Once you have registered a domain name and hosted on a web hosting server next big thing would be to sign up for your branded email accounts. While technically the word signup is inaccurate; as being a registrant of your domain name and having a hosting account will make you manage your own fully branded email accounts. You can make anyone from your teams to sign-up for email accounts. Unlike other website hosting service providers, we are offering an unlimited number of email ids. You can create any number of email accounts; only the disk space is the limit.

Here we will walk you through the steps to create an email address.

Log in to your free cPanel account.

In this Email Accounts interface, you can manage all email addresses. You can Delete, Suspend and Access Webmail.

How to login to Webmail

You can access Webmail using your domain name. We will use https://example.com for this tutorial. Please replace https://example.com with your actual domain name.

Visit https://example.com:2096 and input your Email Address and Password here.

You don’t need to remember the port number 2096. You can easily access Webmail by visiting https://example.com/webmail as well.
