An e-mail alias is an e-mail which uses exactly the same mailbox along with the primary e-mail. For example, you could have email@example.com as the actual address and add an alias firstname.lastname@example.org. Both the email addresses will be able to share exactly the same mailbox, so emails sent to either one of them shall be received in one place. You can use aliases for various reasons, for example talking with various groups of people or registering on web sites. Any time you start getting lots of spam, for instance, you can simply get rid of the alias whilst your actual mailbox will not be changed in any way and you'll retain the communication that you need. Aliases are often considered to be a replacement for forwarding messages from one mailbox to another one if you work with more than one email address for contact on your website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
With each and every shared hosting
package that we offer, it's possible to make tens or even hundreds of aliases for any mailbox which you have created in the account. The process is very easy and you could add or delete aliases with just a couple of clicks with our in-house developed Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature will save you precious time as it will likely be far easier to handle the emails from different addresses which you use or which are on your website in a single place. Any time you respond, the other side will receive an email from the alias, not coming from the primary address associated with the mailbox. You'll be able to combine this feature with mail filters or e-mail forwarding should you need a backup of some types of e-mails in the original mailbox and in other separate mailboxes.
E-mail Aliases in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server
through us and you also would like to set up aliases for each existing mailbox inside your account, it won't take you more than a couple of clicks to do this. You are able to create or delete aliases for a given mailbox at any moment from the Emails area of the in-house developed Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the semi-dedicated packages. The function will allow you to manage your mail correspondence much easier when you employ various email addresses in various sections of your web site. When you combine it with our email forwarding feature as well as the filters you could create, copies of all incoming messages sent to completely different mail addresses/aliases may be kept both in the main mailbox for common usage and in the mailboxes of others - business personnel responsible for different tasks, for example.
