An e-mail alias is an e-mail address which uses exactly the same mailbox along with the original e-mail address. For example, you could have email@example.com as the original address and add an alias firstname.lastname@example.org. The two email addresses will be able to share exactly the same mailbox, so messages sent to either one of them will be received in one place. Feel free to use aliases for various reasons, such as talking with different groups of people or registering on websites. If you begin to get a lot of spam, for example, you can simply remove the alias whilst your actual mailbox won't be changed in the slightest and you will keep the emails you need. Aliases in many cases are perceived as a replacement for forwarding e-mails from one email address to a different one if you are using 2 or more addresses for contact on your website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
You will be able to make lots of e-mail aliases with any of the shared hosting
plans we provide. Adding an alias to any existing email address inside your account takes a several mouse clicks and you’ll also be able to create or delete aliases whenever you want. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which is used to handle your website hosting accounts. The option will save you precious time if you need to control the electronic communication for various departments, each one having its own email address. If you send a response to a client, they will get the email from the alias, not from the original email address associated with the mailbox. If you have numerous sites and email addresses, you can combine using aliases together with our e-mail forwarding feature as it can be more convenient and time-saving to receive all messages in a single place.
