Making an e-mail alias means making an email that shares the exact same mailbox as a different e-mail address for both the inbound as well as the outgoing email messages. For example, you can create an e-mail address sales@domain.com and it'll be connected to its very own mailbox. After that, you can make an alias support@domain.com, that can use the mailbox of sales@ and will not have a mailbox of its own. Every time you check your email messages, you will see messages sent to either one of the two addresses in a single place, which may be far more convenient in some cases because you will not need to sign in and out of different mailboxes working with webmail or set up numerous email addresses inside an email program. This feature is commonly used as an alternative choice to forwarding e-mail messages from a single e-mail address to a new one if a number of addresses are included for contact on a site.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
With each shared hosting package that we offer, it's possible to create tens and even hundreds of aliases for just about any mailbox that you have created in the account. The process is quite simple and you can add or remove aliases with a couple of clicks from our in-house built Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This function can save you precious time since it will likely be more convenient to take care of the emails from various e-mail addresses that you use or that can be on your web site in one place. If you reply, the other side will receive an e-mail from the alias, not coming from the primary address associated with the mailbox. You're able to combine this option with mail filters or e-mail forwarding if you want a backup copy of some types of e-mails in the original mailbox and in other independent mailboxes.
