Making an e-mail alias means making an email that shares the exact same mailbox with a totally different e-mail address both for the inbound and the outgoing emails. For instance, you can create an e-mail address email@example.com and it will be connected to a unique mailbox. Next, you can make an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, which can use the mailbox of sales@ and won't use a mailbox of its own. When you look at your e-mails, you will see e-mail messages sent to either one of the two email addresses in a single place, which can be more convenient in some cases as you will not need to sign in and out of various mailboxes using webmail or configure multiple addresses inside an email application. This option is frequently used as an alternative to forwarding e-mail messages from a single e-mail address to another one if multiple addresses are listed for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with every single shared website hosting plan that we offer, will help you set up as many aliases as you want for the email addresses that you create in your account. Setting up or deleting an alias will take just a few clicks, so you can manage various emails in just one mailbox even if you use webmail or an e-mail client on your home computer or smart phone. In this way, you can use numerous emails for private or company e-mails and save time by connecting each of them to one or several mailboxes. You can even combine having aliases for any specific mailbox and forwarding all of the inbound messages from a company to a private email address if you happen to read the latter on a regular basis.
