Making an e-mail alias means creating an e-mail which shares the same mailbox as a completely different e-mail address for both the incoming and the outgoing e-mails. For instance, you can make an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and it'll be linked to its very own mailbox. Then, you can create an alias email@example.com, that will make use of the mailbox of sales@ and won't use a mailbox of its own. Every time you check your email messages, you will see e-mail messages sent to both of the two email addresses in one place, which may be more convenient in some circumstances as you will not have to log in and out of various mailboxes using webmail or configure numerous email addresses inside an email application. This feature is normally used as an alternative choice to forwarding messages from one e-mail address to a different one if a number of email addresses are mentioned for contact on a web site.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
With each shared hosting plan we provide, you will be able to create tens or even hundreds of aliases for every mailbox that you have created in the account. The process is quite simple you'll be able to create or delete aliases with just a few mouse clicks through our in-house made Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature will save you precious time because it will be far easier to handle the emails from various e-mail addresses which you use or that can be listed on your website in a single place. Once you answer, the other side will get an e-mail from the alias, not from the main e-mail address associated with the mailbox. You can combine this feature with e-mail filters or email forwarding should you need a backup copy of some kinds of e-mails both in the main mailbox as well as in other separate mailboxes.
