An e-mail alias is an e-mail that uses the very same mailbox as the original email address. For example, you could have firstname.lastname@example.org as the actual email address and add an alias email@example.com. Both the addresses will be able to share the exact same mailbox, so e-mails sent to either one of them will be received in one place. You can use aliases for a number of needs, for example getting in touch with different groups of people or signing up on web sites. For those who start getting lots of spam, for instance, you can simply delete the alias whilst your original mailbox will not be affected by any means and you'll maintain the emails that you need. Aliases in many cases are viewed as an alternative to forwarding e-mails from one mailbox to another one if you work with two or more addresses for contact on your website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with each shared hosting plan we have, will help you set up as many aliases as you want for the emails you make in your account. Creating or removing an alias will require just a couple of keys to press, so that you can manage several emails in just one mailbox no matter if you employ webmail as well as an e-mail client on your PC or smartphone. This way, you can use multiple email addresses for personal or business emails and save your time by connecting them to a single or several mailboxes. You can also combine having aliases for a given mailbox and forwarding all the inbound e-mails from a business to a personal e-mail in case you check the latter more regularly.
