosting package.
Once you’re done, click Create Account.
It only takes a few seconds to create a new email account.
To confirm, check the Account @ Domain section on the same page and see if the newly created email account exist.
That’s it! You’ve now created an email account associated with your domain name.
You can connect the account to your mailbox client or access it via webmail. Then, send a test mail to yourself and see if that works.
