An email alias is actually an e-mail address that shares a mailbox with a different email address. For example, you can have email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and e-mails sent to either one of them will be received in one and the same mailbox. This feature will make it less difficult and much more convenient to manage multiple addresses because you will have to log in one mailbox if you use webmail as well as configure only one address in a email application on your computer. When you set up an alias, not only will you be able to receive messages, but you will also be able to send out e-mails from the various addresses and they will share the Outbox, so you'll have all communication in one location. Implementing aliases can be an alternative to working with different email addresses for several purposes or forwarding one e-mail address to a new one in order to handle the communication of both in a single location.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Website Hosting
With each shared website hosting package that we provide, you are able to make tens or even hundreds of aliases for any mailbox which you have created in the account. The process is quite simple and you could create or remove aliases with just a few mouse clicks with our in-house built Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This function will save you precious time since it will probably be far more convenient to manage the messages from various email addresses which you use or that are on your website in one place. Once you respond, the other side will receive an e-mail from the alias, not coming from the main address linked to the mailbox. You can combine this option with e-mail filters or email forwarding should you prefer a backup copy of some kinds of emails both in the primary mailbox and in other independent email addresses.
