Making an e-mail alias means setting up an email address that shares the same mailbox with a completely different address both for the inbound as well as the outbound e-mail messages. For example, you can create an email address email@example.com and it'll be linked to its own mailbox. Then, you can create an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, which will use the mailbox of sales@ and won't use a mailbox of its own. When you check your emails, you'll see email messages sent to both of the two addresses in one place, which may be more convenient in some instances because you will not have to sign in and out of numerous email addresses using webmail or configure various email addresses inside an email application. This option is usually used as a replacement for forwarding e-mails from one e-mail address to another one if numerous addresses are listed for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with every single web hosting plan we have, will help you set up as many aliases as you need for the email addresses you make inside your account. Setting up or removing an alias will take just a few keys to press, so that you can manage various email addresses in just one mailbox no matter if you use webmail or an e-mail client on your PC or smartphone. This way, you can take advantage of numerous emails for personal or business emails and save your time by connecting all of them to one or a few mailboxes. You may also combine having aliases for a specific mailbox and forwarding all incoming emails from a company to a private e-mail if you check the latter on a regular basis.
