Hey bloggers, did you finally start that blog in 2019? If so, great! If you are using Bluehost as your web hosting provider, one of the first things you should do is create an Email address for your new domain. Rather than have a personal email account as your main point of contact for your blog or business, create an email account using your domain name.
By creating a custom email address with your domain name, you will appear more professional to your readers and potential customers.
Bluehost makes it VERY SIMPLE to create custom email accounts for your domain name. It takes less than 5 minutes to complete. Today’s tutorial will walk you through every step of the process:
Step 1: Long into your Bluehost account
Step 2: Click on “Email and Office”
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom and below the “Email Only” header, click on “See Options.” This takes you to your cPanel.
Step 4: Create your new email account under “Add Email Account.”
Step 5: Create the account name
- You will create the account name (the part before the @ symbol). I recommend “info” or “contact” or “YOUR FIRST NAME”.
- Choose a strong password and verify it.
- Select the mailbox quota you want the account to have. Since this is for yourself, I recommend selecting “Unlimited.”
- If you want to get a welcome notification upon configuring your account through an email application, leave the checkbox as is (defaults to checked).
Step 6: Hit “Create Account”
- Hit “Create Account”
- You’ll get a “Success” notification and the option to view the account.
Step 7: Configure Devices
Once your account is successfully set up, Bluehost gives you instructions on how to configure your devices. To access this information, click on the “Email Accounts” tab.
- Click on “Configure Devices” under “Actions”
- Two options pop up at the bottom left: “Set Up Mail Client” and “Configure Calendars and Contacts.”
- Follow the instructions for your specific device to begin using your new account
Step 8: Update your site
Don’t forget to update your site with your new email address so that visitors can start using it right away.
See how easy that was? I hope this tutorial was helpful in setting up your new Bluehost email account, and I will be supplementing this post with a video tutorial in the near future.
