Lesson 2 – Part 5 – Setup Additional Business Email Accounts
Setup Additional Business Email Accounts
Welcome back to the second lesson in the Start Building Your Website Here Tutorial Series. In this fifth part of the lesson we will add additional email accounts to your domain.
The chances are you may have one or two employees or partners or people that work with you that would benefit from having an email address with your business name in it. So we’re going to give them one.
To start off, we will log in to HostGator Control Panel
and then scroll down and select Email Accounts. This will bring up the Email Accounts dialog box. Now all we need to do is enter an email name. So for example, we enter the name “brad” and you can see this check mark here which means, this name is still available. If you have more than one domain in your hosting account, like I do, you make sure that the correct domain name is selected in this drop down menu.
Next you can either enter a password or generate a password. Now let me show you how this goes, so I’ll click this button right here. As you can see, it automatically generated a password that is considered to be very strong. You’ll notice that it has the characteristic of a good password because it has uppercase letters, lowercase letters, symbols and numbers. So we’ll go ahead and use that but first, we need to copy this. Then tick the box “I have copied this password in a safe place.” and select “Use Password”. Now all that’s left for me to do is to create this email account, so I go ahead and click “Create”. And here we go, we’ve created the account firstname.lastname@example.org. Now you can repeat that process for as many email accounts you need to create here at HostGator.
That brings us the end of this lesson on setting up business email accounts. In Lesson 3, we will install WordPress which is the software we will use to create our small business website.
