Making an e-mail alias means setting up an e-mail address that shares the very same mailbox with a completely different e-mail address both for the incoming as well as the outbound email messages. For instance, you can create an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be connected to its very own mailbox. After that, you can make an alias email@example.com, that will use the mailbox of sales@ and won't have a mailbox of its own. Once you look at your email messages, you will notice messages sent to both of the two addresses in a single place, which may be far more convenient in some cases as you will not need to log in and out of different mailboxes working with webmail or set up various email addresses inside an email application. This feature can be used as a replacement for forwarding e-mails from a single e-mail address to another one if a number of email addresses are included for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
With every shared hosting plan we provide, it's possible to create tens and even hundreds of aliases for every mailbox which you have created in the account. The process is really easy you'll be able to add or remove aliases with only a few clicks from our in-house developed Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature can save you time since it will probably be easier to take care of the messages from different email addresses which you use or which are listed on your web site in a single place. If you answer, the other side will receive an email from the alias, not coming from the main address linked to the mailbox. You can combine this option with e-mail filters or email forwarding if you want a backup of some kinds of emails in the primary mailbox as well as in other separate mailboxes.
